Wonderful turnout in Chilliwack for Wine for Whiskers

Funds from this event support the Chilliwack SPCA's operational expenses and $14k will go far

The BCSPCA Chilliwack branch is thrilled with the huge support offered by the community for its Wine for Whiskers fundraiser on Tuesday night at Bravo Restaurant and Lounge on Yale Road..

“It was a fantastic evening at Bravo raising over $14,000,” said Ivanna Ferris, manager of the Chilliwack branch.

Wine for Whiskers has become an annual event for the local, not-for-profit SPCA, running since 2010.

“Funds from this event support our Chilliwack branch operational expenses and medical budget for the care of our shelter animals,” Ferris said.

There was a silent auction, as well as a live auction for the many generously donated items, as well as prize draws, wine sampling, tasty hors d’oeuvres and more, at Bravo Restaurant and Lounge.

“I love this event because it highlights the tremendous support we receive from our community partners,” said Ferris.

“Local businesses and our veterinary clinics in Chilliwack are extremely generous to our cause, donating items for our silent and live auction.”
