Add a chance to win a few prizes and what could be better?
Members of the Langlade County Humane Society hope the answer is nothing, and that people turn out for the first Petals for Paws fund-raiser scheduled Saturday evening at the River Ridge Flower Farm, located across from Riverview Golf Course at W11915 Highland Rd.
Kevin and Trudy Bula have graciously opened their lily farm and restored barn, filled with antiques and unique items, for the event, which will include a selection of ice cold Wisconsin beers and sangria with fresh fruit.
There will also be a “forget-me-not’ prize garden, silent auction items and 50/50 raffles.
A special feature will be bucket raffles for baskets filled with a variety of outstanding prizes, all sponsored by various businesses and volunteers,
The list includes a “Feeling Lucky” lotto bouquet, “Got Meat?” basket with meat cards and slow cooker, “Go Brewers!” Rock Bat and bobbleheads, an outdoor log bench and metal art, gas cards, and a “4 Wheelin’ Wagon’ filled with a basket of tools.
There is also a “Romancing Antigo” basket offering dinner, movie and flowers, and “Boy’s Rule” and Girl’s Rule” baskets.
The evening will also include an opportunity to visit with Humane Society board members and discuss what’s up-and-coming for the organization.
All proceeds will benefit the society, which operates the animal shelter in Antigo. Tax-deductible contributions may be sent to the Society at 2204 Clermont St., Antigo, 54409.
