Fine Food and a Fashion Show Not Soon to be Forgotten!

The Miss Winkles Pet Adoption Center invites you to join us for our 9th annual fundraiser on October 11th as your furry friends (cats, dogs and potbellied pigs) prance on the catwalk. You will enjoy a wide variety of heavy hors d’oeuvres and wine as you cheer on the Pet Fashion Show’s four-legged finalists. If you haven’t signed up your pet, you still have time Tuesday through Sunday at the adoption center. The $25 entry fee benefits the animals. Tickets for the fundraiser are just $45 per person. Enjoy the silent and dessert auctions, too. Info: www.misswinklesclovispetadoption.org or call (559) 324-2476.
