An event to raise money for the local animal shelter is being held tonight and is called Wine and Whiskers. Heather Hora, who is organizing the benefit for PAWS and More at Wooden Wheel Vineyards, shares she’s doing this to support the shelter that helps animals and holds outreach events while operating on a “shoe-string budget.” Also, she’s helping to show her children that it’s important to give back to the community and to be good citizens. Hora is a member of the Iowa Pork Board and adds she wants to teach people about the work the livestock industry does to take proper care of animals.

Entertainment tonight includes Taylor Wiebers, the 2015 Miss Iowa. Tickets are $25 per person.
