"Weim and Cheese" auction April 21
By Jeaneane Payne
Wolf Creek Weimaraner Rescue (WCWR) will hold its annual auction at St. George's Greek Orthodox Church on Saturday, April 21 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
"Weim" refers to the Weimaraner breed, which was originally bred by German aristocrats for large game hunting. While modern day Weimaraners are a popular choice of puppy, lack of awareness regarding the Weimaraner's high-energy level and desire to be "part of the family" leave many owners surrendering their Weimaraners to WCWR.
The fundraiser will offer both live and silent auctions. Items for bid include: two Kenny Chesney concert tickets, weekend getaway packages, dinner/movie tickets, gift baskets, and various types of art by renowned and local artists.
WCWR President Amber Keirn is still accepting donation items for the auction.
Musical entertainment will be provided by Kimber Cleveland and Roxie Randle of As Girls Go, a two-piece adult contemporary band from Nashville that performs Top 40 music. Cleveland is a long-time supporter of WCWR and other dog rescues including Pit Bull rescue.
Tickets are $30 per person in advance and $35 per person at the door. Children 10 and under are free. Donations are appreciated and the 2012 WCWR calendar and Weim and Cheese T-shirts will be available with all proceeds going to the rescue. Tickets can be purchased online at www.wcweimrescue.org and at Hemp Monkeys in Turkey Creek.
