ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) The Tri-County Humane Society holds its 13th annual Wine, Kibbles and Bids fundraiser tonight.

It begins at 5:30 pm at the Gorecki Center on the College of St. Benedict campus.

Society spokeswoman Marit Ortega says there will be a gourmet dinner, a silent auction with around 200 items up for bid, along with live music and wine and beer tasting.

She says the event is the Humane Society's second largest fundraiser each year. They expect to raise about $30,000 tonight to cover the organization's day to day expenses of finding new homes for cats, dogs and other small animals.
