RIDGWAY – High fashion will hit the catwalk at the second annual Wine & Whiskers Carnival this Saturday, Feb. 21, at the Ouray County 4H Event Center. As part of the full night of entertainment in support of the Second Chance Humane Society, the Fashion Cabaret combines fashion and music for an exciting and sizzling show.

“We have almost 30 models in the show this year and they have attacked each rehearsal with such passion and commitment that performance night is undoubtedly going to deliver a huge bang for the buck,” said Second Chance Executive Director Kelly Goodin.

The evening begins with complimentary wine from 6-7 p.m., coupled with deliciously decadent samplers from chefs throughout Ouray, San Miguel and Montrose counties.

“Last year the food was spectacular, offering a broad range of styles and choices, and I don’t expect anything less this year,” said Goodin. “Our regional chefs are as talented as they are generous.”

Silent and live auctions stocked with over 200 items will be held in support of the region’s only animal shelter that also offers numerous outreach programs and services to the community.

The evening concludes with dancing to Telluride’s DJ Antone.

“Dress is casual chic and the theme is Mardi Gras, which leaves things open to interpretation and encourages creative flair,” said Goodin of the evening’s dress code.

Tickets are $35 and available at the door, which opens at 6 p.m. A cash bar will be available all night. For more information, or to learn about volunteering at the event, contact event planner Lisa Katz at 729-2586 or visit the Second Chance website www.secondchancehumanesociety.org.
