BELOIT, WI –The Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin has announced they will once again host their much-anticipated community event ‘Mutts & Martinis’ on Thursday, October 28th from 6-9pm at The Beloit Club. This year’s event is made possible by a generous donation from Blackhawk Bank.

With an added plated dinner component, Mutts & Martinis is a brand-new gala experience that you won’t want to miss. The menu features three mouthwatering meals, including a beef, chicken, or vegan option, plus a delectable chocolate-covered cheesecake bite dessert. Prepare for a night of delicious food, specialty martinis, silent and live auctions, tastings, and more!

“Mutts & Martinis has been a staple in our community for many years,” says Business Development Director, Kaitie Swedlund. “While cancelling in 2020 was disappointing, it gave us time to go back to the drawing board and put on an event that will be bigger and better than ever.”

Doors open at 6pm and dinner begins at 6:30pm. Get the latest goings-on of The Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin with a special presentation by Executive Director, Jim McMullen. Spend the evening sipping Lolli-Pups and Canine Cosmos, socializing, and making memories while supporting HSSW’s mission to help pets go home again.

“Blackhawk Bank is very honored to be the 2021 Presenting Sponsor for Mutts & Martinis and help raise the WOOF for the Humane Society,” says Phil Whitehead of Blackhawk Bank. “Anything is paw-sible with the help of the community. Get your ticket’s today and do your part to help man’s best friend!”
