Purchase tickets


Held at the beautiful Gorecki Center at the College of St. Benedict in St. Joseph, Wine, Kibbles & Bids is one of the Society’s biggest and most important fundraisers of the year.  As the name suggests, you will enjoy wine and beer tasting (non-alcoholic options are available), a gourmet dinner, and one of the areas largest and greatest silent auctions.  You will also hear live music by the beautiful and incredibly talented Kelly Cordes, and -- best of all -- you will get to interact with some special furry guests!  If you love animals, you won’t want to miss this one-of-a-kind event!


2017 Sponsor Opportunities  range from $500 to $5,000 and include complimentary tickets to the event and varying forms of recognition.  Sponsorships must be approved and confirmed by March 31, 2017 to receive pre-event recognition.

Silent Auction Item Donations are greatly appreciated!  This event is popular for having one of the largest silent auctions in Central Minnesota, with over 200 unique things to bid on. Things that we look for include unique pet items, sporting event tickets, vacation packages, catered dinners, quilts, pottery, jewelry, antiques, wine baskets, beer baskets, golf packages, photography packages, tickets to concerts, plays and other fine arts, gift cards, live plants/floral arrangements, garden art, etc...  Also, if you are a local business in the St. Cloud area and would like to donate a silent auction item, we would be happy to have a volunteer pick it up!  The deadline to donate a silent auction item is April 23, 2017.

Donate Wine or Craft Beer for our barrel of wine and craft beer pail raffle items!  The more variety the better, so get creative and be as generous as you are willing and able!  We will be accepting donations for these raffle items right up until the event.
