Cowley Co. Humane fundraiser set for April 14

Cowley County Humane Society will hold its eighth annual wine-tasting benefit auction, “Peace, Love, and Paws,” April 14 at Baden Square in Winfield.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and tickets are $20 for food, wine and fun, with all proceeds going to help the 3,000 animals that come through the doors at CCHS yearly. Dress is casual, but if you want to get in the groove, dig out your ’60s and ’70s gear. Kenny DiVall is the wine host, and food and wine will be served by CCHS volunteers.

Go to to purchase tickets and see items available in the auction. For more information, call 620-442-1698 or 620-221-1698.

Chocolate sales to aid bunny rescue group

Bunny TNT has joined with two local candy-makers to help educate people about bunnies and to raise money for the rabbit rescue group.

Through April 7, Cero’s Candies, 1108 E. Douglas, will sell bunny pins with a chocolate bunny for $3.50, and Cocoa Dolce Artisan Chocolates, 2132 N. Rock Road, Suite 100, will have bunny candy for $2.50 and a two-piece box including bunny candy for $5.

Bunny TNT and the national Make Mine Chocolate campaign remind people that bunnies, social but often fragile creatures, do not make good pets for small children. If you’re looking for a bunny as an Easter gift for a child, they urge you to make it a stuffed or chocolate bunny.

For more information, call Joyce or John Gedraitis with Bunny TNT at 316-683-1122 or visit
