Tickets for an evening of wine, fine food and your chance to bid on this and other artworks (more of which we will be showcasing this week) are just $40, and the proceeds go to help The Mohawk & Hudson River Humane Society in their efforts to save the lives of homeless, abused and abandoned pets in the Capital Region.
