2023 Auction Donation Form
The 2023 Specialty week will be here before we know it, and with all the committees working hard to make the entire event a success, including the Auction committee, we need your help. We want this Auction to be a lively and entertaining night, but we need your support and help to make this happen. We are in need of donations from any and all members, friends, and fanciers of Spinoni to be auctioned off at the Specialty. Items do not need to be Spinone themed, although these items are always popular and tend to bring in the highest bids.
Other well received items are unusual or unique art pieces. Or perhaps you know someone who does quilting, embroidery, painting, metal work? A donation can result in future sales for them! Do you do business with someone who could donate an item? State themed baskets are always a fun idea, so consider getting together with others from your area and putting together a basket of local and regional goodies. Not sure what to get – gift certificates to national chain stores, restaurants or popular online stores make it possible for the winner to select what they need or want. The possibilities are endless.
Large items will be auctioned individually, either in our live auction or as part of the silent auction. Smaller items are welcomed too! They may be paired with other similar items to make up a themed basket or used in a bag raffle.
As you may know, proceeds from the live and silent auction are split 50/50 between SCOA and SROA. The auction is the primary fundraising event for SCOA, providing support for the National, and an important fundraiser for Rescue. We ask for support from all Spinone fanciers, friends, families, and businesses. We have a great auctioneer lined up who will make this a fun and lively auction, but he can’t do it without your donations!
One note for prospective bidders: Don’t forget your checkbook! Cash is always welcome as an acceptable payment, and we happily accept credit cards!
All auction items can either be brought with you, shipped ahead of time to Dee Hasley or shipped to the hotel at the addresses below:

Make sure you fill out an Auction Donation form and forward the form, along with a picture and a 2 sentence description to: Laura Penfold @ [email protected]. If you are donating a basket, please list the items in the basket to the extent possible, so that we can put the list with your donation. Doing so will help people know exactly what they are bidding on. Laura Penfold can answer any questions you may have regarding the auction.
Feel free to email or call her at [email protected] or (716) 640-6843.
Thank you for your generosity and help in making this a great auction!
Please join us for our “Themed Basket” raffle at the 2023 SCOA National Specialty. We are asking members to put together a basket with items of any kind that represent a specific theme (such as “wine & cheese”, “bloody Mary”, “coffees and teas” – I think you get the picture). If you want to put together a basket from your state, then the “theme” would be “California” or “Texas”. Raffle tickets will be sold during the week, and the baskets will be raffled off on Thursday, May 25, 2023 at the auction! If you would like to join with other members in your area to put together a basket, but do not know who to contact in your area, log into the members only section of the website where you will find a current list of members sorted by zip code. If you have any questions about anything auction related, please feel free to contact Laura Penfold at [email protected] or 716-640-6843.
