The Spinone Club of America and Spinone Rescue of America needs your help to make the 2019 Auction a huge success!
The 2019 Specialty week will be here before we know it. All the committees are working hard to make the entire event a success, including the Auction committee. We are hoping for a lively and entertaining Auction night, and 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. 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. Other well received items are unusual or unique art pieces – 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? The possibilities are endles.
Large items will be auctioned individually, either in the outcry auction or in the silent auction. Smaller items are welcomed too! They may be paired with other like items to make up a themed basket, or used in a bag raffle.
If you want your donation to go specifically to Spinone Rescue please clearly mark that. Please clearly mark your donation “SCOA Auction” or “SROA Auction”. As you may know, the auction is the primary fundraising event in support of the National, and also an important fundraiser for Rescue. We ask for support for both organizations from all Spinone fanciers, friends, families, and businesses. We have great auctioneers lined up who will make this a fun and lively auction, but they can’t do it without your donations!
One note for prospective bidders: If you plan to pay by check, please remember to bring at least 2 checks when you attend the auction because payments to SCOA and SROA must be made separately, as per the IRS. Cash is acceptable payment, and we happily accept credit cards!
All auction items should be shipped to Susie Pool at 11448 W. Roxbury Ave, Littleton Colorado, 80127, before May 20, or can be brought with you to the Specialty. Please clearly mark the box containing the item(s) with SCOA or SROA Auction. If you are donating for both, please mark the individual items. Please fill out an Auction Donation form and forward it to Susie (firstname.lastname@example.org), Sue McGregor (email@example.com) or Sue Acquistapace (firstname.lastname@example.org), letting us know if you will be sending or bringing your item(s). Susie Pool can also help answer any questions you may have regarding the auction. Feel free to phone her at 303 981 4174.
Thank you in advance for your help!
