Seeking donations for HRI

This was just posted to some of the e-mail lists, so I'm copying it here. Contact information is available at the bottom of the message.

Good Afternoon.......


A few weeks ago, I wrote to all of you announcing that I have the pleasure of being the Chairman for the Havanese Rescue Inc. Reception for "HEROES" once again this year during NATIONALS. Our Reception is going to be held on Thursday evening, August 20, 2009 at 6:30 p.m. Please mark your calendars as a "must attend" activity during your busy week. Stop by for a refreshment after a long day, relax and have some fun!


As part of this Reception we will have a Silent Auction/Raffle. Last year we had a collection of fabulous and fun items ..........something for everyone to either bid on
or "take a chance". Our line-up of items so far for this year is outstanding........BUT we are still in need of additional donations.

Each little guy that HRI takes into "RESCUE" is costing approximately $775.00. this year.


I am asking for anyone who wishes to donate an item for this "fun-raising" endeavor please contact me privately CME3320(at)AOL(dot)COM and let me know what you would like to contribute. No item would be too big or too small or too expensive or not expensive enough......we will welcome every item with open arms!

Our Board of Directors and volunteers work 24/7 tirelessly for these sweet little dogs that are in various stages of need. PLEASE, We need your help...............


Respectfully resubmitted,
Charlene Edwards
CSTAHAVANESE.COM

PLEASE FORWARD AND CROSSPOST TO ALL LISTS OR ANYONE YOU FEEL MAY BE INTERESTED ...............
Charlene's email address is CME3320 (at) aol (dot) com Please convert it to @ and . and remove the spaces.

Can someone give me a general idea of what "items", i.e., new items, gently used items, no longer use items (shampoos, etc.)

Kimberly-Only dog related items? Can you tell us new people what things have been auctioned in the past that were successful?

There was a huge variety at the HRI Auction. I do believe all of it was new or like new, but there were a few non-dog related items too.

I hope some of the other attendees can remember some of the specific items there, but I know I put tickets in a lot of the bags and won one thing - a set of books I wanted. The books were all dog related.

I remember a dog carrier, a really nice Havanese paperweight, a special food & water bowl (specific high end name that I can't think of right now) and a lot of other items.

There were pictures that was done of Havanese on glass-there was dog beds-crate pads-purses-and that wonderful jacket that was a real show stopper-books-necklaces-dog related items and stuff for people.

Mr Roman is donating a basket of toys & treats this year. And Miss Paige & Ms Frannie have their donation item ready to go.

But we need lots of things to make this a great auction-the dogs are coming in so fast and needing so much that this auction will help HRI help the dogs. And don't forget the quilts.

Come to the Reception-have a wonderful time-eat-drink (and spend money on the great items).

I'll try to make something. If it turns out right I'll donate it. If not I'll fade back into the woodwork. How soon would it have to be ready?

It just needs to be done and at Nationals in August. If you are interested I can get the e-mail address for you of the person that is keeping track of the donations.
