Annual Online Auction to Benefit HRI

Hi

I'm not sure if it's known on the Forum that I'm again running the annual online auction - here's the announcement! http://www.havaneseforum.com/images/...ilies/whoo.gif

Havanese lovers everywhere! I'm so happy and excited to announce the 10th anniversary of our annual Fall event!! Our online auction to benefit Havanese Rescue Inc will begin Saturday, October 30th and end Saturday, November 6th.

To donate an item(s), just send a description and picture (or link to an online pic) to me. Over the years, we have featured everything from gift cards, dog toys, totes and treats, dog carriages, clothing, accessories and jewelry (for people & pets), artwork, pottery, books and music, to children's toys and games, antiques, holiday decorations, handbags, and more. The item doesn't have to be Havanese or dog related. You are limited only by your imagination and the ability to pack up and mail the item to the winner when the auction ends. "Gently used" items are welcome; when you send the info to me, just mention that the item has been used.

The sooner you send the info to me the better as it takes time to get the pics organized, edited and posted on the auction site. If you delay and are "memory-challenged" like me, you may forget. I'd never turn away a donation but it does take time away from accepting bids and updating the website if I stop to add new items once the auction is running (ahem....you know who you are LOL).

Here is the link http://web.me.com/cascino/Auction_2010/Home.html. I've listed some FAQs for those Hav lovers who have never participated in our event, and I'll post the donations as they come in. As always, if you have any questions, please don't be afraid to ask.

If you are unable to donate or bid this year, remember that we rely solely on word of mouth and the Havanese lists and newsletters to announce this event, so anything you can do to spread the word is equally important and much appreciated. Thanks!!

Thanks so much! I'm on vacation this coming week and will be home most of the days and able to work on the website, so if anyone has items ready for posting, this week would be a good time to send them.

Oh, I just remembered this and will post it on the Hav list later, but can I ask that when you send a donation, you include your surname in your email (if it's not part of your email address). I know a lot of folks by their screen names and "mommy names", but have a hard time remembering everyone's last names. Let's face it, sometimes I have a hard time remembering my own.LOL

Ahhhaa! My toys I do have a couple of collars and another item I'm donating, I just need to get the photos..

Might I add, the flying monkey is a huge hit, and Gucci doesn't know whether to chase the weasel or be scared of it..it is HILARIOUS...I laugh so hard it hurts when this thing runs, I will have to get it on video..

(By the way, the donated ones are new, unused....I"m keeping ours )

The Auction is so much fun! Last year I got cool socks and a really neat washed wool purse.

Kara, Tucker says he likes the toys you are donating, they look like fun!
