Be on the Lookout

We want to give a huge thank you to our wonderful VGSR volunteers and friends who pounded the pavement for donors and sponsors for last year's tournament and auction. It’s that time again. October is not far away. The dogs need you to bring in those great items so that this year’s auction can be bigger and better!

Items do NOT have to be dog or golf related. Anything with appeal which you think will bring in the BIDS is much appreciated!! If you like the item, chances are someone else will, also.

We would like to expand our Silent Auction, this year, to include more MUST BUY items which will not only bring $$ to help our dogs but will keep people coming back to VGSR events. The success of our auction depends on each of you.

Please bring in some great items for the upcoming auction, such as:
• Vacation or Travel Related Items (e.g., time share, hotel, resorts, your vacation home, airline tickets, day trips, or other);
• Fine Art and Collectibles;
• Gourmet Food Baskets and/or Catered Meals;
• Fine Wines and other Beverages (including wine tastings)
• Services (Professional Services; Catering; Photography; Pet related – including but not limited to pet sitting, walking, training, grooming);
• Classes (including but not limited to golf, cooking/baking, crafts, dance);
• Golf and Ski Items;
• Spa and Shopping Gift Certificates;
• Restaurant Gift Certificates;
• Long Term Goods Deliveries (e.g., weekly pizza delivery or flowers delivered from a local florist);
• Sunset or Afternoon cruises with appetizers;
• Jewelry (Silver, Gold, Gemstone, Handcrafted, Designer); and
• Themed Baskets.
Remember the auction, as you go shopping, to local fairs, take day trips or even go on vacation. Ask the various business owners if they would like to contribute an item or two to help our dogs. Use your contacts to help our dogs. Perhaps you are a craftsman or artist or have a friend or relative who is? What better way to share your talent and help our dogs???
We are getting off to a slow start - so the dogs really need each and every one of you to start thinking VGSR AUCTION.
Don’t leave it up to someone else!

This is YOUR opportunity to help VGSR and our dogs.

It’s all about the DOGS!!
