|Get ready for the Summer 2013 BIA starting Sunday, 8:00 PM, EST, 08/04/2013!|
Its time again for the next Biggy Iggy Auction! Starting August 4, 2013 at 8 EST!!!
EVERY BID REALLY COUNTS THIS YEAR
This year we have some exciting news to add to the annual Biggy Iggy Auction - an anonymous friend of the Italian Greyhound community has announced that they will donate $2 for every bid you make, up to a total amount of $2,000 for the 8 week duration of the auction! By simply bidding, even if you do not win the item, you are adding $2 to the funds raised! That is for every bid, whether it is for a new item, or you are raising a bid on one that you have already bid on!
Please support IGRF and the Health Fund though the Biggy Iggy Auction - every single bid counts, now more than ever. This is a wonderful opportunity to magnify your support of this important fundraiser. You will be making such a positive difference in the life of a dog. IGRF helped over 1,000 dogs in 2012 alone. Please also support the Italian Greyhound Health Foundation. That Foundation is making a positive difference every day in the future health of every Italian Greyhound.
Think of a day when every IG is in a loving home, well cared for and cherished. This is what the IGRF is working towards. Think of a day when IGs no longer suffer from epilepsy, PRA, autoimmune diseases, hemangiosarcoma, dental disease or any of the other health problems of our breed. That's what the Health Foundation was created to do, to fund the research and provide the education to make these conditions part of our history but not our future.
So let's all have some fun bidding on the wonderful exciting items that you will be seeing starting the first week of August 4, 2013, with the added bonus of knowing that by simply clicking on an item to bid you will be helping to raise funds.
Thank you to everyone for considering helping our beloved breed through this annual fundraiser!
2013 All New Raffle Item - Italian Greyhound Rescue Foundation Tree Project
This decorated tree project was inspired by the work my husband does to help a local organization. His organization helps to find other organizations who in turn help children, domestic abuse,
etc. There biggest annual fundraise in theri Festival of Trees, which is a decorate tree raffle and auction. I thought why not do this to help the organization I am most passionate about,
Italian Greyhound Rescue Foundation, Inc. The concept was to ask IG lovers to make donate an ornament, handmade or store bought, then a tree would be decorated with the collection. One name
will be drawn among all who donate, and the tree plus ornament collection will be shipped to them. -
