The 2017 Specialty will be here before we know it, and we're getting amazing donations from our Berner family, and Regional clubs for the BMDCA Health Auction. The Auction is Thursday, April 27th and is THE time to support future health research and initiatives for our beloved Berners. A better quality of life and longevity is the goal we all want, and this is the largest event of the year, to support those endeavors!
                                                                                                                                                                                Click HERE for more info on the Golden Ticket...
We have a extraordinary array of new and vintage Berner items, artwork and treasures that you won't find elsewhere. We will have a silent auction at 6 PM and a live auction at 7:30 PM. Come join us and bring your friends — it's a great time, and will make such a difference for our dogs.

The evening starts with time to view the items, nibbles and no host bar. Remember donations are TAX DEDUCTIBLE. Cash donations are greatly appreciated as well — it costs $$ to make this a memorable, enjoyable event for you! Donations for the BMDCA Health Auction are handled by the Berner-Garde Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law. The net proceeds from the BMDCA Health Auction, including cash donations, benefit both Berner-Garde and the BMDCA Health Fund as provided in the Fiscal Sponsorship agreement between the two organizations. Thanks to all that have donated already and those who have not, please contact Julie Jackson at RRBERNESE@gmail.com or 206-930-3290 for more information. If you wish to donate items, please use this donation form and send back to Julie Jackson, 9706 Taylor St. E., Edgewood, WA 98371, or email. Once the form has been received, an auction item number will be assigned by Julie. Please ship your donation, marked with that auction #, to:
                Anne Summers
                16021 So. Union Mills Rd
                Mulino, OR 97042

Cash may be directly donated to the BMDCA Health Auction as well.

In the mutual love and respect for our Bernese Mountain Dogs, TOGETHER we can make a difference!
