The focus for the next several months is going to be trying to secure items
Furry Friends volunteers are in the planning stage for the Fall auction. They are planning the next in person auction, which will have a rock and roll theme called ‘HISS’ and will be held at the Heathman Lodge in Vancouver on Sat., Sept. 16.
The focus for the next several months is going to be trying to secure items. It is never too early to start planning for this event. It takes all year to accumulate items and to work out the details.
Furry Friends would like your help in either providing auction items or soliciting business for items. The event organizers are especially looking for large ticket items such as trips, vacation places, experiences and expensive items. They can always use more items that would appeal to men such as hunting, fishing, BBQ, camping, sports memorabilia, smart TVs, car items and services, tools and electronics.
Volunteers ask that donations be valued at $40 or more and they need to be received by Aug. 1. Event organizers are trying to focus on quality items, which do not have to be cat themed. Auction guests have many interests in addition to cats.
Furry Friends volunteers have a wishlist on Amazon of items they are hoping to acquire for the upcoming auction. They ask that those interested take a look and see if there is anything they would like to donate to the auction. All funds made at the auction go to the care and housing of the cats.
