The 2018 Specialty will be here before we know it, we're getting amazing donations from our Berner family, and Regional clubs for the BMDCA Health Auction. The Auction is Thursday May 3rd 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!

We have an extraordinary array of new and vintage Berner items, artwork and treasures that you won't find elsewhere. The silent auction items will be available for bidding all day on Thursday, May 3rd in the ballroom where the auction is being held. The live auction items will also be on display. The silent auction opens at 9am and closes at 7pm followed by the live auction which begins at 7:30pm.

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 Susan K. Morrill at smchdogs@gmail.com for more information.

If you wish to donate items, download the donation form (or we will send it you) and submit to Susan K. Morrill at PO Box 171, Cataumet, MA 02534 or email at smchdogs@gmail.com

Once the form has been received, an auction item number will be assigned by Susan. Please ship your donation, marked with that auction #, to:
                Susan K. Morrill
                PO Box 171
                Cataumet, MA 02534

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!
