This year, we will be holding a silent auction to help raise money
for NEOESR. We all know what great work they do. And we all know how
expensive it is to care for our dogs. It will be held side-by-side with
their online auction. (www.neoesr.org).
We’ve had so many wonderful things donated, and have high hopes of
surprising NEOESR with a handsome check.
Because we will be in a forest preserve, no money can legally be
exchanged. So, if you are the winning bidder, you will take your treasure
home, along with an envelope addressed to me, and immediately send me a
check made payable to NEOESR. Your donation is tax deductable.
