One LAST CHALLENGE for the 4th Annual Willem Wijnberg Cancer Fundraiser

"To tempt the last of the remaining "Procrastinators Extraordinaire," I have one more Challenge!

Vicky Whitney has made and donated four unique, really nice hand painted Berner Christmas Ornaments!!! No one else will have these Berner ornaments on their tree, so you will definitely want try to win this challenge. The FIRST FOUR DONORS who send a check for $100 or more AND who write "Ornament" under their signature line AND whose checks are dated on or after March 11th AND who send me a note telling me that the check/cheque is on it's way will win the four lovely special Berner Ornaments made by Vicky Whitney!!! Of course you will also want to tell me how to distribute your 50 Tickets (40 for $100 PLUS the 10 Challenge Tickets.)

HURRY....there isn't much time before the drawing. Of course I have a HUGE job ahead of me to record and distribute all of the tickets that people are generously making donations towards for our Cancer Fundraiser.


It's a GOOD thing!!!!

Thank you all....Berner People are the Greatest!!!

BERNER LOVERS ARE THE GREATEST!!!!

When I announced the 4th Annual Willem Wijnberg AKC CHF Cancer Fundraiser, I said that my goal was to raise $10,000 this year and another $10,000 next year to support the malignant histiocytosis and hemangiosarcoma research on Berners being done by Dr. Matthew Breen. After a slow start, Berner Lovers certainly donated generously and we raised........$20,423.29!!! This means that we have raised the money necessary to continue Matthew's study and next year, we will be able to raise money for another Berner cancer research project.

THANK YOU for giving so generously!!
