Our Grand Winner
In Category 4


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



This year we held a photo contest on the Berner-l, an idea spawned by Bobbie Abern, from Montana.

There were four categories: Fun Pictures, Berner Studies, Berners & Kids and a fourth separate category for Professionals.

Our goal was to raise $500 with the two grand prize winners designating which funds would receive half of the money raised.

Photos were accepted during the month of April with an entry fee of $3 each or 2 for $5 for each category. Jean Cheesman, from the U.K., did a huge amount of work creating and keeping up the website for this fundraiser! Voting was done on line and was free (one vote per person for each category) from May 5 through 31.

The winners of the categories were announced in early June:

Fun Pictures - "Am I cute or what?" - by Carolyn McQuillen
Berner Studies - "Sunset" - by Rachel Smith
Berners and Kids ' "Complete Joy" - by Laura Lopez-Mendez
Professional - "Concentration" - by Beth Schmoyer

The grand prize winners and which funds they designated their prizes to go to are:

Rachel Smith - AKC CHF Berner Lovers' Donor Advised Fund
Beth Schmoyer - BEHAF

All four winners received a basket of candy, compliments of Bobbie Abern and the two grand prize winners won an additional special super prize!

The grand total raised by this fun fundraiser was $878!

Thank you to everyone who entered photos in the contest and to those who voted on line for their favorite photos in each category. Your support of our fundraisers benefits Berners in so many ways!
