WOW! A SMASHING SUCCESS!!! Thanks to the tremendous and generous efforts of Misha Dubbeld, who spear headed the whole thing, to all those who offered or were cajoled into donating such super items and to ALL the parents and riders who helped make it a go, plus the enthusiastic response of the would-be purchasers, we can proudly say that this first FEI Junior Silent Auction was a 'smashing success'!! As a result, we will be able to underwrite at least some of the hefty expense incurred by all of you in getting to the Competition. Details of the dispersements will be made shortly after the Competition.
To the first ever Silent Auction in support of a first ever Canadian FEI Junior Dressage Team! We hope that you will “bid, boogie and buy” with us as we prepare to go to the first ever North American Junior Dressage Championships at Paxton Farms in Batavia, Ohio on June 28, 2001.
Dare to dream of the future success of Dressage as you dig deep into your pockets and make bids on our fabulous Silent Auction items! And join the Juniors, their parents, the sponsors, donors, and the very exhausted organizers of this event, at 5 pm on Saturday, for a Cocktail Party to celebrate the Juniors and wish them good luck.
Throughout the show, The FEI Juniors will be selling $10 AND $20 “SURPRISE GIFT BAGS” in the barn/stall areas. We guarantee that the surprises will exceed your expectations and the dollars you pay for them. Please take a moment of your time to meet the Juniors – they are a terrific bunch of kids!
Most of all enjoy the show and Thank you all for your generous financial and moral support!
To all of our wonderful Donors and Sponsors Thank you!
