sending a personal letter is preferable, it’s costly.
Please excuse our more impersonal email and know that we
are spending your money wisely.
ILR Show Division is off and running (view the results
of the first two shows at
www.lamaregistry.com/ShowDivision/ShowDivision_ShowResults.aspx) ! In just three short months,
through the generous support of many of you, the ILR-SD
has raised 50% of its fundraising goal. As in any new
venture, initial start-up capital is needed and the Show
Division is no exception. No funds
will be taken from the Registry to support the Show
Division. It is of paramount importance that we
raise the balance of our financial goal in a timely
manner so that the Show Division continues its growth.
It is projected that after the initial start-up phase,
the Show Division will be self-supporting through member
and show fees.
ILR-SD Online Auction, coming soon, will
offer you the opportunity to bid on (and win!) some
awfully fun, exciting and useful items and services. All
proceeds go to the Show Division. There are already a
variety of items ranging from musical instruments to
jewelry, rovings, rugs, blankets, gift certificates and
artistic wood-working. Services include show packets, a
full season program of fly control, a farm profile in a
major industry publication, and a half-page color ad in
another magazine. These are just some of the listings
you’ll find in the first auction! In order to continue
bringing the new and unusual to you, we need your
help. Please take some time to find that one (or
more) great item or service that you can donate to aid
in the cause. It doesn’t need to be llama-oriented;
remember, if you would bid on something, so would
someone else! It is the goal of the ILR-SD Finance
Committee to keep the auction as an on-going event until
the goal is met and it can only be done with the
continued excellent support of the llama community.
If you have any questions regarding the auction or
to donate items, please contact: Barb Baker at
you haven’t got that perfect item for the auction? Your
cash donations will always be welcome! You
can donate easily through the ILR website or by sending
a check, marked as “Show Division Donation” to the ILR
office. No matter how you choose to donate, your
support is greatly appreciated and we thank-you
in advance for that support !
