CHF Auction

The Collie Health Foundation’s largest fundraiser each year is its annual auctions. Held in a different city each year during the Collie Club of America’s National Specialty.  The CHF holds daily silent auctions and a live Night Auction and Dinner on Thursday. The silent auctions are typically held Wednesday through Saturday noonish, and the Night Auction and Dinner on Thursday night during the national specialty week.

The CHF relies on the generous donations of items given each year to auction off. The silent day auctions usually feature books and magazines, glassware, figurines, posters and pictures, clothing and a vast array of knickknacks. Items sell for anywhere between $1 and $100+.

The Annual Dinner and Night Auction is a fun evening of good food and lively bidding. The Night Auction features higher priced items between $50 and $2,000+.  At the Night Auction, jewelry, artwork, rare books, antiques and unique hand-crafted items can be found.

Please keep the CHF in mind if you have some “Collie Stuff” that you no longer want. We can turn your unwanted items into research dollars. For more information, please contact the 2019 CHF Evening Auction Manager Robette Johns at
