It’s time for the Foundation’s annual dinner and live auction! Again this year, to encourage more to attend our educational programing and much like we did in Ft Wayne, we are holding the price of our dinner to $30. We are pleased to present a buffet dinner. Following our speaker and a short presentation, there will be dinner and on to one of the best live auctions CHF has had in years.

Make it a point to attend a fun-filled informative evening with a chance to buy that one-of-a-kind prized piece of Collie memorabilia or artwork. We never know who has more fun, our auctioneers, our “Vanna’s” or the audience.

This year we are pleased to have the renowned researcher, Dr. Gustavo Aguirre, VMD, PHD,(hc), to present on CEA clinical disease and problems with consistent diagnoses as well as progress in the molecular studies leading to the coloboma risk factor/gene identification.

Dr. Aguirre will be available for breeders and owners to talk to all day on Thursday.
