It’s time again for the Foundation’s annual dinner and live auction. This year, in order to encourage more people to attend our educational programming, we are holding the price of our dinner to $25. We are pleased to have a buffet dinner. 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 “Vannas”, or the audience! We promise if you come once, you’ll join us again and again.
