NEW CHALLENGES!

1) Marie DiSante has made a very generous donation to the fundraiser and has made a challenge with her tickets. Any Berner Lover who makes a donation of $25 or more will get double tickets!! This is a great chance to support Berners who need help and to get double tickets at the same time. Please send in your donations!

2) We have a "Matching Grant" of $1,000 from Steve Keech and AmTote. Any donations dated between Nov. 30th and Dec. 3rd will be matched up to a total of $1,000! I'm sure we will get more than $1,000 during that time.

CALIFORNIA OLD GOLD COUNTRY GETAWAY~! A generous Berner Lover has offered a wonderful prize for our 2015 BARC Fundraiser - the use of her “Guesthouse” about nine miles outside of Nevada City, CA for Monday to Friday (but not on the weekend). The property is on a couple of forested acres with great hiking, biking, and resting and just an hour drive from Tahoe, Roseville or Sacramento. The Guesthouse sleeps two on a pull out couch in the living room and two on a queen in the Loft. It has a full bathroom and kitchen. There is a deck and a garage, plus the added bonus of the company of two loving Bernese in the main house. You will enjoy the lovely city of Nevada City and Grass Valley with historic downtowns and many artists and musicians around the Yuba River area. The winner and the owner will work out the details of the Getaway.
