We breezed right past our goal!! THANK YOU!!! BERNER LOVERS ARE THE MOST BESTEST!!!

Last year we raised $6,161.78 with our Berner-Garde Fundraiser and I was hoping we could raise $7,000 this year. People were very generous and we were able to raise $9,547.65 to support Berner-Garde. That amount includes the twelve pledges which I expect to receive in the next few days. THANK YOU ALL for your generous donations!

We had donations from 34 of the 50 states, 2 Canadian provinces, and 3 other countries.

Thanks again for making our 2012 Berner-Garde Fundraiser such a huge success!

I have a challenge from Nell Ward - she had sent a generous donation to the Berner-Garde Fundraiser and has asked me to use it to get more Berners entered into the Berner-Garde Database. SO......IF you enter a new person or a new Berner into the Berner-Garde Database, you will get 50 FREE Tickets for the Berner-Garde Gift Bonanza. Let me know that you have entered yourself and/or a Berner who isn't in the database and I will give you 50 tickets for each one you enter.
