Dear Basset Family,
By now you have probably noticed that ABC Basset Rescue, Tri-State Basset Hound Rescue and other rescues have canceled their fundraising events for Spring 2020.
Due to the COVID-199 virus we need to postpone our Spring Fling. We will hold the event Sunday, September 27th from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Reid Barn and call it "Spring into Fall". It will be the same wonderful event with the Basset Derby, silent auction, live auction and a wonderful Sunday dinner. Everyone will be home in time to get ready for work on Monday or for our Jewish Friends, the beginning of Yom Kippur.
It took some doing to find an intersection where our auctioneer and our venue would be available and that is the reason for the Sunday date. We needed a date far enough out so that the virus will very likely have dissipated. And of course, we were up against people’s previously scheduled weddings. We will be canceling Brews & Arroooos this year in August. This will not affect the Bash which will still be held in November.
We have created a new menu - much like an old-fashioned Sunday dinner and garden party. We will refund ticket money or roll the tickets over to the new event if anyone asks. Please contact Marci Thomas firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the meantime, our expenses as a rescue go on and we are continuing to take in basset hounds that need care. We are aware that this virus has caused economic and other hardships to our basset hound family, but we would be grateful to accept any donations you can make to help us through this period. The Spring Fling funds the majority of our costs as a rescue and since it is delayed that means the funds we earn from it will not be there for us until the fall. If you can help, please access our wish list and donate from $15 and up to help us pay for spays, neuters, vaccines and all the other things we need for the hounds at https://bhrgspringfling2018.ecwid.com.
We love you and promise an absolutely stellar event once we get past this crisis. We are a family and we will get through this together. We appreciate you more than you could ever know.
Spring Fling Coordinator and the other BHRG Trustees
