In conjunction with the Lower Mainland Dog Show, held last week in Abbotsford, breeder Joanne Helm with some assistance from AireCanada Treasurer Jim, organized a dinner for Airedale lovers. In attendance were breeders, AireCanada rescue workers and people who simply love Airedales. Everyone had a wonderful time as you can see from the photos below!
A highlight of the evening was a draw for a framed print, “Dale Cottage,” by well-known Airedale artist, Ann Curran.
As well, a silent auction was held with many excellent treasures available for bidders. Here are some of the items that lucky participants could choose for their bids:
Total proceeds donated to AireCanada through the raffle and silent auction were a whopping $685! This sum will go a long way towards helping rescued Airedale Terriers not only in BC but across Canada. Many, many thanks to those who provided items to be raffled or auctioned as well as to all those in attendance who bid so generously. We hope that AireDinners like this one will become a tradition here in BC each fall when the annual dog show is held. It was way too much fun not to repeat. See you next October!
