My friends,
Wildflowers' 20th Annual Dog Show is this week, and you know how much I love that -- It's not only a birthday party for me, it is a chance to raise money for a cause that is very near and dear to my heart -- the Friends of Southern Ocean County Animal Shelter (FOSOCAS).

This year, this organization needs support more than ever, because economic hardship is making it difficult for some people to give their animals all the care they need. And the Friends have a program that makes a huge difference, the difference between life and death for these animals and their families.
I know that the Dog Show isn't everybody's thing, and I also know that many people aren't on the island right now. So we came up with an idea that would give everyone a chance to participate and help to make a difference for this worthy organization.

Below, you will see the list of local businesses that have provided donations to help us raise money for this wonderful program. We hope you'll check out the list and see if there is anything here that interests you. We've set a minimum bid for each item, but of course, there is no maximum bid. And all of the proceeds will go to FOSOCAS. (Also, these offers have no expiration date, so they can be used this year or next.)

If you'd like to participate, please just email me to let us know which items you would like to bid on and the highest amount you would like to bid. If you are the winning bidder, we will contact you via email. The auction will close on Firday, August 21st.

And if you would like to make a contribution outside this auction, please make out your check to FOSOCAS and mail it to me at Box 459, Barnegat Light, NJ 08006.

Thank you for being such a good friend of Wildflowers. Wherever you are, whatever this season is bringing you, I wish you well. Stay safe, be careful, enjoy.
