GRFA will allow the purchase of a signed Rodrigue Blue Dog silkscreen print of your choice for $500. In the past two years, over 600 charity organizations have participated and raised nearly $1.5 million dollars at their charity auctions.

As part of this unique program, if the print you purchase does not provide the organization with funds exceeding the original $500 investment, GRFA will accept the print's return and refund the $500.
