2014 Silent Auction Procurement: Please Support Our Junior Riders

To kick off the 2014 show season, the Washington State Hunter Jumper Association will be hosting the annual silent auction during our Spring National Show Series in Monroe, WA, held April 2nd through 20th.

As in past years, all proceeds from the silent auction will go to the 2014 WSHJA Junior/Amateur Scholarship Fund. The importance of this fund to our statewide riders is well served, so we encourage you to make your donations, either through sponsorships or a physical item.

In an effort to ensure the responsibility for fund raising is shared equally, we are asking that each barn be responsible for at least 2 items. Big or small, the possibilities are endless.

And if you feel you don't have the time simply call Olson's Tack, 425-454-9453, and they will be happy to get the job done for you.

Please fill out the provided procurement form and return it with your item when ready:

Thank you!

It’s that time of year again! The rain is falling, the show season is over and points have been accumulated. That can mean only one thing; the WSHJA Annual Awards Banquet is right around the corner. And our request for silent auction donations goes out to you.

The Silent Auction is one of the principal fund raising events for the year. 100% of the proceeds go to the WSHJA Scholarship Fund--supporting our member riders and their horses represent Washington at out-of-state regional and national finals. It also supports educational scholarship opportunities to our volunteer community.

Please show your support by donating auction items. We are counting on each barn donating 3 auction items--perennial favorites are:

  • Gift baskets filled with useful horsey stuff
  • Unique custom made items such as groom boxes, jumps, mounting blocks...
  • Anything clothing for horse, hound, or human.
  • Professional Services such as photography, massage, braiding....
  • Experiences including weekend getaways, tee times, unique dinners, riding clinics,  and tickets to sporting or theater events.

We kindly ask that all donations be auction ready. Please include the procurement form with each donation.

Contact Patricia Domine, WSHJA's Auction Chair, at p_domine@hotmail.com or at 425-369-1134 with any questions and to confirm your donation.

WSHJA has always been blessed with a generous community. We thank you in advance for your contribution again this year.
