Virtual Hound Show
(IVHS) ONLINE SILENT AUCTION

WE ARE FACED WITH UNPRECEDENTED GLOBAL CHALLENGES THE LIKES OF WHICH WE HAVE NOT SEEN IN LIVING MEMORY.

WHILE TIMES ARE CHALLENGING FOR INDIVIDUAL HUNTS, WORKING TOGETHER AS AN INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY, WE CAN ACHIEVE FAR MORE!

Had the Covid-19 emergency not taken place, the Summer months - in the Northern Hemisphere, anyway - would be full of shows and hunt events, many of which would be critical for fundraising.

All hunts competing in the virtual hound show are invited to enter a single lot for the silent auction. Lots can range from the glamorous to the practical with proceeds raised going directly to support the donating hunt or its nominated charity.

Together we can harness the power of crowd marketing with each hunt reaching beyond their own community; nationally and internationally, potentially making far more money for their item. The auction will be open online for five weeks to receive bids. We will be using a system successfully used by a number of UK hunts for their own online auctions.

May I encourage you to think who amongst your supporters might have that unique item which will enable your hunt to maximize this unique fundraising opportunity?
