2020 DCA National Fundraiser

Decorated Dalmatians II

We are excited to let you know that, thanks to the initiative of Kathy Duran and the generosity of Mark and Ginger Iwaoka, Decorated Dals II will be the DCAF fundraiser for DCA 2020! We are limiting the figurines to 40 and are now accepting artist applications!  Email me if you are interested.  If we receive more than 40 artist applicants, we will appoint a team of DCA artists to select the finalists.  Please let us know by June 1 if you want to do one!

All figurines must be completed with photo submitted by April 1, 2020 so that we have an opportunity to post photos for remote bids one month before the start of DCA 2020.

The blank figurines will be provided by DCAF through the generosity of Mark and Ginger.  Safe delivery of the completed figurines to DCA 2020 in Asheville, NC is the responsibility of the artist.

They’re Back! Decorated Dals II – The 2020 annual Dalmatian Club of America Foundation Fundraiser Don't miss your chance to own one or more of the 50 unique Decorated Dals designed by our own Dalmatian enthusiast artists OR one of the 15 handmade quilted wall hangings by Kimberley Hess commemorating some of the original Decorated Dals from 2011. All proceeds support DCAF's mission of advancing the health and quality of life for Dalmatians and all dogs through supported research and education. Figurines are ceramic and approximately 6 3/4” (tall) x 6” (long). Quilted wall hangings vary in size but range from 24” squares to 36” squares. Figurines and wall hangings will be added to the auction as they are completed so check back often to see the latest. Our goal is to have all of them by April 1. To bid remotely, please place your bid in the comment section below each item in the album on the DCAF page. You MUST make your bid on the original post located on the DCAF page to be considered. If you have not already "liked" the DCAF page you will need to do so in order to complete your bid. No bids placed on shared posts will be considered eligible. Online (remote) bids will be accepted until noon CDT Friday, July 3. You may continue to raise your remote bid until that time. During the live auction on Friday, July 10, the highest online bid will be listed with each item on display at the Dalmatian Club of America 2020 Top Twenty event, and those in attendance will have the opportunity to raise the bid, but to win, in person bidders must increase the remote bid by at least $10 or 10% - whichever is greater. Therefore, if you are not attending, be aggressive in your bids for the items you really want! If your remote bid wins (one hour after Top Twenty), your item can be shipped directly to you at your expense at an estimated cost of $25/US or $67/International per figurine. PayPal payments will be accepted for online winning bids. DCAF is a 501(c)3 organization.
