What a great way to have fun and raise money for the Charitable Trust. During the week Daily Silent Auctions are held ringside at the Charitable Trust tables. Each day new items are up for auction; the auction ends each day approximately 10 minutes after judging has concluded. The next day it starts again with new auction items. While everyone who has previously attended our Cavlaier National Specialty has come to expect our Daily Silent Auctions, they are in truth waiting for the auctions that are conducted the night of the Banquet. The saying comes to mind "you ain't seen nothing yet" when describing the items that are up for auction that evening.
There are typically 2 different Silent Auctions that start when cocktails are served and end sometime after dinner; each Silent Auction ends at a different time in order that the auction workers have a chance of starting on the necessary paperwork for check out. If you want to bid, you must register and receive a 'Bidding Number' in order to take part in the fun. It isn't until after dinner when all of the announcements and awards are complete that the real fun begins; our Live Auction. For a number of years our guest auctioneer has been David Frei, the well known voice of the Westminster Kennel Club's live televised group and Best in Show judging; we are so fortunate to have David as a friend. David knows just how to get things rolling and people bidding higher and higher all for the good of the Charitable Trust.
