ATTENTION all Irish Wolfhound lovers and coffee drinkers!
As most of you are aware the IWCC BOD has agreed to start a fundraising committee to help with the costs of the National Specialties. Our hope is that as a club nationally we can come together to do this and help to ease the pressure on the show committee. Hosting a National Specialty is a great pleasure but also a ton of work.
Now what we need are ....... members who are willing to help sell coffee!
The great thing about this fundraiser is we can sell coffee to anyone, Irish Wolfhound lovers and regular coffee lovers. I am sure we all know a coffee lover or two (or more) would appreciate some good quality, organic coffee.
I will help organize this fundraiser but I need volunteers from all corners of our country to help. Let’s make this first year of fundraising as a club for our National Specialty a success and set the bar high!
If anyone is interested please contact me through email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or text me (604-644-1075) by May 28th.
*****Also I am trying to find event(s) over the summer for people who want to purchase coffee but don't want to sell it, to pick up their orders. The only way this will work is if we can ship groups of purchases to central locations. Is there a show, a coursing event, or even non dog event that would work? Or are there some of you who are fairly central who would be willing to have the coffee shipped to your place for people to pick up? Any suggestions? *****
We are proud to announce that the FIWC was able to publish the third edition of the book ‘The Irish Wolfhound Odyssey’ by Lois Thomasson.
