What does the Performance Fund do? It’s a way for everyone to contribute toward the expenses of putting on all five performance events - Rally, Obedience, Agility, Tracking and the Road Trial. These expenses include judge related costs, venue rental, and equipment rental. The Performance Fund does not cover the cost of trophies for these events which continue to be handled by specific Trophy Donations. Without the Performance Fund, these events which showcase the Dalmatian’s versatility as a breed, would not be possible at the National. Your donation to the Performance Fund will be acknowledged in the catalog list of sponsors and you also may receive a Performance T-shirt and/or an original limited edition print. These prints will be signed and numbered by the artist. All T-Shirts and prints will be mailed. It’s easy to make your donation online. Go to http://www.dcanational.com/2011/orderforms.html, look for Performance Fund and select one of the following:
• Performance Fund donation of $35 and receive the Performance T-Shirt. • Performance Fund donation of $55 and receive the original limited edition print. • Performance Fund donation of $75 and receive both the t-shirt and print.
Only contributions made by April 1, 2011 are eligible to receive the t-shirts and prints. However, you can still continue to donate to the Performance Fund after that date. Please note that there is an additional $5.00 charge for size 3X T-Shirts.
