Trophy Sponsorships Now Available for MFGRC Specialty in Orlando

Hello Fellow MFGRC Members,

In 2021 the Officers and Board of Directors decided that our club would sponsor the specialty trophies in honor of the members of MFGRC who worked so hard and so long to help make the 2021 National Specialty such an overwhelming success.

Well, I am writing today to make the request for trophy sponsorships for our annual independent specialty held at the Orange County Convention Center in December.  The specialty will top off 3 days of all breed shows starting on Tues December 13. Our specialty will be held on Friday, December 16, 2022.  And is followed by the 2022 AKC National Championship sponsored by Royal Canin on Sat and Sun, Dec. 17 & 18, 2022.  We hope you will join us for one of the largest gatherings of golden retrievers in the US (other than National and Regional Specialties).

This year our top trophies are beautiful custom designed wood and resin charcuterie boards.  Please see the Trophy Spreadsheet for the remainder of the trophies that will be awarded.

Along with your sponsorship checks, please include the award you wish to sponsor and the verbiage you would like to have placed on the sponsorship board.  This board will be prominently displayed ringside at the specialty.  If you would like to support our trophies, but not sponsor an individual trophy, you may donate to the General Fund.  All additional donations will help to defray the cost or our specialty.

Please make checks payable to MFGRC and mail to Camille Nasca, 4008 Bradley Ave., Orlando, FL 32839.  If you have any questions please contact me at mischiefgolden@gmail.com.

As always, I, along with Show Chair Caroline Kendrick, appreciate your support of our annual specialty. Camille Nasca
