AASV Foundation Auction Making Waves!

Imagine downloading a pod cast off the AASV website and sitting back in your favorite recliner or curling up near a roaring fire and listening to Dr. Burkgren discuss a Big Hairy Audacious Goal on a Bose Wave ® Radio! It could happen at the 2008 AASV Foundation Auction in March.

Thanks to the great folks at Ralco Nutrition, Inc., the Foundation was able to secure a Bose Wave ® Radio for the upcoming auction during the 2008 AASV Annual Meeting in San Diego. Anyone who has ever listened to their favorite music on a Bose Wave ® Radio recognizes the unmatched performance of these technological marvels. It can be yours and you can help a great cause at the same time! And, speaking of unmatched performance, take a few minutes to look over the Ralco swine product line and thank the kind folks for their spectacular gift to support your Foundation.

Alright, so the family is starting to complain that your choice in listening material is "old school". Have we got the fix for you! Thanks to AASV members Larry Rueff, Dennis Villani and Matt Ackerman and the staff at Swine Vet Services you'll have the opportunity to bid on a set of Bose QuietComfort ® 2 Noise Cancelling Headphones to go with your Bose Wave ® Radio. Not only will these headphones maximize your listening pleasure they also drown out all that background nagging from the kids demanding the occasional hip hop or Justin Timberlake! So, for you music lovers out there who listen to both kinds of music (country and western) this is your chance to get your hands on an unbeatable combination!

Be sure to thank the folks at Swine Vet Services for their generous donation and consider following their lead. Remember, the Foundation needs your support. Please consider donating an item for the auction to help your Foundation meet its BHAG of raising $50,000 at the 2008 auction. Items and contributions need to be submitted by December 1, 2007. To donate, please visit the Foundation's auction website. You can contact any of the members of the auction committee or complete a donation form and send it in.
