Friday, Saturday, and Sunday
This year, as in the past, Groom and Kennel Expo exhibitors and faithful attendees donate products to be silent-auctioned during the weekend. New products will be available for bidding each day! Every year, this silent auction raises thousands of dollars at Barkleigh shows. All proceeds go to Gifts of Love International.
Gifts of Love International is an organization founded by Don Kassebaum, a former pet care industry shampoo manufacturer. Through the organization, Don and his wife, Barb, provide aid around the world to help groups and individuals rise out of poverty. One of their major projects is an orphanage in Guatemala, which currently houses 20 children and continues to grow.
A fast-paced auction will be held to sell all unclaimed Silent Auction items and products donated from booths at the show close.
