CHF AUCTIONS 2018-03-11T00:59:16+00:00

The Collie Health Foundation’s largest fundraiser each year is its annual auctions. Held in a different city each year during the Collie Club of America’s National Specialty, the CHF holds daily silent auctions and a live Night Auction and Dinner. The silent auctions are typically held Wednesday though Saturday mornings and the Night Auction and Dinner on Thursday night during the national specialty week.

The CHF relies on the generous donations of items given each year to auction off. The silent day auctions usually feature books and magazines, glassware, figurines, posters and pictures, clothing and a vast array of knickknacks. Items sell for anywhere between $1 and $50.

The Annual Night Auction and Dinner is a fun evening of good food and lively bidding. The Night Auction features higher priced items between $50 and $2,000. At the Night Auction, jewelry, artwork, rare books, antiques and unique hand-crafted items can be found.

Please keep the CHF in mind if you have some “Collie Stuff” that you no longer want. We can turn your unwanted items into research dollars. For more information, please contact the CHF Evening Auction Manager Laura LaBounty at

Collie Health Foundation

On December 17, 2002 the organization changed it’s name from the Collie Club of America Foundation to the Collie Health Foundation in order to give the Foundation a unique identity separate from the Collie Club of America and more clearly represent our mission.

Collie Health Foundation Logo

Our new logo was generously donated by Diana Hiesilieu. There is a story behind this new logo, a story about a Collie we bred and had the extreme privilege of knowing – A Collie by the name of Noah…Read More!
