President Reception

Friday, October 17, 2014

Kansas City, MO.

 

Thanks to ALL OF YOU who continually support the AAVLD Foundation Auction and make it a huge success each year. This year the auction will again be one of the highlights of the annual AAVLD meeting.  Enjoy the fun of a real auction with professional auctioneers.

 

The mission of the AAVLD Foundation:

·   Recruit future veterinary diagnosticians

·   Educate and retain the next generation of veterinary diagnosticians

·   Reward excellence in veterinary diagnostic medicine

Please support the AAVLD Foundation by donating an item(s) from your laboratory.

 

Foundation accomplishments:

 

A primary focus of the Foundation in recent years has been to provide travel funding to increase the number of students (DVM and post-DVM graduate students), as well as laboratory technicians that attend and make presentations at our annual meeting as a way to increase long term involvement with AAVLD.

 

2014 Highlights

·   AAVLD increased the number of $1,500 travel awards in 2014 from twelve to eighteen. New this year is a travel award focused on laboratory technicians, which was incredibly well received. In 2014 AAVLD awarded 12 graduate student trainee travel awards (10 different institutions), and 6 laboratory staff travel awards (6 different institutions). 

·   CPCVM total funding has increased 50% again (from $4,000 to $6,000) to increase number of DVM students attending the meeting.

Item:

"Mini Wonky" Potbelly jewelry box

 

 Description:

This “Mini Wonky” Potbelly jewelry box was designed and built from a solid block of hardwood by Wood Artist Paul Szewc of Guelph, Ontario, Canada.  We glued 2 blocks together to create one large enough.

Each block is signed by Paul, numbered (he has made 2,000 to date), and dated (first one created in 2005).  Each box is ledgered; your name and country of residence will be recorded in our book of Wonky owners when you purchase one.  So far, they are in 21 countries.

Each box is cut from a solid block of wood, you cannot take a drawer out and put it in another mini wonky because it won’t fit.  They are truly one of a kind.

The knobs are separate pieces of stained wood glued on with a dowel.

The Wonky family current consists of different styles:  Costello, Abbott, Windy, Potbelly, Topheavy and Hula.

The drawers have been flocked and there is leather on the feet to prevent scratching your table or dresser.  The drawers are fully removable.

The box has been finished with sealer and lacquer, thus no care is needed.  It will be handed down through generations.

Uniquely one of a kind – it takes about a day and a half to build each box.

Approx. size is 10-1/2” high x 5” wide feet (7” wide roof) x 3.75” deep roof.

Value $165.00
