Updated List of Sponsors

Since the last update, 75 more generous people have joined the list of sponsors supporting our National Awards! Thank you everyone!

It’s not too late. You can still sponsor awards and be included on the screen and on a card placed with the award. This is a great way to congratulate your friends on their hard work and at the same time help CFA fund our awards.

This year, we have more HHP winners, we are providing a trophy for the Agility cats, and again presenting very nice custom designed trophies for the breed awards and national winners. These awards are a costly part of the annual, and your support offsets the cost allowing CFA to fund other endeavors, like the show sponsorship fund.

So take a few minutes to peruse the list of national award cats and sponsor someone, then hug your cat for Hug Your Cat Day, and finish the night off with some cheese to celebrate National Cheese Day. Wow, two excellent holidays on the same day!

Sponsor Deadline Extended!

Donations received by June 3rd at midnight eastern time will be printed in the booklet, on the slideshow, and with a sponsor card in the award. Donations received between June 4th and June 20th will be acknowledged on the slideshow and card.  

All 2018-19 CFA National awards are now posted and available for sponsorship on our website. We are looking for interested individuals, clubs, breed councils, businesses, and more to pledge sponsorship of these awards. Your sponsorship will be acknowledged via a card in with the award itself, as well as in the awards booklet if sponsored by June 3rd. Breed Award Rosettes are available at $50 per breed/division. National Award (including HHP and Agility) Rosettes are sold in batches of five for $100. National Breed Award Trophies are available for $75 each. Agility award trophies are available for $50 each. National award trophies are available for $150 for best cat, and $75 for 2-25th places.
