    It’s time to start getting psyched about whose award we want to sponsor or how we can help support our Breeds and our Region. There are various ways to do this.

    First Place Cat, Kitten, Premiership Cat or Household Pet – $60
    2 – 25 Cat, Kitten, Premiership – $45
    2 – 10 Household Pet – $45
    Distinguished Merit or Grand of Distinction – $45
    Breed Awards (includes Color awards) – $20

    In addition to, or instead of, individual sponsorships, we invite you to donate to our General Award Sponsorship fund. This will be used to fill in any gaps and would be a great way for show producing clubs to support the cats who helped their shows succeed. Also good if you just want to help support the Region as it honors these beautiful cats. All donations will be acknowledged in the awards booklet. Deadline: May 17, 2019

    You can either email me or complete the form and mail to me with your check payable to the CFA Midwest Region.
