People can bid for each month and the highest bidder not only gets their pooch featured in this gorgeous calendar, but they also receive other lovely gifts donated by dog-friendly businesses.

The highest bidder for August, will also get an o/n stay at Wiggley Bottom Farm in the Yarra Valley AND a wine tour with Pooches And Pinot all of which has been donated to this important cause.

All of which will go directly to the Victorian Bushfire Appeal and 100% of these donated funds will go directly to communities in need

The exhibition will feature over 30 works from local and prominent artists such as visual artists Lewis Miller and Karen Hopkins, internationally renowned ceramicist Kevin White and award-winning designer jeweler Jeanette Dyke. As well as many of Montsalvat’s studio artists and local artists.
