"Back Where it all Began" will be held Thursday, Sept. 2, 6-11 pm at the Bridgehampton Community House during the Hampton Classic Horse Show in Bridgehampton, N.Y. The beach-style party will benefit the Equestrian Aid Foundation (EAF), a nonprofit organization that provides financial assistance to equestrians and horsemen in need.
Partygoers are encouraged to "come as you are" from the Hampton Classic Horse Show to enjoy drinks and hors d'oeuvres in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. An auction offering products and services will complete the evening.
"Being at this event over the years has felt a lot like coming home," said EAF President R. Scot Evans. "It is a wonderful way to bring us all together to help those in our community suffering hard times, either from an illness or injuries."
"Back Where it all Began" refers to the connections EAF has to the area as a home base for many of its members and the launch announcement to become a membership-based organization. Memberships provide a sustainable income to assist the growing number or horsemen and equestrians in need of support.

About the Equestrian Aid Foundation:
In 1996 the Equestrian AIDS Foundation was established to assist those with HIV/Aids. Recognizing a broader need, the organization changed its name and mission. The Equestrian Aid Foundation's mission is to build a membership based organization to assist anyone in the equestrian world suffering from life threatening illness, catastrophic accidents or injuries by providing financial assistance for their medical or other basic needs. It is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization that provides grant recipients funding for medical, healthcare, rehabilitation and essential expenses, such as housing and food throughout their time of need.
Its pledge is to treat EAF recipients with dignity and respect while promising its members and sponsors the highest level of fiduciary responsibility with their dues and donations. To learn more about the EAF visit www.equestrianaidfoundation.org.
