The 2nd Annual Solid Gold USET Foundation Benefit Dinner is drawing near! The festivities will begin at 6:30 PM in the Global Dressage Facility’s VIP tent on Saturday, March 15, 2014. You won’t want to miss it! “Prancing With the Stars!” The evening entertainment will begin with a dressage performance in the International Ring with live horses. Then the party will move inside, under the tent and continue with hors d’oeurves, cocktails and dinner. Dave and Tuny Page are providing the wine for this event from their extensive wine collection. Kim and Fred Boyer are providing all the food for the evening. Next will be our “Prancing With the Stars!” competition. We will start the evening with a demonstration given by professional dancers. Then our judges will critique and rank eight couples on their 3 minute performances. Judges for the competition are Ellin Dixon Miller, Jane Savoie and Bent Jensen.

After the performances, we will have a live auction where we will sell our performers and some other incredible action items. The Dressage Connection will make sure that you are dressed for success with the very finest head-to-toe Dressage outfit including: a Charles Owen custom helmet, a Pikeur tailcoat and breeches, a custom shirt and stock tie, a pair of Roekel Sport gloves, a pair of Koenig boots, your choice of spurs and straps. And if that is not enough, add to that this solid 24 karat gold gorgeous stock pin designed by Jean Dover and worn to Olympic medals by Robert Dover! This entire package is valued at well over $10,000 but Robert will also add his “Olympic Rings” lapel pin and his actual Olympic ring from Athens, awarded only to US Team Athletes making this outfit priceless!

100% of all money collected from the benefit (ticket sales and auction proceeds) will directly fund our 2014 World Equestrian Games athletes and High Performance Programs. All donations are tax-deductible. Checks should be made out directly to the USET Foundation.
