Dressage Community Contributes to Equestrian Aid at the 2009 Palm Beach Dressage Derby
Friday, March 13, 2009
Over $11,000 was raised at the Palm Beach Dressage Derby for the Equestrian Aid Foundation with contributions to a silent auction which was presented at the Markel/Palm Beach Derby Inspection reception, and then held over the weekend for bidding. Check out the generous contributions and see who got them! Be sure to visit their websites to see our friends in the industry with some exciting products and services helping to support this worthy cause.
Members of DressageDaily’s Virtual Vendor, as well as individuals showing their support made the fundraiser possible at no expense to the Foundation, so that all contributions were able to cover the four day event. On hand for the weekend was EAF’s Grant Recipient Services Director, Janise Gray who read a moving letter from a recipient at the party. EAF’s founder Robert Dover and partner Robert Ross, as well as treasurer Dr. Cetty Weiss, and board members Dr. Michael Kohl and partner Marc Ulanowski helped the DressageDaily staff promote and manage the four day event.
Special thanks goes out to all contributors and those bidding for making this premier event for Equestrian Aid a success.
