Last night we hosted the Outback Steakhouse Charity Dinner which raised over $30,000 for the Hope Clinic.  It was a great night at the covered area.  Thank you Outback Steakhouse for the donation of the dinners and to Becky Miles who coordinated the event.  During the dinner the show hosted a Ride and Run class which consisted of a rider doing a short jumper course followed by a groom navigating a course with hay, feed, and water in a wheel barrel.  Fun was had by all.  The winner of the class was Angel Karoli aboard Willy Wonka.

The Charity Dinner also had a silent auction and one of the items was donated to benefit Linda Tinkler, one of our braiders who just had surgery for breast cancer.  The painting was donated by Sally Burns and together with the Non-Pro Low Hunter entry fees that Classic Company donated, a nice check will be on its way to Linda on Monday.

The Adequan Pre Green Classic Championship is winding down with only three shows left (Charleston I, II and Atlanta Fall I).  As many of you know the top 20 horses in the standings will be invited to compete in November with no entry fee.  The prize money for the finals consists of all the entry fees collected for the Pre Green Classics held all year and then matched by the Classic Company. If you would like to see the entire list, I will do my best to get it on the website ASAP.
