Ocala, FL (November 8, 2011) – Horst and Luisa Ferrero, founders of the Sebastian Ferrero Foundation, will soon enjoy a carriage ride with world champion combined driver Chester Weber at his scenic Live Oak Farm in Ocala, Florida. Weber, the eight-time USEF National Four-In-Hand Champion, donated a carriage ride to the silent auction at the Sebastian Ferrero Foundation’s 4th annual fundraising event, Noche de Gala, and the Ferreros won the bid to spend an afternoon driving with the Four-In-Hand Champion.
The 4th Annual Noche de Gala “Enchanted” was held Saturday, October 22nd at Besilu Collection in Micanopy, Florida, benefiting the Shands Hospital for Children at the University of Florida. The evening proved to be a success and a night to remember, with more than 1,000 guests, 120 sponsors and over 150 volunteers.
Thanks to the support of the community, the Sebastian Ferrero Foundation was proud to give a $1.5 million gift to support the next phase of the children’s hospital — the pediatric intensive care unit.
