The summer season came to a close with several terrific fundraisers. It was great to see so many people with a passion to help others in need.
“Back Where It All Began” held during the Hampton Classic Horse Show turned out to be a fun-filled, elegant event. Special thanks to the event chairman Stephanie Riggio for creating a successful evening.
More than 1,200 eventers joined us at the competitors’ party during the American Eventing Championships at Chattahoochee Hills in Fairburn, Ga. Great food, dancing and an auction completed the party.
The “Play It Forward” poker tournament in Las Vegas was great fun as the competition moved from the reining ring to the poker table. Special thanks to Mandi Brumley of Brumley Management Group and all our friends at the High Roller Reining Classic.
Please see the “Save the Date” calendar below, so that you don’t miss an event in the new year!

Each year the majority of our donations come from events, like those in this newsletter. These funds are used to help those in our community who are seriously injured or ill. In many cases, the EAF provides assistance for critical needs most take for granted – food, shelter and medical needs. Each time you buy a treasured auction item or have a great time at an EAF fundraiser – you are improving the lives of our recipients. We greatly appreciate your continued support of the EAF, its events, programs and recipients. We can’t do it without you.
