The U.S. Harness Writers Association (USHWA) and the Harness Horse Youth Foundation (HHYF) are again teaming up to offer an exciting silent auction to benefit both organizations at the Dan Patch Awards dinner, presented by Hoosier Park, on Sunday, Feb. 26, at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.
For those who are on the go, one lucky bidder will be going to the 2017 Preakness on May 20. That package includes two tickets to Turfside Terrace at Pimlico including admission, seating, buffet, beer and wine, and parking. And while what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, one successful bidder can choose a two-night stay at any Caesar's property--not just in Las Vegas--along with a dinner for four.
Special works of art, including a 22x8x22 stone, fiberglass and resin horse head statue titled "Champagne," a framed, double matted 25x33" "Stretch Drive," signed print by renowned artist James Crown, and a 14x18 Greyhound framed print by R.H. Palenske are also up for bid.
For collectors, the auction features a Bow River two heart horse pendant and necklace featuring a .10 carat diamond and 14K gold necklace, and am equine-themed L.V. Harkness etched whiskey decanter.
In addition to on-site bidding in Las Vegas, USHWA and HHYF are offering advance bidding on all of these items. Contact Steve Wolf at 954-654-3757, or Ellen Taylor at 317-908-0029 for bidding requirements and information. (HHYF/USHWA)
