Items, services, and table sponsors are needed for the eighth annual Little Brown Jug benefit held in conjunction with the Pre-Jug party on Wednesday (Sept. 18). Proceeds go toward the retraining and placement of retired racehorses and the Delaware Co. Fair.
"We seriously need owners, breeders, trainers, drivers, racetracks, and those that benefit from racing, to help with this fundraiser,” said New Vocations Executive Director Dot Morgan. "Vacation packages, equine services, entertainment tickets, jewelry, memorabilia, tack, and gift items are wanted to make this event a success.”
Table sponsors are also needed and a good option in lieu of merchandise or services. Show your support by sponsoring a table in your name, your stable, your farm, or the name of a favorite horse. Attendance is not necessary. Seating is open. Signs on the table recognize each sponsor for their support. It's $400 to sponsor a table or $200 to co-sponsor.
"This is a difficult time for retired racehorses and the organizations that care for them,” said Morgan. "I can't emphasize enough, how much we need everyone's help.”
Table sponsorships can be paid online at http://www.horseadoption.com/, under Make a Donation. Please designate in the comments box.(New Vocations)
