New Vocations Racehorse Adoption Program is seeking auction items and table sponsors for its annual Pre-Jug Party & Charity Auction to be held Wednesday, Sept. 19, at the Delaware County Fair. Proceeds go toward the retraining and placement of retired Standardbreds and the Delaware County Fair.
"We’re asking owners, breeders, trainers, drivers, racetracks and those that benefit from racing, to please support this important fundraiser," said New Vocations executive director Dot Morgan.
Vacations, tickets to sporting events, equine services, memorabilia and tack, as well as, home and barn accessories are all being sought. Items that can be easily mailed are a plus since bidding can be done off site from any mobile device. Higher end items like vacations and experiences are especially helpful.
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 or the name of a favorite horse. Attendance is not required as 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. Visit www.wedoauctions.net/prejugparty to sponsor a table, view items as they arrive and register to bid. All bidding is via mobile device whether at the party or off site.
"New Vocations is totally dependent on donations to rehabilitate, retrain, and rehome hundreds of retired racehorses each year," said Morgan. "Participating in this event is a fun & easy way to give back to the horses we all love. I can’t emphasize enough, how much we need everyone’s help." For the first time, people will be able to view the items in advance and bid remotely from their mobile devices. To see the items and register to bid, visit: www.wedoauctions.net/prejugparty. New items will be added daily up to the event.
