On Saturday, May 17th, 2008 at 6:00pm, the Starr Vaughn Equestrian Center in Elk Grove, CA will be hosting a benefit evening to raise money for the Region 7 FEI Jr/YR team. All proceeds raised will go directly to the teams to help riders and their horses travel to Colorado this summer to compete at the 2008 Platinum Performance/USDF North American Junior/Young Rider Dressage Championships.

Our evening will include dinner, entertainment, live performances, a silent auction, wine-tasting, raffles, music, and so much more! Tickets and sponsorship/advertising are tax-deductible.
