NOVA Equine Hurricane Benefit

November 12-13, 2005
Location: Cavallo Farms, Gum Spring Road, (Gum Spring intersects Rt 234 N and Rt 50)

Join the Nokesville Horse Society, an affiliate of the Northern Virginia Coalition of Equine Organizations, in a fun show to raise money for the equestrians and their equines affected by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.  These hurricanes wreaked havoc in the Gulf Coast area, affecting hundreds of equines and their owners.  100% of the net proceeds from this event will go directly to the recovery efforts.  We encourage ANYONE to participate, regardless of discipline or breed.  Come on out and enjoy some friendly team competition between barns, clubs, riding groups and friends! 

If you would like to volunteer, donate or need more information about this very special benefit, contact:

DONATE FOR THE CAUSE



We are seeking donated items for our Live and Silent Auctions.  Any goods or services are being accepted as items for our Live and Silent Auctions, including business services, horse items, non-horse items, time shares, etc. 

Donations of horse items will be accepted at the event to deliver to horse owners in the Gulf Coast region affected by the hurricanes.  A list of requested items will be posted on this website several days prior to the event.  Cash deductible donations will be accepted both days of the event.  All funds donated will be distributed to horse owners in the affected area throughout the State Horse Councils in the region.

The largest natural disaster our country has ever seen hit the Gulf Coast region with the combination of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Many horse owners from Alabama to Texas lost fences, barns, homes even entire farms, as well as some of their horses. Our event is an opportunity for horse people of Northern Virginia to help other horse people in need!
