Vinceremos Therapeutic Riding Center Hosts 26th Annual Benefit Auction, Dinner And Dance On Feb. 8

Vinceremos Therapeutic Riding Center will host its 26th Annual Benefit Auction on Friday, February 8, 2013, at 6:30 p.m. at The Grand Pavilion at the International Polo Club Palm Beach. The event invites all guests to “Explore the Possibilities” during an evening to celebrate the possibilities that exist in all of us. Tickets are available now for dinner and the fun events planned for the evening, which includes live auction bidding.

Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres will be served followed by dinner, wine and dancing. The evening will also feature the 3rd annual “Buck Off” Finals, the concluding event for a series of mechanical bull riding competitions held over a three week period in January. The winners of each week will compete to win the coveted “Buck Off” Buckle at the Championship on February 8. 

The event will highlight a premier auction featuring celebrity hostess Tami Hoag. All auction items are available online; you can bid in advance without even being in Wellington. Some interesting silent auction items include a chance to experience the 2013 Masters Golf Experience in Augusta hosted by Wayne Player, a Wanderers Club golf foursome, a Show Ready System that provides ice therapy to your horse, and much more!

The Live Auction is sure to have a lively bidding war for items such as a stay in apartments in New York City or Vail, Colorado, scooters, and a full shipment of hay and Purina Feed.

The “Explore the Possibilities” event will bring together riders, volunteers, donors, and community members in the hope of continuing VTRC’s successful program. This event is the main source of funding for VTRC and enables the Center to provide services to its clients each year through its four different programs: Therapeutic Riding, Hippotherapy, Therapeutic Carriage Driving and Equine Facilitated Learning.

In addition to bidding on auction items online, guests can also donate directly to VTRC. VTRC is a 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit corporation which has been providing recreational and therapeutic horseback riding to those with disabilities in Palm beach County since 1982. Donating options include foundation grants, individual contributions, new and used horse/farm/office supplies, horse sponsorships and memorial contributions. VTRC can also always use volunteers.

The 2013 "Explore the Possibilities" Annual Benefit Auction, Dinner and Dance is an event that takes the hard work and dedication of many people to come together. The VTRC would like to thank the host committee, chairpersons, auction committee, and young professionals committee for all of their contributions.

Dress is safari chic, table sponsorships are available, and the cost of individual tickets is $250 per person (check/Visa/Mastercard/AmEx/Discover Accepted). RSVP by February 1, 2013. For more information, call 561-792-9900 or reserve online at www.vinceremos.org.
