Halters worn by Triple Crown winners American Pharoah and Justify headline items being offered in an online auction to raise money for Central Kentucky Riding for Hope, the 38-year-old nonprofit headquartered at the Kentucky Horse Park that offers equine-assisted activities and therapies to people of all ages. The online auction is part of CKRH’s 16th annual gala fundraiser, NIGHT OF THE STARS, to be held Saturday, June 22 at Keeneland. Bidding on the halters and numerous other items is available at https://2019STARS.givesmart.com.
“CKRH is extremely proud of NIGHT OF THE STARS, an annual celebration of our therapy horses, participants, volunteers, supporters and collaborators from throughout Central Kentucky,” CKRH Executive Director Pat Kline said. “The online auction enables people who aren’t able to attend NIGHT OF THE STARS to obtain distinctive items and support CKRH. We are especially thankful to the Thoroughbred industry in Central Kentucky, including farms and veterinary clinics, which provides year-round assistance to CKRH.”
