CKRH Night of the Stars Fundraiser June 22


Central Kentucky Riding for Hope (CKRH), a non-profit which offers a variety of equine-assisted therapies and activities for people of all ages, will host its 21st annual gala fundraiser, Night of the Stars, June 22 at Fasig Tipton in Lexington. “Broadway Nights” is the theme of the event, which begins at 6 p.m., and  which includes dinner and drinks, a silent auction and a live auction in which the highest bidders earn a sponsorship of CKRH participants and their equine partners.

“Night of the Stars is a meaningful way for people to celebrate and support CKRH, which for more than 40 years has provided therapy programs that showcase the healing power of horses,” CKRH Executive Director Pat Kline said. “We are proud to have helped thousands of people over the years thanks to our beloved therapy horses, who produce such positive physical and emotional responses. While our horses represent many breeds, the Thoroughbred industry is an especially strong supporter of ours, sharing our belief that horses have a magic ability to communicate with people.”

Bidding is now open on both silent and live auctions at Items include: halters from Thoroughbreds, including Cody's Wish, Curlin, Flightline, Gun Runner, Rachel Alexandra, Tapit and Uncle Mo; a gameday experience with the University of Kentucky men's basketball team; a wide selection of Kentucky bourbon; two days of racing at Kentucky Downs for four people; and a day of racing in the Godolphin box at Keeneland for six people.
