The Ronald McDonald House of the Bluegrass in Lexington, Kentucky will be holding a drawing to win framed halters worn by Triple Crown winners American Pharoah and Justify.
The halters, donated by Coolmore’s Ashford Stud, where the pair stand, are professionally framed in museum-quality shadowboxes by Frames on Main in Paris, Ky., and come with a letter of authenticity.
The funds will raise money for the Ronald McDonald House of the Bluegrass, which allows families to stay close to their children while they are receiving the medical care they need. At the House, families who are away from home to be with their children at local hospitals are provided home-cooked meals, laundry facilities, bedrooms with private bathrooms, indoor and outdoor play areas for children, special suites for children with suppressed immune systems, recreational activities, and transportation to and from local hospitals three times per day.
Much of the House’s work is done by dedicated volunteers. Volunteers serve as van drivers, help with yard work and cleaning projects, conduct fundraisers and serve on a variety of committees.
A minimum of 60 tickets must be sold in order to hold the auction, which will be streamed live on the charity’s Facebook page September 30, with the winner to be notified no later than that evening at 6 p.m.
The auction was made possible by Coolmore America and Bobby Shiflet of Frames on Main, with special thanks to Brian Tormey, Bruce Rintoul and The Vollet Family.
