Wellington, FL – March 13, 2013 – Equestrian Sport Productions and Wellington Equestrian Partners are pleased to announce that they will host a USET Foundation Benefit on Friday, April 12, 2013, at 6:30 pm. Held in the Global Pavilion at The Stadium at PBIEC, home to the Adequan Global Dressage Festival (AGDF), the benefit has the theme of “Solid Gold!” and will raise money toward funding the U.S. Dressage Team in their 2013 European tours. The tours are in preparation for the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Normandy, France.
“We are excited to host this benefit for our U.S. Dressage Team,” said Mark Bellissimo, CEO of Equestrian Sport Productions. “We have shown our commitment to the sport of Dressage through the Adequan Global Dressage Festival, and this fits perfectly in our goals to help the sport.”
U.S. Olympian Robert Dover stated, “We welcome everyone to this event to help raise money for our U.S. Dressage Team. The tours are imperative for our teams to be competitive in the upcoming world championship, and funding is a must for our teams to be well-prepared. We hope everyone will come out to support our team and have fun at the same time!”
In addition to the benefit dinner, there will be an exciting live auction to win “A Day with a Team Rider,” that can be a chance to fulfill your dreams of spending the day with one of the Team’s top equestrians. Take a clinic, go out to dinner, or go for a trail ride – it’s up to the winner!
The evening’s entertainment will include a special performance by the AGDF judges, followed by a live auction for a seat next to a judge for the following day’s competition at the Wellington Dressage Nations Cup CDIO 3*/CDI 3* presented by Stillpoint Farm.
The dress for the event is “casual to gilded” to fit with the gold theme. Tickets are available at $200 each or $1,600 for a table of eight. Sponsorship is also available at Silver ($2,500), Gold ($5,000), and Platinum ($10,000) levels.
