After dinner the fun really begins with the many items up for grabs at the live auction which begins at 8:00 p.m. in the upper level. There will be many silent auctions running throughout the evening too. We will have games for kids, music, and more entertainment. We are gathering items now; gift certificates, gift items, horse tack and general items as well are appreciated, so contact Marlene below if you have something you wish to donate to this great cause. In addition to this, we will be drawing our major raffle prizes on Sunday.

The weekend continues on Sunday when we hold the First Annual Wisconsin State Horse Council Equine Foundation Benefit Stallion Service Auction. This will be an all breed stallion service auction. Stallions can come from anywhere. With the advent of shipped semen, we can sell your stallion's service online, by phone or mail! So please join in this effort even if you are from outside of Wisconsin. We will then have a futurity for resulting foals of these stallions starting in 2005, with a guaranteed minimum $5000 purse for the Futurity Classes. Stallions who are sold this first year will be added to a permanent plaque at the new Horse Facility as well.

We will also have a huge Tack Sale going on throughout the day on Sunday. Spaces must be reserved early! Spaces are $50 for Commercial 8' x 10' space or $15 for tablespace for Non Commercial. Check with Marlene or Bob Dreifke for more details. Or see on website above.

All donations are fully tax deductible, including the Stallion Services, so please be generous with your contributions. These two events can raise many
thousands of dollars that we need to move forward with the Wisconsin State Horse Park. Contact Info Below:
