Event Details

Dinner is at 7:00 PM sharp.

WHAT:The GDCTA 2012 Awards Gala is the celebration for the Awards Program participants and winners as well as an annual fundraising event. This year's Gala is to Benefit  the UGA Vet School Building Fund for the new Vet Hospital.  A very unique and elegant party for GDCTA’s dressage and eventing members, complete with beautiful awards, an amazing dining experience, silent auction and art show, as well as a captivating slide presentation.



WHY: The GDCTA Awards Gala has a dual function:

1. Celebrating the achievements of all the GDCTA members who participated in the GDCTA Awards Program.


2. Raising funds for GDCTA  & The UGA Vet School Building Fund − The proceeds from the silent auction and a percentage of the sales of art allow GDCTA to continue its year-round event schedule and contribute to the UGA Building Fund for a new Vet Hospital.


GDCTA is the premiere resource for Atlanta's dressage and eventing community, and provides equestrians networking and educational opportunities throughout the year. GDCTA’s Grant program provides its members each year the means to take their career to the next level through an exceptional riding experience.
