Shine up your boots and head down to Wills Park Equestrian Center in Alpharetta, GA on July 18, 19 and 20, 2014 for the 13th Annual Benefit Ticket to Ride Horse Show sponsored by Harry Norman, REALTORS. The event will be a Georgia Hunter Jumper Association and Southern Hunter Jumper of Georgia Rated show and will feature Double-Point CLASSICS. All net proceeds will go to Battered Women Shelters in Lumpkin, Dawson, Forsyth, and Hall Counties.
On July 19 through July 21, 2013, the Forsyth/Lake Lanier Office worked with Black Horse Productions to put on the largest horse show Ticket to Ride has ever seen. With over 170 horses competing in the event, the show brought in over $12,000 that will now be donated to Hall County’s Gateway Domestic Violence Center, Forsyth County’s Family Haven, and Dawson and Lumpkin County’s No One Alone Shelter. The event was a Georgia Hunter Jumper Association and Southern Hunter Jumper of Georgia Rated show and featured Double-Point and Money Prize Classics.
Along with Harry Norman, REALTORS® Forsyth/Lake Lanier’s support, the show also had support from other various sponsors such as: Campbell & Brannon, J. Bristow Anderson Attorney at Law, Hawk Ridge Farm, Black Horse Productions, Hidden Oaks Show Jumpers, Vemma, Jar-Ja-Q, NLB Studios, Creations Bakery, Publix, Bulldog Movers, Buckhead Movers, and over 70 local businesses who donated items for the Silent Auction, which raised over $5,000.
The event also featured several vendors, concessions, a 50/50 raffle, a Cakes & Crafts party for children, and an Exhibitors Party where Nashville artist, Penny Dale, and Atlanta artist, Jay Memory performed.
"Our role here is to support the show so that we can increase the income to benefit the homes for battered women. We feel that giving back to the community is something Realtors should do," stated Senior Vice President and Managing Broker, Robert Aiken.
