Friends of Governor Dodge - Equestrians
We want to thank everyone who helped make our 5th Ride & Hike Fundraiser a HUGE success! Mother Nature can be thanked, too, for delivering perfect weather. We had 76 pre-registered participants and about 42 walk-ins the day of the event!
A special thank you to our sponsors and to the many generous folks who donated items for our incredible silent auction.
Final numbers are not in yet, but we estimate that we netted just under $12,000! This surpasses our goal, thanks to all of you!
All funds go to build a new equestrian campground, so if you missed your chance to donate, you can still help. If you'd like to get involved with our group, we welcome new members. Visit our Join/Donate page.
CONGRATULATIONS to this year's winner of the $100 cash prize, Ella Mellum. Ella is 7 years old and rode her grandpa's mule, Glenda, on Sunday. This is the third consecutive year that grandmother (Kattee Christianson), daughter (Tara Mellum), and grand daughter Ella rode together at the event!
Rose Rott drew cards for second place and $75 and Roger Parr came in third for a $50 prize.
