A Hopeful Return to Normalcy! SAVE THE DATE! JUNE 20TH
Fairfield Welcomes Back the EQUUS Foundation on June 20th with a $50,000 Grand Prix and Luncheon
On behalf of the EQUUS Foundation and the Fairfield County Hunt Club, we hope that you, your family, friends, and colleagues are safe. These are troubling times and many among us are facing serious financial hardships. We are pleased to let you know that the EQUUS Foundation Benefit Luncheon & Fairfield Grand Prix is scheduled to be held on Saturday, June 20th, as planned.
Wynatte Chu and Sean Hogan, Co-Chairs of the Fairfield County Hunt Club June Benefit Horse Show, shared, "The Fairfield County Hunt Club recognizes that these tumultuous times have been difficult for all. We have been closely monitoring reports and information regarding COVID-19 from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), the various U.S Government departments, Connecticut and surrounding state Government bodies, USEF and other horse show associations. While this situation continues to be fluid, the 2020 Fairfield County Hunt Club June Benefit Horse Show will continue as planned in the hopes that we return to normalcy soon. Be well and we will see you in June."
If plans change, we hope we can still count on your continued support. COVID-19 has put tremendous stress on equine charities across the nation that are dedicated to protecting America’s horses and strengthening the horse-human bond. Many have had to close their doors to their volunteers and cancel much-needed fundraising events and programs -- the lifeblood to sustain their operations. Their horses need our help more than ever right now. These charities, running at minimal operation staff, have to continue to feed, care, and shelter these magical animals during this time of crisis.
