Mar. 14th Windsor Equestrian Center in Lakeside, CA will host the second annual East County Equestrian Foundation Benefit Sale 8-2pm. The event last year raised over $3,000 with over 20 vendors in attendance with horse tack and many other treasures for shoppers to buy for bargain prices. Attendees and vendors alike gave the event rave reviews and encouraged ECEF to do another one this year.
This year’s event is bound to sell out of booth space and the board members encourage all to book their spots quickly. Booth space is 10×10 and they are available for a $35 donation to ECEF. Book right away and ECEF will help promote the vendor’s items on their website, FB and Instagram platforms. All vendors must be approved prior to booking space.
On hand to help with the fundraising for the Lakeside Equestrian Park that breaks ground this year, are board member Don Bright and members of the Lakeside Optimist to cook up a fabulous St. Patrick’s Day lunch for a $10 donation.
ECEF was formed in 2012 and the non-profit organization has been working with the San Diego County Parks to come up with a nicely designed facility to host horse events and more. The covered arena on the 14-acre parcel at Willow and Morena will be the jewel of the park. A large community building will also be a feature that will benefit San Diego’s East County for many types of events. Not only horse shows, dog shows, farmer’s markets and many other community activities can be held at this new venue that will promote equestrian and agricultural events that represents the rural nature the area is known for.
The San Diego County Board of Supervisors funded the $4.5m park and they have approved to have the project sent out for bid. Ground breaking is planned for 2020 and opening is projected for 2021. The East County Equestrian Foundation 501c3 has been fundraising to raise money and awareness to help promote and operate the park and has so far raised nearly $88,000. They encourage everyone to visit their website to get the details about the Benefit Tack Sale, join the East County Equestrian Foundation for only $10 year, and or learn more about the coming Lakeside Equestrian Park.
ECEF hopes equestrians come out and support our fundraising event. Great bargains, free to attend and a yummy St. Patrick’s Day midday feast for only $10 will make for a fun event for all. www.LakesideEquestrianPark.com or call Cheryl 858-967-5765.
