Wellington, FL – February 1, 2012 – The United States Equestrian Team Foundation is pleased to recognize the generous support of their Gold Medal Club (GMC) members. The Gold Medal Club is the lifeblood of the USET Foundation, accounting for nearly 80% of individual contributions each year, and is comprised of members who contribute a minimum of $1,000 or more annually. On Friday, January 27, 2012, the USET Foundation hosted “An English Country Evening” Benefit, where they recognized GMC Members that have made the USET Foundation a priority in their charitable giving for 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30 years.
The GMC members have been a vital and essential source of support to the U.S. equestrian teams. For the last 10 years, the following GMC members have continued to generously support the USET Foundation: Sherry & Allen Adams, Henry L. Collins III, Anne W. Eldridge, Mr. & Mrs. Richard M. Feldman, Jan Neuharth, Marcia R. Phillips, Karen Ramsing-Bixler, Phyllis Dye Turner and Anthony V. Weight

Receiving the USET Foundation’s 30 Year Award, the Foundation’s highest honor, was Corwith Hamill and the U.S. Eventing Association.
The USET Foundation would not be able to achieve their mission to support the competition, training, coaching, travel and educational needs of America’s elite and developing international, high-performance horses and athletes in partnership with the United States Equestrian Federation without the generous support of each and every member of the Gold Medal Club.
