Locust Valley, NY and Lewisville, NC – May 8, 2012 – This Saturday, the Seraphim12 Foundation will have the amazing opportunity to continue their efforts to promote awareness and change for America’s horses at Irish Oak Farm’s first annual benefit show. Irish Oaks Farm located in Lewisville, NC, will host their schooling show not only to benefit talented riders, but also to raise money and awareness to support the mission of the Seraphim12 Foundation and H.E.R.O Rescue Equine. 100 percent of the proceeds from the pledges/donations will be contributed to the organizations.
To take place this Saturday, May 12, 2012, the show will offer numerous hunter and jumper classes. Competitors are encouraged to ask their friends and families for pledges on their behalf. Seraphim12, H.E.R.O Rescue Equine and show management are hopeful that each competitor will submit at least five pledged sponsors when registering for classes. A percentage of the proceeds from the entries will benefit the Seraphim12 Foundation, and H.E.R.O Equine Rescue will provide the concessions.
The Seraphim12 Foundation is a 501(c)(3) Not-For-Profit dedicated to creating a sympathetic balance between horse and humans through compassion, education and legislation. Teaming up with Irish Oaks Farm will allow an opportunity for both parents and children to become involved in a variety of ways, fostering community advocacy in an effort to promote the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act (H.R. 2966 / S. 1176). Seraphim12 will provide pre-written letters for the adults to sign and send to not only local and national representatives, but also to the President of the United States. The children will also have the opportunity to write letters to express their feelings, bringing awareness to the ongoing slaughter and neglect issues.
Irish Oaks is very excited and honored to be hosting the schooling show to benefit wonderful riders while raising money to support both Seraphim12 Foundation (www.seraphim12foundation.org) and Hero Equine Rescue (www.heroequinerescue.org). They ask that participants take a few minutes to educate themselves on the two charities and spread the word to help support future efforts.
