As you know, last year we were able to donate $2,500 with $1,250 going to Central Illinois Riding Therapy (CIRT) and the remaining $1,250 going to St. Jude Children’s Hospital. Our office, gate & ring help graciously donated their services for the day.

Our judges for the Hopedale Windmill Classic (Mike Sheppard & Stephanie McConnell), have already agreed to waive their overtime fees in order to contribute more monies toward the Charity show. Let’s raise more money than last year to benefit a great charity or two!
