The Second Annual MIDA Farm Babington Benefit Grand Prix
Tuesday February 21, 2023
Save The Date
Following the spectacular feedback from this year’s event, Victoria McCullough has once again generously volunteered her amazing grass field and home to host the “Babington Benefit Classic 1.40 Grand Prix”. She will also host the evening reception, and we will also conduct a silent auction again as well. All proceeds will once again benefit www.KevinBabingtonFoundation.org for spinal cord injury support for the recovery of equestrians suffering, and the promotion of safety air vests, as well as research and communication.
Last year we welcomed 68 horses from 9 countries who took to the best grass jumping surface in Florida and enjoyed Leopoldo Palacios graciously set course. It was even more spectacular with the donation of the Dalman Jump Company’s best wares in use.
The day was capped off by a lavishly catered reception at Victoria’s beautiful home and the silent auction was concluded. As a reminder, the auction included everything from a Bruce Springsteen autographed guitar, the box at the Boston Bruins, lessons from our Olympian athletes and much more. That same impressive evening will be repeated in 2023.
All this works in tandem with The Davis McCullough Foundation’s annual support of the Silver Oak Jumper Tournament held in Traverse City, Michigan September 7-11 of 2022. We are very grateful for Victoria’s ongoing support.
We look forward to seeing you in Traverse City, Michigan in September, and Wellington on February 21, 2023.
