This month, the PVDA Ride for Life will be held in Upper Malboro, celebrating a decade of raising funds for the Johns Hopkins Avon Foundation’s Breast Cancer Center.

There will be several events taking place on the day, including a dressage competition recognized by the USDF/USEF, demonstration rides, the Dancing Horse Challenge, a silent auction, an evening horse show, and children’s activities. There will also be several contests during the event, such as stall decorating. Vendors will be selling a variety of equestrian-related merchandise, such as saddles, clothing, and blankets.

One major event will be the gala dinner, which will have a theme of ‘Mission possible’. Dress is black tie and guests will enjoy a cocktail reception, a cash bar, wine and beer, dinner, dancing, and live entertainment. Entertainment will consist of magician Bill Gross and the band Unruly Blues.

Sponsorships are available from $500 – $10,000. It is probable that businesses from all over the area, including nearby Laurel, will be investing in this important event. Organizers are also likely investing in services like sign and banner printing to help recognize these sponsors during the various events.
