Louisville Brunch & Auction 2017 - Save the Date & Register Now!



From the desk of Mark and Nealia McCracken

Friends of Saddlebred Rescue, 

We are happy to announce in our 11th year of operations we are holding the 10th Annual Louisville Brunch and Auction at the Crowne Plaza Hotel beginning on Wednesday afternoon August 23rd for the Auction Reveal where you can register, bid and purchase Brunch tickets. The event is held as always on Thursday morning the 24th at 11 am at the hotel and it wraps up by 1:30 pm. The theme this year is Celebrate the Horse and we hope you can join us for good food, awards, rescue stories and more all orchestrated by our emcee Tuffy Owens. 

We are also trying a new auction format. We have hired Gesture who provides specialized auction support for nonprofits to assist in streamlining the process, making it an enjoyable experience and reaching as many people as possible. You can register for the event, buy your brunch tickets, donate to the auction and review and bid on auction items before the event by going to the following special secured website. Click Here as normal all items will be at the Brunch for bid and you can either continue to bid online or bid directly at the event with the support of one of our Auction Monitors. It’s simple and check out after the auction has been assured to us will be a breeze. 

Auction donations can be either sent to us in New Jersey at SBR 6 Meadow Cliff Lane Hardwick, NJ 07825 or register online and send or drop off your item at the hotel to the following address just prior to the event. To register online all you need is your contact information, a description of the auction item, a donation value and a couple pictures to post. We will do the rest.
