"Jewels and Jods" is the 81st Annual PWC Horse Show and will take place as part of Stephens College’s 175th Anniversary celebration and in conjunction with Alumnae Reunion 2008. It will be reminiscent of the Commencement Horse Shows held in the early years of the College and showcase Stephens College students and horses. Following the show, there will be a catered dinner, live entertainment and a live auction. Silent auction items will be available throughout the evening.

In a unique addition to the regular show format, attendees will be assigned a "character profile" upon registration that identifies them as a horse-loving celebrity with a specific credit limit with which to "purchase" horses during a mock auction. For instance, one attendee might become Elvis Presley and boast a $150,000 credit limit.

Andrew Weir, a talented jazz pianist, will provide live music for the evening. A video featuring Stephens’ history will be shown, with opportunities for alumnae and guests to share their own Stephens stories. The live auction will begin at 8:30 p.m. with silent auctions items available to bid on all night.

This will be the first year for an event of this kind at Stephens College.

The Prince of Wales Club, established at Stephens College in 1926, is the oldest continually active riding club in the country. The club helps to educate riders, encourages good sportsmanship, and assists in development of appreciation for all horse breeds and disciplines.
