UPHA Chapter 5 Party and Fundraiser Scheduled for February 22

With show season just around the corner, UPHA Chapter 5 will gather on Saturday, February 22, to celebrate a great year and kick off another. Once again being held at Tonanzio’s Restaurant in New Bloomfield, Missouri, the Annual Party and Fundraiser will once again feature the presentation of awards, along with a multitude of silent auction items. Tickets to the event are $30, including dinner and a live band to dance the night away.

A big highlight of the night will be the live auction featuring stud services to some of the top-producing Saddlebred stallions. Featured in this will be stallions such as Bluesville, a full brother to World’s Grand Champion Bravo Blue. Redwing Farm has generously donated a breeding to the World’s Champion and multiple World’s Champion producer, Designed. Sire of Our Brilliant Belle, RWC Joe Fabulous is also in this lineup, courtesy of the Nichols Family Farm, joined by another big name, I’m First, three times the Five-Gaited Stallion World’s Champion. Sire of such notable World’s Champions as Fort Chiswell’s Royal Kiss, Callaway’s Northern Kiss has been donated to Chapter 5 by the Honaker family.

The great Missouri establishment, Callaway Hills Farm, has generously donated to stud services to its home chapter. One of the most athletic stallions in the industry, the jet black World’s Champion Callaway’s Bluesman will be featured. Also from Callaway Hills will be a choice of a breeding to Callaway’s Cranston or Callaway’s The Gipper. The Gipper is by CH Caramac. Cranston is by Callaway’s Blue Norther. Both are out of Broodmare Hall of Fame mares.

Even if you can’t join in the fun at Tonanzio’s, you can still arrange to bid on one of these great stallions by contacting UPHA Chapter 5 Chairman Robert Gardiner at 630-222-8599 or
