Stride With Us – Silent Auction Fundraiser
In the past years, we have all seen the effects that disasters have on our industry, from the 2013 Calgary Floods, the 2017 Fort McMurray Fires, to the recent wildfires in BC and Alberta. As AEF continues to work on our Alberta Equine Industry Emergency Preparedness Plan we thought 2018 would be the perfect year to raise funds to purchase an emergency livestock handling equipment trailer for a community in need, in Alberta.
This trailer will be used when disasters occur such as wild fires, floods and roadside accidents involving livestock. The cost of a trailer is close to $40,000, while a significant cost, they are also a significant resource when needed. Currently there are 16 trailers in the province and we want to add another.
Stride With Us is expected to draw 100 equine enthusiasts and we are providing an opportunity for individuals and organizations to be prominently featured in the event program, social media and event registration. In addition, each program will contain a “support our supporters” flyer listing contact details for all donors. The AEF will be holding a silent auction during this event to raise funds to purchase this trailer for the Foothills region.
We are asking individuals and organizations to please consider donating a product or service for this important fundraising initiative. All donations are greatly appreciated; logo will be on display alongside your donated item or service.
