Little Brown Jug Gala &
Charity Auction

September 19th, 2012
Delaware County Fairgrounds, Delaware, Ohio

New Vocations Needs Items/Sponsors for
Charity Event!

Join New Vocations for a Fun Evening of Entertainment, Good Food, & Great Company!

New Vocations’ exciting Little Brown Jug Benefit is coming up September 19th, 2012 at the Delaware County Fairgrounds in Delaware, Ohio.
This event generates much needed funds for the care and retraining of retired racehorses. However, its success is totally dependent on items donated for the silent auction and on table sponsorships.

Donate Items for Auction

Donors of items valued over $200 receive an invitation for two to the Pre-Jug Gala and Charity Auction

“We seriously need owners, breeders, trainers, drivers, racetracks, and those that benefit from racing, to help with this fundraiser,” said New Vocations Executive  Director Dot Morgan.  “Vacation packages, equine services, entertainment tickets, jewelry, memorabilia, tack, and gift items are necessary to make this event a success. We sure could use a week at a resort, a golf cart, a horse trailer, a car, or a motorcycle to create excitement.”

Proceeds go toward the retraining and placement of retired racehorses and the Delaware County Fair.

Sponsor a Table

Table Sponsors are also needed and a good option in lieu of merchandise or services.
Show your support by sponsoring a table in your name, your stable, your farm, or the name of a favorite horse. 
Attendance is not necessary.  Seating is Open.  Signs on the table recognize each sponsor for their support.
Even VIP guests can consider sponsoring a table or donating an auction item.
$400 to sponsor a table or $200 to co-sponsor

“This is a difficult time for retired racehorses and the organizations that care for them.” said Morgan.  “I can’t emphasize enough, how much we need everyone’s help.”

Horses in Peril as Drought Grips Much of the Country

This is a dangerous time for horses as feed prices skyrocket and hay is scarce.  Owning horses is a luxury.  Many that were already making sacrifices in order to keep their horses suddenly realize it’s impossible to continue.  If you find yourself in this situation, please network with equine welfare organizations and other horsemen to keep your horse safe. Together we can get through this crisis.

If you are struggling with feed or board bills, form a plan.  Determine what it actually costs to care for your horses and figure out if you can do it.  Hay is going to be scarce and pricey throughout much of the country.  Grain is readily available and can be fed in larger quantities to make up for less or inferior hay.  Grain is costing .20 to.30 a pound; quality hay at $8-10/bale breaks down to .20 – .25 a pound, almost the same. 

On average, a 1,000 pound retired racehorse needs a 25 pound combination of quality hay and grain each day.  Quality must be emphasized.  Poor hay has practically no nutritional value, so if the hay is poor, grain must be increased dramatically.  Therefore, due to drought driven prices expect to spend $5 – $6 a day just on feed.

New Vocations faces these higher costs in caring for over 70 horses at any given time.  An increase in adopters returning horses compounds matters.  Horses are totally dependent on each of us to meet their needs, and New Vocations is totally dependent on donations in order to feed those in its care.  If you have the means to help during this crisis, please designate a donation for feed.  Hay is readily saleable, but costly and cumbersome to ship.  If you have extra hay, it may be more cost effective to sell it and send the proceeds to purchase locally.    We are at your mercy to carry out this mission.  Please do what you can and be assured we will do what we can.

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation. New Vocations appreciates your support and contributions.
