Give Back to Area VI

By Area VI - Edited Press Release

Area VI and its sponsors have not been immune to the economic impacts of 2020. In order to continue providing amazing programs and events we need your help.

As we get ready to close the books on this year, we, like so many other businesses across the country (and around the globe) are assessing the impact 2020 has had on our bottom line. With our eventing calendar cut to a fraction of normal this year we are looking at heavy losses from reduced event fees, an absence of fundraisers, as well as camps, clinics, and a myriad of other revenue-generating opportunities which were halted due to the global Coronavirus pandemic.

Normally, we as an Area each year put together an auction event to raise much-needed funds for our Young Riders, Adult Riders, and the Area Administration. This year, after serious consideration, the Area VI Council deemed it to be inappropriate to reach out to our wonderful sponsors asking for contributions (merchandise, travel accommodations, services, etc.) at a time when many are just trying to keep their doors open. Yet, we must raise income to springboard us towards gaining some financial recovery in 2021.

So often, in times of hardship, we must look within and find a solution. This year we are asking our membership - each and every member - to take part in our year-end Appeal by making a $50 tax-deductible contribution to Area VI.

While it is understood that some may need to give less, and others may be in a position to give above the $50 ask, the importance lies with 100 percent participation from our community. The responsibility to rebound from the setbacks faced this year rests with each and every one of us here in Area VI and together we can set the foundation for a strong comeback in 2021.

As the Area VI Council, we ask for your support in sharing this campaign with your students, friends, and all Area VI members. We have created a flyer you can download here to share via text and email.

Please contact [email protected] with any questions.

Thank you for your participation and support,
The Area VI Council

The VIP Volunteer: Julie Murray

Julie Murray has loved horses since she could breathe, so when her daughters showed an interest in Pony Club and then eventing, she was thrilled to go along for the ride.

Murray started volunteering at the Fallbrook Pony Club near her home in Fallbrook, California, serving as an intermediate district commissioner.
