Save the Date!!! CDS East Bay Annual Gala

CDS East Bay is pleased to announce the date of the Annual Dinner, Auction and Awards Gala — Centerlines and Vines — Friday, March 21, 2014 at the beautiful Casa Real at Ruby Hill Winery in the Livermore Wine Country.

Each year our chapter joins together for a fun evening in celebration of the sport we love, and to recognize the highpoint winners of the Chapter horse shows. New this year, the Gala will begin with a wine tasting during the hors d’œuvre reception and silent auction. This will be followed by a delicious sit-down dinner and lavish dessert reception.

In addition, we are happy to announce our community will join forces once again in support of the charity organization Horses’ Honor, with 50% of our net proceeds of the silent auction to benefit their special horse rescue and sanctuary. Over 80 sponsors and donors contribute to our event with wonderful auction and raffle items. Proceeds will also go to help provide resources for our Chapter’s educational programs, clinic opportunities with world renowned riders and coaches, and member resources to further advance them in the sport of dressage.

Highlights from the 2013 CDS East Bay Annual Dinner and Awards Gala

This year’s CDS East Bay Gala at The Blackhawk Auto Museum, was attended by 200 party-goers who bid on a wide variety of auction items enabling us to donate $4,385 directly to Horses’ Honor – our first time to ever benefit a charity organization. This amount translated into a supply of hay to nourish their horses for ONE YEAR.

Heartfelt thanks go to our gracious sponsors, individual patrons, members and guests, as well as the over 30 volunteers, including the tireless Event Committee and CDS Board of Directors who made this event possible.
