They’ve waited anxiously and patiently to host this in-person fundraising event.

And the Horsey Ladies are happy to announce it’s on, and sold out.

A total of 100 tickets were plucked up in just two days for the Nov. 18 fundraiser at the Spallumcheen Golf Course north of Vernon where, once again, a traditional turkey buffet dinner with all the fixings, and the auction room will be open with tables full of silent and toonie auction items.

“The golf course has changed their table set-up and we are now limited to just 100 horsey ladies to attend,” said event spokesperson Nancy Roman.

But there is still a chance for the community to help the ladies decided who needs funds the most.

“We are also inviting anyone to our Facebook page to pitch or suggest their favourite charity and raise awareness to deserving groups,” said Roman. “This will help the 100 horsey ladies decide who to vote for that evening – only those in attendance can vote – and then all proceeds from the auction items will be going to the top vote-getter.”

Horsey Ladies, to date, have raised more than $119,000 for local charities.
