Reprinted from the Pennsylvania Hunt Cup committee
Dear Friends and Supporters,
Thank you to everyone who made the 87th running of the Pennsylvania Hunt Cup Races such a success. It takes a village to put on a hunt meet, starting with our loyal sponsors who made it possible to have the day.
We loved being able to welcome fans back to the races.
Thank you to all who purchased tailgating spaces and General Admission passes and came to enjoy a beautiful fall day in the country.
We hope you enjoyed doing some pre-holiday shopping with our vendors - keep them in mind when you're finishing up those last minute gift items. A full list of vendors is on our website.
Of course we can't have races without the horses.
Our thanks to the owners, trainers, jockeys and the entire army of support staff behind the scenes who made the day of racing possible.
SINCE 1964 the Committee has contributed over $1,150,000 to a variety of community organizations.
This year’s main beneficiary, the Chester County Food Bank, Inc. continues to demonstrate exemplary assistance to the economically challenged in Chester County.
Did you know the Food Bank helps distribute food to over 120 food cupboards and social services agencies throughout Chester County?
And, they conduct multiple programs to encourage eating and cooking fresh and healthy.
We are proud to partner with them and are excited to report we donated $65,000 to the Chester County Food Bank this year!
In addition to our donation to the Chester County Food Bank, the Committee is pleased to support the following organizations:
The Coatesville Youth Initiative
Upland Country Day School
Work to Ride
River Hills Foxhounds
While we are very proud of our charitable donation this year, the unfortunate truth is that hunger and food insecurity continue to be significant challenges for many residents of Chester County.
To help the neediest among us through the holidays we have decided to try and raise some additional funds for the food bank.
We will keep our donation site (https://pahuntcup.org/donate/) on-line until 12/31/2021 so you can donate through the PA Hunt Cup website.
All dollars raised will be donated directly to the food bank.
No donation is too small, and all contributions are greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your continued support of the PA Hunt Cup and the Chester County Food Bank.
With deepest gratitude and best wishes for a happy Holiday Season,
Your Pennsylvania Hunt Cup Committee
