Tweed Valley Equestrian Group is held their annual Breast Cancer Fundraiser again this year, “The Power of Pink Dressage & Show jumping Spectacular” on the 8th & 9th of October 2022. The event now in its 11th year was awarded “Community Event of the Year” by Tweed Shire Council in 2011. So far we have raised just shy of $150,000 dollars for Breast Cancer Research with nearly more than $18000.00 alone in 2020.
TVEG is proud to partner with Tweed and District Showjumping Club for our biggest Dressage and Showjumping Competition of the year including the virtual competition for those who can’t make the original event and also moving the Auction to our own site to make it easier for everyone.
There were over 125 entries with riders coming from Port Macquarie to Brisbane entering last year’s event. We had prizes to the winners in all divisions but also fun prizes for the Pinkest Horse, Pinkest Rider and “Pretty in Pink” best dressed horse and rider in pink. All riders had a fantastic day with smiles everywhere you looked. There was also a large division of junior riders (even a boy or two) and we hope that from a young age we can help them understand the importance of being aware of this disease that affects so many women. Dressage is often a very serious sport, so to see every rider with a splash of pink or more somewhere was fantastic.
Our Showjumping competition boasts a low and very rider friendly Beginner’s or Practice course on the Saturday followed by a great display of jumping talent on the Sunday all flying in pink.
Breast Cancer will touch so many of our lives, family and friends and with equestrian being mainly dominated by women; we thought this event is a perfect way to raise awareness and a fun way to raise money for such a worthy cause.
Sponsorship to our event gives you exposure via our event programme, website, Facebook page (783 followers!) https://www.facebook.com/tweedvalleyequestriangroup/ , Club Newsletter, media releases and announcing over the PA on the day. Any special offers that you would like to promote can be advertised also.
In 2018 we added the inaugural Power of Pink Dinner… stay tuned for details for the 2020 event.
With excitement building for this year’s event already, we’re aiming for twenty thousand dollars to donate.
