Family Promise has been invited to participate in this event, so please come out to support them! Each charity will choose a celebrity driver and navigator to drive a relay course in a Gator (think fast golf cart). Each charity is paired with a horse and rider from Fox Lea to complete their Ride/ Drive Relay Team. The relay teams will each be timed on the Show Jumping under the Stars course and ranked according to finish times. 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and last place teams will receive prize money and bragging rights!
