Berkshire Humane Society Plans Horse Show, Car Raffle
LENOX, Mass. — Berkshire Humane Society will hold its 22nd annual Benefit Horse Show on Sunday, Aug. 24, at Overmeade Farm.
This show is the longest -standing benefit horse show in Berkshire County. Sally and Ken Hart will host the show, which provides an excellent opportunity for the shelter to host a quality Western New England Professional Horseman’s Association-recognized competition for riders and spectators while at the same time raising much needed funds to support the mission and work of BHS.
More than 30 classes will be offered for riders ranging from youngsters in lead line classes to advanced junior and adult medal classes. Karen von Bachelle of South Windsor, Conn., is the judge for the day. Ribbons and prizes will be awarded to riders. BHS merchandise will be for sale as well as great eating from the food booth.
In addition, BHS has teamed up again with Haddad Subaru of Pittsfield to raffle off a new 2015 Subaru Forester. Last year’s raffle raised over $30,000 for the shelter – and that money went a long way in helping so many animals find new and loving homes. This year Haddad is including a six-year, 100,000-mile warranty, which is valued at $2,000, bringing the total package of this raffle up to $29,000.
Tickets are just $40 each or three for $100. The raffle will be held on Saturday, Oct. 18, at Haddad Subaru on East Street in Pittsfield. The winner need not be present. Only 2,100 tickets will be sold.
Tickets are available at BHS on 214 Barker Road in Pittsfield or Purradise on 301 Stockbridge in Great Barrington.
