(23-MAY-2018) AURORA, COLO. — The Arabian Horse Association’s (AHA) Market, Development and Promotion (MDP) committee is pleased to announce that it will participate in the William Shatner (Captain Kirk) Annual Priceline.com Hollywood Charity Horse Show presented by Wells Fargo online auction on June 2, 2018, with a new “Goldie” through the Arabian Horses for Humanity project!
Each year Bill (William) Shatner, a horseman himself, brings his entertainment friends into the horse world with this charity event. His online
auction items raise thousands of dollars for the charities he has selected and brings awareness to the community of the thrill of equestrian sport.
MDP has garnered the sponsorship of FinListics Solutions (www.finlistics.com), an Atlanta based sales enablement company to engage the talents of Jaime Tovar, an artist out of Ft. Worth, Texas, to paint a statue with a Star Trek theme. The horse will be autographed by Mr. Shatner and will be available in the online auction to all the “Trekkies” out there! The horse, appropriately named “Galaxy”, will be highlighted by Mr. Shatner and is expected to be a high seller at his June 2 event.
Thanks to Trevor Miller for facilitating the introduction to Mr. Shatner and making this possible. Trevor will be at the event with an Arabian horse to carry the flag in opening ceremonies. This is a grand opportunity to showcase the Arabian horse to a new audience. AHA’s President, Nancy Harvey, will also be present to represent our breed. For anyone living near the Burbank, Calif. area, please join the party and help introduce the Arabian horse to a new crowd!
The online silent auction started April 30 and will run through June 3. To bid online, purchase an event ticket or for more information about the event, visit www.horseshow.org.
Arabian Horses for Humanity is a project that began in the Fall of 2016. The Arabian Horse Association’s Market, Development and Promotion committee was looking for a way to utilize the Arabian horse as an ambassador while uniting communities through a common philanthropic interest.
