USET Foundation to host benefit Fiesta at Del Mar National Horse Show

The United States Equestrian Team Foundation recently announced that it will be hosting a benefit in support of the United States Equestrian Olympic Team during the 2012 Del Mar National Horse Show. On Friday, May 4, guests are invited to join the Foundation for Margaritas, Fiesta Food, and Lively Music at Barn W of the Del Mar Fairgrounds. The event will get underway at 6:30 p.m, following the Olympic Show Jumping Observation Event.

Robin Parsky, USET Foundation trustee and co-chair of the Development Committee, will be chairing the event with her husband Gerry Parsky.

“We often host USET Foundation Fundraisers in California, so we were looking for this opportunity to support the team, and this is perfect timing,” she explained. “We will be inviting the exhibitors, horse owners, and USET Gold Medal Members from the West Coast. The Del Mar National is the largest and most prestigious show in California, so this is a great opportunity for us to get together and help raise money for the team.”

“It’s the weekend of Cinco de Mayo, and we are close to the border, so we decided to make it a really fun event with margaritas and taco stations,” continued Parsky. “It will be held in a great barn close to the jumping arena. There will be a DJ and it will all be decorated in fiesta style.”

In addition to the Parskys, the organizing committee includes Pam and Bob Buie, Cathy and Dave Colmar, Signe Ostby and Scott Cook, Penny and Jim Coulter, George and Kelly Davis, Gail Gregson, Pat and Michael Hayward, Jami and Klaus Heidegger, Sarah and Jon Kelly, Shari and Herb Lurie, Gwendolyn and Jay Meyer, George H. Morris, Linda Starkman and Pam Theodosakis.
