CONYERS, Ga. (August 30, 2011)—Piedmont Fayette Cancer Center will be the beneficiary of a truly unique event! The Georgia Dressage and Combined Training Association (GDCTA) will show their beautiful horses as riders and their mounts will be Puttin’ On The Pink to vie for “Best in Pink Awards” at their Atlanta National Fall Dressage & CT Schooling Show. In addition, scores of local pleasure riders will be hitting the trail before converging at the Georgia International Horse Park in Conyers, Georgia. All this ‘horse business’ will take place on Saturday, October 15th in partnership with Piedmont Fayette Cancer Center , all to place Pink Kick-Starter™ Kits directly into the hands of newly diagnosed breast cancer patients.
Each and every day millions of women are diagnosed with breast cancer. The voyage through treatment requires perseverance and confidence. Navigating the journey requires organization and structure. A very heartfelt and personal creation by Atlanta artist Tia Lynn, The Pink Kick-Starter™ Kit includes a beautiful hardback organizer, journal, relaxing meditation CD and much, much more all in a specially designed carrying pack. Every page in the organizer is graced with bright, joyful artwork designed to encourage and inspire.
Following the GDCTA Schooling Show, the Puttin on the Pink Party kicks off at 5:00 p.m. Nashville recording artist, David St. Romain, will provide live entertainment and Proof of the Pudding will provide dinner and libations. Attendees can partake of the artists’ show and sale at The Gallery at the Paddock, silent and live auctions, raffles, and more, all while taking pleasure in the beauty of dressage competition or just plain fun of trail riding.
October is breast cancer awareness month and GDCTA members and trail enthusiasts are riding to make a difference in someone’s life.
