Chip In for Kevin at Blenheim EquiSports

Sep 10, 2019 | Announcements, Featured

As the horse community pulls together for those in need, Blenheim EquiSports and the Wasserman Foundation would like to join in and be a part of the fundraising efforts for Kevin Babington.

Since 2016, Blenheim EquiSports has offered the Chip in for Charity program, where class winners receive a “charity chip” and then have the choice of redeeming a first place prize or donating the chip to one of the chosen charities.

Blenheim EquiSports will contribute $5 for each chip redeemed to the Kevin Babington Rehabilitation Fund, which will also be matched by the Wasserman Foundation, long-time supporters of the Chip in for Charity Program.

During this week’s Blenheim Fall Tournament and next week’s International Jumping Festival, the show office will have a donation box dedicated to the Kevin Babington Rehabilitation Fund. The show office will also accept any additional donations.

Thank you in advance for your consideration to a fellow horseman.

In 1952, Lew and Edie Wasserman created the Wasserman Foundation from funds garnered through Mr. Wasserman’s decades of leadership at MCA/Universal.

The Foundation currently funds in the areas of education, arts & culture, health, service and global initiatives.
