Benefit auction held for Nance Stables




By Chrystal Abernathy

SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. — Pleasant Valley Farms hosted a benefit auction to help Keith Nance Stables following the devastating fire that took place Sept. 5 on Crane Farms. Twenty-three horses were lost in the fire along with almost all barn items. 

Andy Davis, Dustin Smith and Chris Elliot organized the benefit, which included a barbecue lunch provided by Whitt’s. A live auction followed the lunch and included many items including a Polaris Ranger, WGC stud fees and an autographed guitar by Sheryl Crow.

The Nance Stables family expressed the following note of appreciation following the benefit: “Thanks you to everyone who called, sent cards, messages and that came out and supported the benefit. A special thank you goes out to all of the people who helped make the auction possible, and worked to make it a success. 
“Also, we would like to thank everyone who has lent a helping hand after this tragedy. There is no way that we could have made it through this tragic time without the help and support from our family, friends, and just the good people that are in this industry.”
