Gulf Coast Charity Announces Judges



Ben Lee, Executive Director of the Gulf Coast Charity Celebration is pleased to announce the judges for the 5th annual Gulf Coast Charity Horse Show and Music Festival.

The judges are Scott Benham of Ontario, California; Sam Sorrell of Lexington, Kentucky; and Phillip Wilson of Wartrace, Tennessee.

Lee is proud to have such a fine panel of judges presiding over this year’s event.

The 2003 Gulf Coast Charity Horse Show and Music Festival will be held April 24-26 at its new location of Frank Brown Park located in Panama City Beach, Florida. Frank Brown Park is located on Panama City Beach Parkway directly behind the old location, so wherever folks stayed in years past will be convenient for them at the new location on Back Beach Road.

Back by popular demand will be the “Swingin’ Medallions” on Thursday and Friday and “The Fabulous Expressions” on Saturday for your after show entertainment. The “Ivey Brothers” will be playing daily before the show. Wade Henry (a vaudeville act) will be performing before and during the show. the Gulf Coast Charity Celebration is sure everybody will enjoy all of the entertainment that they have lined up for this year’s event.

New this year is the Wine Arbor located behind the Paddock Club where there will be a great wine selection to purchase at prices that are less than anywhere else in town. Take a bottle to your table or enjoy the wine tasting at the Wine Arbor while watching the great Tennessee Walking Horses perform. New also this year is the $1000 champagne class and the adult pony class.

There will be food vendors, merchandise vendors, kiddie rides and more also for your enjoyment. Due to the enormous amount of expense that the show has incurred with the change of location, it is imperative that everyone help us in meeting the March 26, 2003 deadline for ordering and paying for stalls and shavings. The show regrets that if stalls and shavings are not ordered and paid for by the deadline, there may not be space available for those not meeting the deadline. The show will only be able to order the stalls pre-ordered and paid by the March 26, 2003 deadline.
