Gulf Coast Charity Tries Something New



Released from Sister Milligan and Todd Fisher:

The beach and its flair will host its 16th Annual Gulf Coast Charity Horse Show & Music Festival in Columbia, Tenn., for the 2015 show. Show Manager Todd Fisher says, “We will try it this year and it if works, we may do it again up there. If not, next year we will have it at home at the beach.”

The show is in the process of hiring it’s three judges, for the April 24-25 (two-day) show and finalizing the class sheet and entertainment. Back by popular demand will be Tim “Wild Thang” Lepard and Team Ghost Riders. The popular monkeys riding dogs will be there to entertain the crowd.

One thing we know we want to carry on in the same fashion and style as we have done throughout the years is give our owners, trainers and exhibitors a red carpet, first class ride.

On the hill in front of the concession stand all the way to the entry gate shall be the new “Paddock Club”. This will be reserved seating at tablecloth-covered tables for valued sponsors and Paddock Club patrons, and will include a catered meal each night. Paddock Club patrons will have parking included with their table of six.

Parking around the Paddock Club and area will be  $50 for parking passes (except for RVs) and will be on a first come, first serve basis. Entertainment will be provided prior to the show.

We hope everyone will support and attend the show, buy a table in the Paddock Club, and secure their parking position early! We want to continue this great tradition but cannot do it without the help of everyone with their sponsorship and attendance. For information on sponsorships and table reservations call 850-527-2354, 850-960-3065 or 850-913-9030.
