Liz’s Kids Show provides funding for local children




SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. – The 2019 Liz’s Kids Horse Show was a success in raising money for several local non-profits and schools benefitting children in the Middle Tennessee community.  The show, named in honor of Liz Gassaway who is successfully battling cancer, was utilized to raise money for special needs children which continue to be so near and dear to Gassaway’s heart.

The show, held at Calsonic Arena in November provided funding for Horse Play in Tullahoma, Tenn. and Great Strides in Shelbyville for their therapeutic riding programs. In addition to these non-profits schools in Franklin County, Coffee County and Bedford County received funds to help with their special reading and training programs.

“I want to thank everyone involved with last year’s show, from the sponsors to the workers. Their contributions are what provides our horse shows the ability to spread the love of our horse,” said organizer Jerry Harris. The 2020 Liz’s Kids show will be held July 18th at the Coffee County Fairgrounds in Manchester. Johnny Puckett will judge the horse show.
