The Audrey Grace House in Abilene, Texas.

Below is a letter from Jane Backes.

With great joy I announce the totals for the 13th Annual Audrey Grace Auction. We NETTED (very important term in the Charity business) because there were no expenses with PLEASUREHORSE.COM donating the site and the donors donating the Breedings and Items  – $40,805.00.   This entire amount is paid directly to the care of the children in the Audrey Grace House, Abilene, TX.  Not one dime is taken out to pay a salary or operating expense for hosting the Auction.
Each year, regardless of the economy, this auction thrives.  It is a true reflection how caring horsemen are for a worthy cause.  I can not do this without all the generous stallion owners and equine businesses giving quality items year after year.  Most of all THANK YOU to Joe and Heidi Zeimentz and Melinda Davison from PLEASUREHORSE.COM and SHOW HORSE TODAY for the great coverage both on their Main page (1 Million views per month)  and their Facebook Page (560,000 likes).  In the day of such great social media, I am proud this auction has always had a home here with my Forum Friends! 
Until next year have a MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY, HEALTHY NEW YEAR!!!!!
-Jane Backes
