Congress Goes Pink This Saturday
by Tracy Bidwell, OQHA
Each year, the Congress Queen Contest at the All American Quarter Horse Congress hosts several events to benefit cancer survivors, including an auction during the Equine Chronicle Congress Masters Event.
This year, the Congress Queen Contest is sponsoring the third annual Congress Goes Pink day on Saturday, October 20th. Everyone, from judges and ring stewards to spectators and exhibitors are encouraged to wear pink in support of cancer patients, survivors and their families.
The Congress Queen’s Program has raised more than $200,000 to date benefitting cancer survivors. This year, the program is supporting a Columbus-based organization, Nellie’s Catwalk For Kids. Founded in 2007, their main fundraiser is a fashion show that now features 300 models, and 3,000 guests, which promotes awareness of childhood cancer to the community.
NC4K works year-round to help pediatric cancer patients and their families both financially and emotionally with rent/mortgage support, gas cards, meals, family outings, crafts and more.
The All American Quarter Horse Congress and Congress Queen’s Contest is proud to support Nellie’s Catwalk For Kids and pediatric cancer patients, survivors and their families throughout the world.
