A United States Equestrian Team Foundation benefit with the theme of “Solid Gold!” will be staged at the Global Dressage Festival at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, April 12 aimed at raising money to fund American dressage teams in Europe this year.

Equestrian Sport Productions and Wellington Equestrian Partners that own and manage the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center that includes the dressage grounds, are hosting the event at the Global Pavilion at The Stadium complex.

“We are excited to host this benefit for our U.S. Dressage Team,” said Mark Bellissimo, CEO of Equestrian Sport Productions. “We have shown our commitment to the sport of dressage through the Adequan Global Dressage Festival, and this fits perfectly in our goals to help the sport.”

Six-time U.S. Olympian Robert Dover said, “We welcome everyone to this event to help raise money for our U.S. Dressage Team. The tours are imperative for our teams to be competitive in the upcoming world championship, and funding is a must for our teams to be well-prepared. We hope everyone will come out to support our team and have fun at the same time.”

The tours are in preparation for the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Normandy, France.

The benefit is being held in conjunction with the CDIO3* Nations Cup presented by Stillpoint Farm at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival.

Arlene “Tuny” Page and her husband, David, owners of Stillpoint are providing wine for the benefit dinner from David’s legendary cellar.

A live auction will offer a trip to the exclusive Monwana Resort in South Africa, the chance to win a “Day with a Team Rider” as well as a seat next to one of the judges at the following day’s Nations Cup competition.

Monwana Resort owner Eliana Cordia has offered for auction a trip for two to South Africa, which includes a three-day and three-night safari and stay at the luxurious resort.

Dress for the event is “casual to gilded” to fit with the gold theme.

Tickets are available at $200 each or $1,600 for a table of eight. Sponsorship is also available at Silver ($2,500), Gold ($5,000), and Platinum ($10,000) levels.
