The WCAR Annual Winter Fundraiser – Celebrating the Champions – is going to be fabulous! The views of the Santa Rosa Mountains are unbelievable from the courtyard where there will be a cocktail reception and silent auction. Once inside, enjoy delectable cuisine, unique entertainment, dancing and a live auction. Celebrate our West Coast Active Riders and their horses in the Jumper, Hunter and Equitation arenas.

Let’s party!
