Spring horse show and benefit for Mississippi College Equestrian Team

If your family is looking for something to do this weekend, go see the Spring Horse Show and Benefit for the award-winning Mississippi College Equestrian Team. It’s on April 13-14 at Providence Hill Farm in Jackson.

Spring Luncheon and Silent Auction are 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Sunday, with Hunter Derby at 1 p.m. Tickets for lunch are $35 a person. The money goes to the MC Equestrian Team. Check out some of the following items in the Silent Auction:

Item # 1:

A 2 night stay in our “Love Me Tender” Suites, which is a 4 room suite dedicated to Elvis Presley (he stayed here during the summers in the 50″s).  It is 2200 sq ft, it has 3 bedrooms and a hospitality room.  I can match that up with a golf package; I will ask Jimmy F at the Golf Course how many rounds he can give me with this package.  The estimated value of this package will be $2600.00.  If any of you want to see our hotel, you can go to www.gulfhillshotel.com.  I am sure that many people you all do business with has been here and have played golf here, and can also appreciate our downtown area.  Perhaps some of you have been here yourselves. Contact is Becky Bartles.  Donor is Gulf Hills Hotel, attn:___________, address & phone no.

Item # 2:

“An Old Fort Bayou Getaway”

One night for 2 at Gulf Hills, Kayak rentals for 2 at the Kayak Shed from South Coast Paddling Company, and Dinner at the famous Shed BBQ and Blues Joint.  Value starts at $160

This package is pretty neat because they bring the kayaks to the hotel and we launch you here, or at The Shed.  You can paddle upstream or downstream, and when you get to the Shed, they will pick up your kayaks there.  Then you can eat and listen to the live music as long as you wish!
