The date this year will be
Saturday, May 17th, 2014.
Sign Up will begin at 8:00 a.m. at Vincent Hill Station Restaurant & Saloon, located at 553 W. Sierra Highway, Acton, CA 93510. There will be easy horse trailer parking across Sierra Highway at the VHS Arena.
The event called Hogs & Horses – Ride for Our Troops was originally organized when some long time Acton, CA residents started talking about finding a way to show their appreciation and respect for the men and women who volunteer to serve in our country’s armed forces.
The idea took root and quickly developed into the “Hogs & Horses” ride, with friends and associates eagerly joining in to help organize, donate, volunteer and participate.
In the past Hogs & Horses has raised funds for a terrific organization called The Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund, and while we continue to support and salute this fine organization, the H&H board has become aware of a need closer to home.
Once again the proceeds for this year’s event will benefit the Antelope Valley Veteran’s Outreach through The Grace Resource Center.
The funds will be earmarked for providing food, clothing, medical care, counseling, job placement, and more for our men and women who are in need of these basic services, after returning from their service.
Our goal remains the same: Raise awareness, raise money, show our support and respect for our troops, and have a great time while we are doing it!
After the ride(s), there will be auctions, raffles, vendors, lunch, live entertainment including our headliners The Runaway Train Band, and much more.
We have vendor spots available for a small $20. donation. We are also seeking additional sponsors to help make this year’s event a success.
To participate in the event, please arrive early enough to complete the Registration & Release form, along with your tax deductible donation in cash or check made out to: Hogs & Horses.
$25. Non Riders
$15. Lunch Only
Our new Board President Joe Probst, and our dedicated Board Members and Volunteers invite Active US Military with Valid ID to please join us as our honored guests.
