Dan Patch Awards Silent Auction to Benefit HHYF, USHWA Youth Programs

The Dan Patch Awards Dinner is rapidly approaching and along with it, the annual silent auction held in conjunction with the evening’s festivities. The Harness Horse Youth Foundation and United States Harness Writers Association industry outreach programs will benefit from the proceeds.

Due to popular demand, four exclusive items will be offered only at the dinner: 1) 2 bottles of Hambletonian champagne and 2 flutes; 2) an antique hitched pedal horse; 3) a playful foal and dam statue; 4) Siegelman Stable collection consisting of a black tee and black/tan cap. Bidding on these items will take place via clipboard throughout the evening and will conclude at 10PM. Successful bidders must make arrangements for pick up of these items prior to the conclusion of the awards presentation.

For those not attending the dinner,  the all-inclusive online portion of the auction features over 30 lots including some great items. Please note that all bidders must register online at 32auctions.com in order to participate. Bidding starts on Sunday, February 18 at 9AM ET and concludes on Sunday, February 25 at 8:30PM ET. Successful bidders will be notified via text or email and payments should be directed through USHWA.

Auction items may be viewed beginning on February 16th using this link: https://www.32auctions.com/2024HHYFUSHWA

“Our auction this year has some unusual items and not exclusively for the horse crowd. We hope that individuals will take time to browse and bid often given that this is an important fundraiser for both organizations,” explained Ellen Taylor, HHYF Executive Director and Auction chair.
