'A Night At The Pavilion' Fundraiser for EHWA

World-renowned tenor Anthony Kearns will perform at "A Night at the Pavilion: A Tribute to Kentucky's Horses," a special benefit for the nonprofit Equine Health and Welfare Alliance (EHWA) on July 10 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.

The event will be held two days before the Summer Yearling Sale at the Fasig-Tipton Company's Sales Pavilion, located at 2400 Newton Pike in Lexington, Ky. (Tel: 859/255-1555).

Proceeds will benefit the EHWA, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for horses. Tickets for the event are $150 per person, $250 per couple, and can be purchased by calling EHWA at 859/227-0879, or by visiting their website.

In addition to Kearns' stunning vocal talents, guests will also be treated to a rare opportunity to sample Kentucky Bourbon produced by signature distilleries: Jim Beam, Four Roses, Maker's Mark, and Heaven Hill.

Governor Steve Beshear and First Lady Jane Beshear will officiate at the event.

"As a horse enthusiast, I'm very pleased to participate in this wonderful event to benefit the EHWA," said Jane Beshear. "I'm looking forward to attending this spectacular musical evening and I encourage others to join us in support of equine health research and education."

"We're privileged to have Kentucky's First Family and one of the world's greatest tenors, Anthony Kearns, join us for what will be our premiere fundraising event this summer," said Frank Marcum, DVM, EHWA founding member and an equine practitioner from Versailles, Ky.

"I'm delighted to perform at this fantastic event which combines two of my greatest passions, music and horses," said Kearns. Kearns, a founding member of The Irish Tenors, noted that Ireland shares a rich history with the Kentucky horse industry.
