"In the Pink" Party at AHJF Hunter Classic Spectacular of Palm Beach a Huge Success

Wellington, FL - February 25, 2008 - The American Hunter Jumper Foundation (AHJF) hosted the fabulous "In the Pink" party on Saturday evening, February 23, 2008. The party was held in the International Club at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center.

Guests arrived decked out in every shade of pink to watch the AHJF Hunter Classic Spectacular of Palm Beach, an event that showcases the top national amateur, junior, and professional show hunter riders.

The International Club was sold out for the evening, making it one of the most successful fundraisers in the AHJF's history. The money raised from the tables goes towards the non-profit AHJF's programs, such as the Emergency Relief Fund, educational programs, and the World Championship Hunter Rider program.

The pink theme was consistent throughout the International Club stunning orchids on every table, and the pink Rose champagne offered to guests as they arrived. The delectable food included butler-passed hors d'oeuvres, carving stations with filet of beef and rack of lamb, and a pasta station. For dessert, guests were treated to pink custard tarts with fresh raspberries and strawberries. As a special thank you, sponsor CM Hadfield's presented each guest with a parting gift of gourmet chocolates. The Equestrian Club by Tavern on the Green provided the catering.
