bluhammock music ‘blu’ Party to Benefit Equestrian Aid Foundation and Peace Games

Wellington, FL – February 12, 2007 – bluhammock music is pleased to announce that it has joined with Equestrian Aid Foundation and Peace Games as charitable partners. Proceeds from the sale of tickets for the bluhammock music “blu” party will benefit both organizations.

Equestrian Aid Foundation (EAF) is a nonprofit organization that was established in 1996 by Robert Dover, R. Scot Evans, Eugene Mische, Mason Phelps Jr., Robert Ross and Kim Tudor. The original mission of EAF was to directly support equestrians living with HIV/AIDS, and recently, the giving process has expanded to include all equestrians in need, regardless of the ailment.

Financial support from EAF is given directly to the petitioning equestrian or representative. Funds donated to EAF are used to provide various essentials that might include medical needs, health insurance, food and housing, transportation and more. Restricted funds are also welcome so that equestrian clubs, organizations or individuals who want EAF to be their agent in delivering assistance to a specific beneficiary can be certain that their funds are used only as directed. A variety of events are held each year to support EAF, including the “blu” party, the Sidelines Triathlon on March 24, and the Diva Las Vegas benefit concert at the World Cup on April 20.

Peace Games is an organization devoted to teaching children about creating safe classrooms and communities through skills, knowledge, relationships and opportunities. The program empowers children and adolescents from 4 to 14 years old to reduce youth violence and bring about lasting changes in the process of making schools safer.

The program, which began in 1992, operates in Boston, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Fairbanks, Alaska, with more than 25,000 children participating. Peace Games believes that children are peacemakers, not simply victims, perpetrators or witnesses of violence. Through role-play games and situations, Peace Games shows children how to resolve conflicts without resorting to violence.
