The Blue Ridge Hunt held it's fall point to point race and Calcutta dinner to raise money for Blue Ridge Hospice last weekend. Linda's "At the Start" painting was on the cover of the race program and it and her "Dust Devils" painting were auctioned at the dinner to benefit hospice.

The auction was a huge success, with the winning bids well above the estimates. We wish to thank and congratulate the winning bidders for their support of Blue Ridge Hospice. We would also like to thank Melanie Marks of Wiseman & Associates, Co-Chair of the event for getting us involved and for putting on an excellent weekend of events. The weather was perfect and the races were spirited, no horses were injured, and despite a couple of thrown jockeys all went well. Co-Chair Michael Hoffman kept everything running smooth and safe, for more information check this website
