Barbara Windom legacy sponsors
At the 2017 Gold Rush Classic show a group of Gold Rush Classic exhibitors, sponsors and volunteers came together to work on a plan to generate a consistent sponsorship fund for this show. The goal became to create a sponsorship level and commitment of at least ten sponsors who would commit to $2500.00 annually for a minimum of three years, or a lump sum of $7500.00. From this idea the “Barbara Windom Legacy Sponsorship” was born. They had a goal of gathering ten sponsors within a month or so after the show.
Saturday morning conversations were started and the first few “Legacy Sponsors” came forward. By that evening’s celebration, which was held in Barbara’s honor, the ten sponsors had stepped forward and signed up for this sponsorship of Barbara’s favorite show. When the announcement was made during the toast to her during the celebration, six more sponsors expressed their commitment. This brought the first years total to sixteen Legacy sponsors, representing $120,000.00 of sponsorship monies dedicated to the Gold Rush Classic in honor of Barbara Windom over the next three years.
We hope these Legacy sponsorships will continue on for many years to help support the Gold Rush Classic and highlighting the Peruvian horse in this great promotional venue at the South Point Arena & Event Center in Las Vegas, where breeders and owners are able to come together to compete from across North America. A big thank you is due to Ben Sawatsky for spearheading this effort to honor Barbara’s legacy and her commitment to the Gold Rush show.
