Thank you, cowboys and cowgirls

The Kachemak Bay Equestrian Association (KBEA) gives a huge thank you to all the cowboys and cowgirls who made our Fifth Annual Cowboy Cabaret a wonderful success.

Alices Champagne Palace served a great Chuck Wagon Supper; the dessert auction and silent auction brought in much need funds for our $30,000 annual payment.

As usual, the generosity of the business and private donors was awesome. We couldnt have done it without Cowboy Mark Marette, emcee extraordinaire and exceptional poet; Tim Quinns music experience; Jackie Eisenberg, Cindy Birkhimer, Chris Day, Sandy Arndt, Renee Eidem, Katie Matthews and Lynn Pattons work on the silent auction; Jeanie Fabichs help collecting the money; and the list goes on to all who helped to bring KBEAs biggest fund raiser of the year together.

We especially enjoyed the Homer Ukulele Societys renditions of favorite Western music. Of course it couldnt be a Cabaret without the incredible poets and musicians. These funds go to the purchase of the land for beautiful Cottonwood Horse Park at 1.7 mile East End Road. Join us for our annual Memorial Day Celebration of horses and riders on May 28.

Happy trails,

Roberta Highland, president
