Wellington, FL - February 24, 2014 - The 2nd Annual Solid Gold USET Foundation Benefit Dinner is drawing near! The festivities will begin at 6:30 PM in the Global Dressage Facility's VIP tent on Saturday, March 15, 2014. You won't want to miss it!

Gardy Bloemers/Merrill Lynch Wealth Management are sponsoring the cocktail hour. Dave and Tuny Page are providing the wine for this event from their extensive wine collection and Kim and Fred Boyer are providing the wonderful dinner for the evening.
After a ballroom dance demonstration given by professional dancers, our "Prancing with the Stars!" competition will begin. Judges Ellin Dixon Miller, Jane Savoie and Bent Jensen will critique and rank eight couples on their 3 minute performances.

The first auction item is a complete head-to-toe Dressage outfit donated by Charlie Tota of the Dressage Connection and some fabulous jewelry donated by Robert Dover.

The second fabulous auction item will be a "Party Like the Stars!" The winner will be able to party like the stars with their own private yacht that will be ready to take the winner and up to 40 friends on a cruise around Manhattan for an evening of fabulous fun.
