The United States Equestrian Team Foundation is pleased to recognize the generous support of their Gold Medal Club (GMC) members. The Gold Medal Club is the lifeblood of the USET Foundation, accounting for nearly 80% of individual contributions each year and is comprised of members who contribute a minimum of $1,000 or more annually.
On Monday, June 20, 2016, the USET Foundation hosted the Gold Medal Club Reception at Hamilton Farm, where they recognized GMC Members that have made the USET Foundation a priority in their charitable giving for 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 and 35 years.
The GMC members have been an essential source of support to the U.S. equestrian teams. For a remarkable 35 years, Helen K. Groves has generously pledged her support to the USET Foundation. She joins the hallowed ranks of Fran Steinwedell, who was the Foundation’s first Gold Medal Club member to reach the truly incredible milestone in 2013.
For an impressive 30 years, the W.J. Barney Foundation, Mrs. L.E. MacElree (Jane) and Hedda Windisch von Goeben have also been loyal patrons of the Gold Medal Club.
Recognition for 25 years of continued generous support went to Mr.and Mrs. Michael Matz and George H. Morris.
The 20-year supporters honored at the reception were the California Dressage Society (Carmel Valley), Dr. Mary Delton & Dr. Robert Boeckman, Mr. & Mrs. Joseph Duke, Mr. & Mrs. Gerald Parsky, Mr. & Mrs. Mark P. Piwowar, Eric L. Straus and J. Willard Thompson.
Recognition for 15 years of giving to the USET Foundation was given to, Mr. & Mrs. Mark W. Harms, Elizabeth L. Johnson, Deborah Anne Levy, Elaine C. Ludwig, Helene J. Magill (Danny), Mr. & Mrs. Southwood Morcott, Mr. & Mrs. J. David Page, the Peapack-Gladstone Bank, Rosalie & Bethany Peslar, Mr. & Mrs. Carl Segal, H. Donnan Sharp and Nancy Hamill Winter.
For the last 10 years, the following GMC members have also continued to generously support the USET Foundation: Bryan L. Baldwin, Barbara M. Bays, Brenda Bocina Curnin, Mr. & Mrs. Murray Kessler, Suzanne Marquard, Mr. & Mrs. Michael O. Page and the Jesse & Caryl Philips Foundation.
The USET Foundation would not be able to achieve their mission to support the competition, training, coaching, travel and educational needs of America’s elite and developing international, high-performance horses and athletes in partnership with the United States Equestrian Federation without the generous support of each and every member of the Gold Medal Club.
