SBOA Awards Banquet Details

Published: December 14, 2012 11:20 am EST

The Standardbred Breeders of Ontario Association (SBOA) has announced that its annual awards banquet will return to the same Toronto location that earned rave reviews from attendees in 2012.

The event is set for Saturday, January 19, 2013 and will again feature the hospitality of the Sheraton Toronto Airport Hotel and Conference Centre, a well-appointed venue known widely for its fine cuisine.

“In spite of the fact that our industry has faced and continues to face unprecedented challenges, the SBOA Board felt it was important that we acknowledge the breeders of the outstanding Ontario Sires Stakes performers of 2012,” said SBOA President Anna Meyers.

Hosted once more by popular media personality Greg Blanchard, the banquet evening will also feature competitive entertainment in the form of the regular Stallion Auction and the ever-popular Silent Auction.

Directors are busy now assembling a tantalizing list of offerings for the Silent Auction. If you would like to help by donating to this fundraiser for SBOA, please contact Administrator Aimee Adams at 519-856-4431.

Especially welcome are such items as: tickets to sporting events, industry services, theatre tickets, gift baskets, horse-related jewellery or gifts, restaurant gift certificates, and recreational or travel packages.

“We appreciate the ongoing support we have received within the industry and extend to all friends of racing a special invitation to join us for another memorable evening,” Meyers said.

The organization’s Annual General Meeting will take place at 5:00 p.m., followed by Cocktails at 5:30 p.m. and Dinner at 6:30 p.m.

Tickets are $60 each and can be reserved from Aimee Adams at [email protected].
