This Sunday the harness racing heroes of the 2014 season will be honoured at the United States Harness Writers Association’s Dan Patch Awards Banquet at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel at SeaWorld.

Starting at 6 p.m. the best of the equine performers and human stars of the sport will receive their just accolades and money will also be raised to help two significant charities and an USHWA workshop.

There is a special silent auction held every year at the dinner, and even if you can’t be there you can still bid via the telephone for any of the items you would desire.

The proceeds will go to the Harness Horse Youth Foundation, the Harness Racing Museum and Hall of Fame and to USHWA and their Clyde Hirt Workshop for young journalists.

You can call either 954-654-3757 or 317-908-0029 up until 8 p.m. Sunday to check on your bid and/or raise it up!
