TN Equine Grand Prix
Brownland Farm and Tennessee Equine Hospital joined forces to bring nationally recognized horses and riders to Franklin, TN on Saturday April 26, 2014 for the fifth annual Tennessee Equine Grand Prix. The Grand Prix will be the highlight of the Brownland Farm Spring II USEF AA rated and USEF Jumper Level 4 horse show.
In years past, this event has raised money for the Williamson County Chamber of Commerce, but this year money raised will go to help fund the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital Vanderbilt at Williamson Medical Center, slated to open early next year.
“Although we have been thrilled to raise money for the Williamson County Chamber of Commerce with our past events, being able to direct the 2014 fundraising efforts to this amazing pediatric hospital, coming to our community next year, is an opportunity for every parent who has had a personal experience there to say thank you,” said Monty McInturff, DVM, owner of Tennessee Equine Hospital.
Don Webb, CEO of Williamson Medical Center, said he couldn’t think of a better way to kick start the fundraising efforts for the new children’s hospital than with a hometown event. “We are excited to be working with the Tennessee Equine Hospital on this Grand Prix event and look forward to being able to get the word out to our community about this wonderful new facility coming to the WMC campus,” Webb said. “We are also grateful to be named the beneficiary and will put the money to good use caring for the children of this and surrounding communities.”
