- Kiawah Cup Island Beach Race – Kiawah Island, SC
Saturday March 25, 2017Join us for the *Kiawah Cup*, a special Marsh Tacky beach race fundraiser on Kiawah Island supporting the Carolina Marsh Tacky Association and Kiawah Cares. The race will be held on Saturday March 25, 2017 at 1:00PM. It is a straight race for 250 yards. Kiawah Cares is a 501(c)3 outreach group that supports programs for Sea Island seniors,
students, and the underprivileged. Proceeds from the event will benefit the
community outreach program and a portion of the ticket sales will go to the
Carolina Marsh Tacky Association.
Marsh Tacky Owners – Please consider entering a horse in the race. This is great exposure for the association and it will present our wonderful Marsh Tacky horses to a
new audience. Horses entered in the race must be registered Marsh Tackies and riders must be at least 16 years old. Space is limited for the Kiawah race so a set number of tickets to the event will be sold. However, each rider will receive free entry and 3 complimentary tickets that will include the reception after the race. Email Jackie McFadden at email@example.com if you are interested in entering a horse in the race.
Volunteers are needed to assist with the CMTA newsletter and promotional events. Please contact us if you would like to help.
