Live Show Benefit Winners from 2016


We’re getting some late news from 2016 Live Show Benefits that we wanted to share:

Winter Festivus


Renata Z - Chase winner from Winter Festivus - 2016


Meet Renata Z., lucky winner of the Chase model from Winter Festivus (held Dec. 11 in California). Winter Festivus was a packed house and a full day. The show hosted several raffles and many happy winners! The show also raised $680 for the local animal shelter, as well as additional donations of food and toys brought in by the showers for the San Martin Animal Shelter!

Silver Spur Live on the Bayou

Even after two major set-backs to the show, Silver Spur Live on the Bayou was a major success! Due to no fault of the show holders, we lost our venue about 6 weeks before the show. The show was advertised as a fundraiser for the Cal-Cam 4H Club, and with the help of the 4H director, a local hotel generously allowed us to use their ballroom for our show (yes, we still had to pay for it, but at a greatly reduced rate)! Our second set-back was that the hotel did not have tables and we had to do some scrambling to find someone with enough tables that we could borrow & then had to get them to the hotel! Thank goodness for all those young backs & helping hands of the 4H club & that I own a horse trailer ;-)

SS Live 5

The show was so large, they took over the hallway!

We had 31 entries with 4 proxies! I had to actually close entries due to the limited space. We were tight, but everyone was so excited to simply get to show (having the show in a hotel was an added plus to many of the showers who took advantage of the reduced rate the hotel gave for show contestants)! The competition was intense & the tables where full!

Even the Performance Division was HUGE! This is just part of the judge-off for the CM/AR Western Division! The prizes were super nice!!

We had 7 entries in our Youth show with 3 youths opting to show in the OPEN Division instead of the youth :-) How cool is that (all three of these girls have shown at SSL previously & are moving up way before they would have been forced out of the Youth Division)! Here's a pic of some of the youths getting ready! Notice, this is the entry way to the ballroom of the hotel - we took over every available space we could ;-)

We gave the matte Liam away in a Youth Only drawing & the glossy Liam was auctioned off in a Silent Auction with the proceeds going to the show. The winner of CHASE was Sara B. Our show made a profit of $418, even after having to pay for the show hall! This was donated to the Cal-Cam Parish 4H Horse Club! Reported by Charlotte D. Martin

Midwest Model Mania


Jeni Lambert - Chase

Midwest Model Mania was a big success this year. We hosted 22 participants and everyone was very excited about the opportunity to be included in the raffle. The winner of our Chase model as Jennifer L. We appreciated being part of the Live Benefit Program this year! Reported by Marilou Mol.

I'd like to show someday too, but none of my models are LSQ and I'm not gonna spend several Benjamins to buy a showable model, or anything fancy. (to much cash) But showing does seem fun. :)
