EEI Charity Fundraising Dinner
The EEI Charity Fundraising Dinner has become an annual must-attend event benefitting the LRK3DE official charity of the year. The 2019 Land Rover Kentucky Three-Day Event Official Charity is Bluegrass Land Conservancy, the largest accredited land trust in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
BLC was formed to protect the land in Kentucky’s Bluegrass Region through permanent conservation easements. Since 1998, Bluegrass Land Conservancy has protected 95 miles of rivers and streams, 21,600 acres of prime farmland soils and soils of statewide importance, 63 farms that contain historic sites, 10.29 miles of scenic byway frontage and over 27,000 acres of 126 farms in 24 counties across the Greater Bluegrass Region.
The 2019 EEI Charity Fundraising Dinner for Bluegrass Land Conservancy is a farm-to-table dinner and equine-themed silent and live auctions (including tickets to the 2020 Kentucky Derby) on Thursday, April 25, after the day’s competition.
