Community pitches in


The Trancas Riders and Ropers 34th annual Horse Fair/Swap Meet held this past Saturday at the Malibu Civic Center was extremely successful. We were very fortunate to receive some wonderful support for our fundraising raffle from the following local merchants: Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, Casa Escobar, Calabasas Saddlery, Calvin Nursery, Consentino’s Florists, Coral Beach Cantina, Duke’s Restaurant, European Equestrian Supply, European Shoe Repair, Geoffrey’s Restaurant, Guido’s Ristorante, HOWS Trancas Market, Malibu Lumber, Malibu Seafood, Malibu Village Wines, Malibu Yogurt, Red Barn Feed and Saddlery, Saddlepeak Lodge, West Valley Horse Center and Zooma Sushi. The raffle proceeds will be used to provide some much needed resources for the local equestrian youth and we want to publicly thank these fine establishments for being such a credit to their community. In addition, Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky and the entire Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors generously provided us with all of the necessary support that we needed. The Malibu Chamber of Commerce reached out to their entire membership on our behalf, The Malibu Times provided us with great articles, the TR&R volunteers worked around the clock and, most importantly, we want to extend our heartfelt thanks to all of the local celebrities and citizens who helped insure the great success of this very important event.
