Wellington, Fla. – Feb. 7, 2020 – Equestrians came out in droves in support of the Kevin Babington Foundation (KBF) Friday, February 7th. The dinner fundraiser, held at White Horse Fashion Cuisine, raised $200,000 and featured a “Drag Break” in which top athletes and industry professionals came together to strut their stuff on the stage. Judges Missy Clark, Lee McKeever, Margie Goldstein-Engle, and Kevin Babington, himself, had a tough choice in awarding top honors as all the acts brought down the house, but after much deliberation, it was Darragh Kerins who took home the title of “Best Queen” with his rendition of “Like a Virgin” by Madonna.
The Kevin Babington Foundation would like to thank all who took the time to come out and support Kevin and his family, and a special thank you to event organizers: Missy Clark, Elizabeth Sponseller, Katy Wingerter, Kristen Amundsen, Jack Morgan, Ava Lindsey, Margo Thomas, Megan Gillard, Maddy Machery, and Juan Gando for hosting at the White Horse.
The KBF would also like to extend it’s most sincere thanks to those who performed: Athena Dion, Darren Graziano, Jon McCrea, Dr. Richard Wheeler, Darragh Kerins, Dr. Robert Brusie, Tom Blankenship, Paul O’Shea, Dr. David Adam, Ronan Mcguigan, Nick Skelton, Maarten Huygens, John Brennan, Roberto Terran, Colin Syquia, and Jimmy Torano for acting as auctioneer.
