Proceeds from the event will provide funding for two charities – The Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund (PDJF) and The Jockey Club Safety Net Foundation, which assists riders and others in the industry facing a financial crisis.
“Permanently disabled jockeys depend on the PDJF for financial assistance,” said Nancy LaSala, Executive Director of the PDJF. “The PDJF was established to provide long term assistance to jockeys who have suffered on-track catastrophic injuries. Since its inception in 2006, it has been, and continues to be, challenged to meet its financial goals to meet the day-to-day needs of these men and women. We have great hopes that ‘Jockey for a Cause’ will help provide security for our injured riders and are very appreciative to Jeff for his commitment to these athletes.”
“The Jockey Club Safety Net Foundation helps not only jockeys, but many others in the industry in their time of need,” added Executive Director Nancy Kelly. “Trainers, grooms, exercise riders, hot walkers, farm workers and front office personnel turn to us, and we want to be there to help. ‘Jockey for a Cause’ will help us help those valuable members of the industry.”
Terry Meyocks, National Manager of the Jockeys’ Guild, says the Guild will be strong supporters of the event. “These are two very worthy charities, both committed to take care of jockeys in their time of need. I appreciate the fact that Jeff has stepped up to the plate to bring awareness to the plight of riders, and we at the Guild will do whatever we can to help make this a success.”
“These men and women in the horse industry provide us all great entertainment, and they do it at great risk and sacrifice,” said DeHaven.” This is a way we can pay them back for their great work and enjoy a great party – all at the same time.”
