Event: 2018 Blue Jeans & Dreams


 Join us as we raise funds to support our Participant Sponsorship Fund.  This fund enables HETRA to keep our fees as low as possible for our families who may already be overwhelmed by expenses not encountered by the average family.

This Signature Event includes a live and silent auction, BBQ dinner, meet & greet the HETRA horses, and activities into the evening.

We rely on the very generous sponsorships and contributions from our community to host a successful auction to be able to subsidize the cost of our student fees for the entire year. That is significant!  

Local Omaha actor, singer, dancer, and radio personality Dave Wingert will emcee the 2018 Blue Jeans & Dreams.  Get your center stage table reserved today. You wont want to miss the superb energy and frivolity that Dave Wingert exudes.

We hope you will join us in 2018, as a patron, donor, or sponsor. 

Get your reservations today to take advantage of the early pricing!  

General Admission – $65.00 – after April 6 – $75

Reserved Table – $550.00 – after April 6 – $650
