In the Wild Pink World, Earl Grey is not a tea. He’s a man from Red Deer County, and we love him to bits. Earl came into our lives when he won 2 days of free riding from a draw we made some time before the 2014 tour.
Earl was quite excited about this … but even so, he couldn’t bring himself to come on a fundraiser without raising some funds. (Now don’t misunderstand: we often get winners who decide to go out and raise funds. After all, this is about money to conquer breast cancer … and many of our winners get that. But Earl outdid them all!) Never before have we had a winner contribute so much! Earl raised $1,885!
Not only was he a stellar fundraiser, but Earl was also invaluable on the trail. He never failed to help a rider with a problem … a rider in distress … a horse in distress … anything. Earl was there and helping. And come evening around the campfire, he was pretty entertaining too! It seems Earl is never at a loss for words. *sly little grin*
I hear Earl’s been out riding the Ya Ha Tinda with some of our other Pinksters this fall. I hope that means he’s planning to join us again next year!
