Hunt Ball and Silent Auction

Every year on the Saturday before Thanksgiving, Wentworth Hunt members and guests change out of their stock ties and hunt coats and into their ball gowns and tuxedos for a night of dinner, dancing and revelry! Our annual hunt ball gives members a chance to socialize, exchange fun and often very funny hunting (and just sometimes, non-hunting) stories, and bid for items in the silent auction, 100% of whose proceeds go to our hunt and hounds.

Awards are given, along with colors and buttons, and many thank-yous spoken to our wonderful masters, staff, and volunteers. This is an event that brings us together as a community and reminds us of the joy of this wonderful sport and the camaraderie and friendships it brings!

It’s All About the Hounds

You’ve heard it before: No hounds, no hunt. While we all LOVE our hunt horses, it’s the hounds not the horses that make this such a spectacular sport. To keep our hounds happy, healthy, and well set in kibble, each year Wentworth Hunt hosts a Silent Auction at the Hunt Ball. 100% of our Silent Auction proceeds go to support our hunt and our beloved hounds.

Thank you members and supporters of Wentworth Hunt for your bids and contributions over the years!

As an all-volunteer, non-profit organization, we could not continue without all of you! From the bottom of our human, canine, and equine hearts, we thank you!
