Aiken Volunteer Mounted Unit is hosting a benefit Blue Jean Ball for the Large Animal Rescue Team. Spend an evening of fun, good food and entertainment to help replace the 2 horse trailer/ambulance!

Tickets can be purchased NOW on-line at the Aiken Volunteer Mounted Unit website or mail your check made payable to Aiken Volunteer Mounted Unit, PO Box 5517, Aiken, SC 29804. Businesses or organizations who purchase a table of 8 will receive free advertising at the event. Your $75 ticket includes 2 drink tickets.

Why are hosting this benefit? Many people don’t know our Aiken community has a Large Animal Team and Ambulance. Help us support this team for Aiken and surrounding communities, and remember to call them if you ever need them for your horse or live stock – and know you will never receive a bill!!

The Large Animal Rescue Team, operated by Aiken Public Safety, was started approximately 11 years ago to fill a need at the request of the Aiken equine community. The team currently operates with 30 members of Aiken Public Safety and is the only full-time team operating in South Carolina. The team is on call 24/7 for large animal emergencies in and around Aiken County, and can respond to incidents further away with the appropriate mutual aid requests.

Your support is greatly appreciated. LART does not bill for emergency services. Although the team is operated by Aiken Public Safety, it is primarily funded from the community for all equipment and training needs. The team cannot operate without the gracious support of the Aiken Community.
