A BIG Vanguard Landing THANK YOU to ALL who made our 7Th Annual Hearts & Hoofbeats a great Success!

On Saturday, October 23rd, our wonderful guests and volunteers enjoyed a perfect fall evening at the gorgeous Culpepper Barn in Pungo in Virginia Beach!

We were so excited to have our Signature Event after taking a year off due to state restrictions for Covid!

Guests enjoyed seeing some classic cars, perusing the amazing Silent Auction while filling their bags with treats from the Popcorn Bar! Sweetwater Cuisine offered appetizers on trays and two delicious food stations! The Black Moon Tonic Band from Northern Virginia provided a musical backdrop that everyone enjoyed listening to and dancing to! We even had our very own “Elvis” with Chad Jackson performing a fun dance number to kick-off our “Jailhouse” activity!

The weather was beautiful, and everyone had both indoor and outdoor spaces to enjoy – a favorite being the rocking chairs on the front porch!  Our dedicated volunteers, along with our Sponsors, Shining Star Donors and attendees made this event a very successful one to support the mission of Vanguard Landing!

Plans for our 2022 event are already underway!
