A pair of American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) Foundation fundraisers will bookend the social events calendar at the AAEP’s 61st Annual Convention, taking place Dec. 5-9 in Las Vegas, Nevada, in what annually is the foundation’s most substantial week of fundraising.

The AAEP Foundation Benefit Golf Tournament, hosted and sponsored by Patterson Veterinary, Equine Division, will tee off Dec. 4 at 11:30 a.m. Meanwhile, the 19th Annual AAEP Foundation Celebration, sponsored by Zoetis, will take place Dec. 8 from 6:00-11:00 p.m. All proceeds from these events will support the foundation’s mission to improve the welfare of the horse.

The scramble-style golf tournament will be held at Rhodes Ranch Golf Club, rated a “4-Star Place to Play” by Golf Digest and located 15 minutes from the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Convention Center. The picturesque par-72 course provides a world-class setting for a memorable round of golf, with multiple water features, varying elevations, city and mountain views, and rolling fairways.

The entry fee is $100 per person by Nov. 6 and $125 per person after Nov. 6. The fee includes greens fee, cart, range balls, transportation, post-event reception, and a small donation in your name to the AAEP Foundation. To enter, visit the “Events” page at or call the AAEP Foundation at 859/233-0147 or 800/443-0177 to request an entry form
