Gwen Seaver first became aware of the Backside Learning Center in 2019 when she was invited to attend our annual Benefit for the Backside.
“I was invited to attend the annual fundraiser by a friend. Brook Ledge Horse Transportation sponsors a table each year and they invited me to come sit at their table. It was an entertaining day and interesting to learn about multiple programs that the Backside Learning Center provides for the people that do so much work on the backside of the track.”
Gwen says that she has continued to attend the annual fundraisers each year and always looks forward to attending, but the work of the BLC is what sticks with her.
“I was moved by the educational classes provided for children and adults in tutoring and ESL. The summer camp program is also something we strongly support.”
In April 2022, she attended the first Derby Handicapping Social at the Louisville Thoroughbred Society, and she says that she was very excited to see that partnership created.
“We are happy to be donors throughout the year, not just during fundraising events, as we know there are needs all year long that require funding. We believe every program the Backside Learning Center provides is worthy of our donations and put to very good use. We are excited to continue our support and to see what the future holds for The Backside Learning Center.”
We want to thank Gwen for being such a great supporter of our mission!
