Rainbow Jumper Challenge

                    An equestrian evening finished up a winner for Rainbow Babies & Children”s Hospital. The sold-out "Rainbow Jumper Classic" raised more than $175,000 for the specialty medical center, $50,000 of which was from a Calcutta auction featuring bids on horse-and-rider teams over a ten-gate course.
    The setting and the weather were perfect. Tents on the Chagrin Valley Hunt Club grounds sheltered the silent auction and cocktail party prior to the jumping event. More than 375 guests — including Joe Arno and Jerry Kelsheimer from sponsors Collection One Auto Group and Fifth/Third Bank respectively — were each given a chance to win a two-year lease on a luxury SUV as they arrived. Guests could also pony up for a chance to win a lovely, gold-and-diamond bracelet.
    To kick off the event, and remind everyone the purpose of the evening, Jeff Leonard, brother of committee member Donna Schwartz, described the premature birth of his son Jacob, and how the staff at Rainbow helped the 1-1/2 pound infant grow to the 6”4" college student standing next to him.
    Following the Jumper Challenge, guests adjourned to the dining room and terrace for dinner and dancing under a clear, moonlit sky. STORY BY LINDA McMULLEN/PHOTOGRAPHS BY JOHN BASHIAN
