Equest’s kick-off reception was a dreamy affair filled with hope and excitement for this year’s Gala.

Equest CEO Lili Kellogg announced Kathy and Jeromy Fielder as the 2017 Co-Chairs and Lynn and Allan McBee as Honorary Co-Chairs. This year’s theme, “Field of Dreams,” is pure coincidence and so fitting with the Fielders who are enhancing the Gala to a new level.

Equest supporters filled the beautiful, open space of Samuel Lynne Galleries, which they graciously donated along with the wine for the event. Equest’s mini-ambassadors Cisco and Dare made their first gallery debut, stealing the spotlight from the stunning artwork.

Among the excitement, Lili announced that the first Gala sponsor to contribute a minimum of $15,000 or more would receive an original horse photo donated by photographer Laura Cope.
