2017 Equest Gala: Field of Dreams

Tickets are available now the “Field of Dreams” themed 2017 Equest Gala, an evening of enchantment, where hope is limitless and dreams can come true.

On April 29, Equest will transform the Texas Horse Park into an elegant soiree where supporters, clients, and therapy horses unite to celebrate the achievements of Equest’s 35-year history and to raise money so that Equest can continue its mission to improve lives through the human-horse connection for years to come.

The sumptuous southern chic fundraiser, led by Honorary Co-Chairs Lynn and Allan McBee and Co-Chairs Kathy and Jeromy Fielder, will include gourmet southern cuisine, craft cocktails, live music, and much-desired live and silent auction items.

From Equest CEO Lili Kellogg:

The 2017 Gala is being led by a dream team of two inspirational couples that have great vision, business savvy, and widespread connections. Equest’s 2017 fundraising goal is $300,000 (net), and I’m confident that this powerhouse team will meet if not exceed our expectations. The couples’ magnetism is infectious.

The night will begin when luxury shuttles stocked with beer and wine bring guests from two locations in the Park Cities and Preston Hollow to Texas Horse Park, 304 acres of whispering windswept prairie grass and the grandeur of century-old “trophy trees” under a vast starlit sky. It is no wonder the 2017 Equest Gala is themed Field of Dreams.

Upon arrival at Equest at Texas Horse Park, guests will be greeted by the beloved Equest Mini Ambassadors on the red carpet for a paparazzi moment before enjoying a delightful reception of gourmet bites and craft cocktails. Special exhibitions will showcase the exemplary Equest programs and activities, and guests can tour the immaculate stalls and visit the horses to create their own human-horse connection.

A covered barn will be embellished with ferns and moss, magnolias and green apples, and softly lit candles, creating a dreamlike atmosphere to set the stage for an evening of fantasy including a sit-down gourmet dinner, a powerful presentation by Equest, suspenseful live and silent auction, high-energy entertainment, and much dancing.

The Equest Gala is made possible by its sponsors including Frontier Communications, Republic Beverage and many more.
