Equine Advocates 2022 Gala Fundraiser

Ailey II, The Next Generation of Dance

Equine Advocates 21st Annual Gala

Sunday, September 18, 2022

Equine Advocates’ 21st Annual Gala promises to be one of the most anticipated events in Upstate New York this Fall. On Sunday, September 18th, Ailey II, the company founded in 1974 by the legendary American choreographer Alvin Ailey, will perform live at PS21: Performance Spaces for the 21st Century—an amazing open-air pavilion dance theater in Chatham, NY.

To add to the excitement, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater company member Constance Stamatiou will guest star to perform one of Ailey’s timeless works, Cry. Prior to the performance, VIP ticket holders will attend an outdoor cocktail party at Equine Advocates Rescue & Sanctuary, which is conveniently located just one mile from the venue.

The proceeds from this fundraiser will go toward the care of the 80 rescued horses, ponies, donkeys, and mules who call the sanctuary home and toward the rescue of other equines in jeopardy.
