Equine Advocates 2024 Gala Fundraiser

Equine Advocates 23rd Annual Gala promises to be one of the most anticipated events in upstate New York this fall.
On Saturday, September 28, 2024, Darlene Love will perform her show ‘Love Songs’ live at PS21: Center for Contemporary Performance — an amazing and intimate 300-Seat Open-Air Pavilion Theater in Chatham, NY.

Among the numerous awards and accolades Darlene Love has been honored with over the years is her historic induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Prior to the performance, VIP ticket holders and Sponsors will attend an outdoor cocktail party at
Equine Advocates Rescue & Sanctuary, conveniently located just one mile from the venue.

The proceeds from this fundraiser will go toward the care of the 79 rescued horses, ponies, donkeys, and mules, as well as the six retired U.S. Army Caisson Horses who call the Sanctuary home. The funds will also go toward the rescue of other equines in jeopardy.
