Journey into the Field of Dreams at the 2017 Equest Gala. The sumptuous southern-chic fundraiser, led by Honorary Co-Chairs Lynn and Allan McBee and Co-Chairs Kathy Fielder and Jeromy Fielder, will include gourmet southern cuisine, craft cocktails, live music, and much-desired live and silent auction items. The elegant soiree is for supporters, clients, and therapy horses to unite and celebrate the achievements of Equest’s three-decade history, and to raise money so that Equest can continue its mission to improve lives through the human-horse connection for years to come.
