Central Kentucky Riding for Hope (CKRH), a nonprofit that offers a variety of equine-assisted therapies and activities for people of all ages, is holding its 20th annual gala fundraiser on Saturday, June 17 at Fasig-Tipton in Lexington, Kentucky, the organization said in a release Wednesday.
Tickets remain for the event, which include a silent and a live auction. The highest bidders earn the sponsorship of CKRH participants and their equine partners.
“Roaring 20th” is the theme of Night of the Stars, which begins at 6 p.m. at Fasig-Tipton, the racehorse auction company located at 2400 Newtown Pike in Lexington. Cocktail attire or Roaring 20s-themed costumes are suggested.
“Night of the Stars welcomes some 500 guests for one of the most entertaining and rewarding fundraisers of the year in Lexington,” CKRH Executive Director Pat Kline said. “CKRH is proud to have helped thousands of people thanks to our beloved therapy horses, who have a magical ability to communicate with people and produce a positive response be it physical or emotional. Now in its 20th year, Night of the Stars wouldn't be possible without strong community support, especially from the Thoroughbred industry.”
