I had never seen anything like this before or since. Imagine a blueberry pie being auctioned off for $1,000…yes, all in the name of helping the horses. All in the name of Equine Voices Rescue & Sanctuary.

This Saturday – March 30 – C’mon down to The Very Special Horse Event hosted by Equine Voices.

Where: Brandi Fenton Park – 3482 E. River Road, Tucson
When: 11:30 am to 3:30 pm
Why: To raise funds for rescued horses; admission is $5/pp includes a raffle ticket

Even non horse people like me like this event where I can watch interesting horse demos and learn the horses’ stories and see how they have been rehabilitated; where I can peruse the silent auction items and maybe win a raffle prize; where I can listen to Amber Noorgard/excellent live band; and more. Fun for all ages!
