Dreams Do Come True

Angela Carte (in the middle) was surrounded
by supporters the whole evening.

Last night Napa Valley Horse Rescue had their first fundraiser. Founder Angela Carte has been rescuing horses for ten years. Last year she rescued 75 horses from slaughter. Her dream is to start a therapeutic riding program for terminally ill children. The fundraiser was to make that dream come true. She picked the perfect place for her first fundraiser; The Black Stallion Winery in Napa. I'd never been there before and was happily surprised by the warm and welcoming atmosphere. The rooms filled with horse art of different kinds; old saddles, equipment, paintings, pictures and statues.

The event was well organized. Everything from the logistics, the live and silent auctions, the food, wine and music was well thought out. I believe that all guests finished the evening with a good, warm feeling in their heart and Napa Valley Horse Rescue got some funding for their therapeutic riding program. 

After The Party

I was the event photographer for this fund raiser. Please feel free to email me if you attended, and would like some pictures of this great event:

  1. Det var inte dåligt att du var fotografen. :) Kanske du hade nytta litet av det du lärde dig under Tammys fotokurs?
    Alltid trevligt med välorganiserade evenemang. Kram!

    1. Det var lite nervigt. Människor är inte vad jag vanligtvis fotar :) Men det var roligt!

      Tack <3

      kram på dig

  2. That restaurant looks incredible! I wish it was near me so I could try it out sometime.
