2nd Chance Auction is Live!!!

The following is from All About Equine Animal Rescue:

Thank you for helping horses!
It’s been incredibly busy the last few months.
We wrapped up our Boots and Bling event, and we’re so grateful to everyone that volunteered, donated, purchased tickets, attended, bid on auction items, and supported the event in every way.  Thanks to  your support, we sold out (over 400 tickets), and with immense gratitude for the folks at the Western States Horse Expo, we had a fun-filled event at the fabulous Murieta Equestrian Center.  With your support, we raised approximately $55,000 to support AAE operations and assure ongoing rescue activities!
Though our Boots event is a big boost to our budget, the calls for help with horses never ends, and sadly, neither does the need for fundraising.
For those of you that were unable to attend Boots (and those that attended, too), we had some auction items that were not bid on, and we thought it would be fun to have a second chance auction, online….a second chance for items to be won, a second chance for you to win, and another chance for you to keep helping horses!  We’ve added some cool new items, too.
We have a series of auctions lined up, so visit often and share broadly!
All About Equine’s Second Chance Auction is live on our Facebook page.  Like our horses, these items are in need of a new home and a second chance!
We hope to will find something you can’t live without, so help the horses by bidding!  All the proceeds from the online auction go directly to care for horses and ongoing operations at AAE!
We are so grateful to all of our donors for providing AAE with these items to feature!
THANK YOU for your continued support!
Our current 2nd Chance Online Auction is open!  
 
Bidding closes at 1pm PST on July 31, 2019
