Last night was unforgettable
The following is from the American Wild Horse Campaign:
Last night’s third annual — and first time virtual — STAY WILD benefit event for wild horses and burros was truly a night to remember. We rocked out, we laughed, we cried, we cheered, we celebrated … and today we’re straight back to work because our wild horses need, and deserve, us now more than ever.
While I’m still energized from the excitement of last night, I just found out we’re JUST short of closing-out some of our critical “Fund a Need” campaigns that our wild horses and burros rely on all year. We’re SO close to meeting these important goals, and — with your help right now — we can check-off the rest of these urgent wild horse needs by the end of the weekend:
I have some very exciting news: We have received generous matching gifts from AWHC totalling $15,000 that we have until MIDNIGHT on Sunday to reach. Many thanks to long-time AWHC supporters Jennifer and Hec Leeds-Delgado and our AWHC board member Bill Hake and his wife Laurie for jump-starting our effort to meet our Fund-A-Need goal.
We have 48 hours to double our impact, and fully fund these critical programs.
From the dart guns we use to carry out our world class PZP fertility control program, to the camera and video equipment we use to document each roundup, to the legal funds we need to continue to defend wild horses and burros in court — we are SO close to being able to meet the needs of our wild horse protection programs around the West. Can you help?
Our journey across the American West last night provided a stunning — and never before seen — visual preview of our work to prevent the decimation of the wild horses and burros we hold so close to our hearts. From amazing musical guest performances to a sobering behind-the-scenes film premiere of what it’s really like to attend a wild horse roundup, I won’t be forgetting last night anytime soon. If you weren’t able to attend, you can experience this magical evening for yourself by watching this just-uploaded video!
To our sponsors and silent auction participants, to our staff and board, to the amazing talent and our wonderful host committee: thank you … we couldn’t have done it without you! THANK YOU also to everyone who attended and donated – you made our very first virtual event a huge success. Now let’s keep up the good work!
