TEN-HUT! Report to the Equest at Texas Horse Park at 7:00 PM for Boots & Salutes on Friday, July 28, 2017. Join Co-Chairs Carolyn Anderson and Robin Lott at this first-time, USO-style tribute fundraiser for Equest’s Hooves for Heroes program which promotes the well-being and mental health of veterans and their families through equestrian therapies and counseling.
Boots & Salutes is a special evening of tributes to the men and women who have served our country to protect our freedom. The fun-filled, high-energy celebration will officially begin with a fly-over by a T-6 Texan, an American trainer aircraft used to train pilots during World War II. Dance under the stars and enjoy 1940’s-genre entertainment by J and D Entertainment, live Frank Sinatra-inspired music by Dave Halston, and boogey woogie bugle boy dancers from the Dallas Swing Dance Society.
Casual gourmet food stations, representing the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard, and First Responders, will be presented by Neiman Marcus Group, LUCK at Trinity Groves, Seasons 52, The String Bean, 3015 at Trinity Groves, The Rustic and Popstar Popsicles. Ice-cold beverages provided by Dr. Pepper Snapple Group and Oak Highlands Brewery will be served from the back of a pickup truck.
Individual tickets are $75 for guests or to sponsor a veteran, and tables are $600 for eight guests. Funds raised are matched by an HHSC veterans program grant which doubles the impact of every gift.
Tickets and sponsorship are available at www.equest.org/boots or by contacting Christine Volkmer at 972.412.1099 ext. 227 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
