2023 Gala Sponsorship & Donations

Celebrate our 30th Anniversary!

The 2023 Gala marks Xenophon’s 30th anniversary! Thirty years of smiles, thirty years of life-changing experiences for everyone who interacts with Xenophon! Challenges continue, but we want to gather to commemorate the vision Judy Lazarus had in 1993 to provide a safe place for all our participants (children and adults with disabilities, Veterans, and individuals with memory loss and their care partners) to be themselves and benefit from the unconditional love of our amazing horses.  There are many ways you can join in the fun: Become a Sponsor, Attend the event, and if you can’t join us, you can still be a part of this celebration through your Donation!

Become a Sponsor!

Our annual gala needs to raise a significant portion of our operating budget, and sponsorship of this event is one of the fundamentals of its success. These funds allow us to provide a wide range of high quality equine activities, a safe outdoor experience for our vulnerable community. Join us this year by becoming a sponsor.  We’ll get your company name out to the community as a supporter of our life-changing programs!

We have several levels to match your support…see our Sponsor Form for full details:
