2024 Barn Dance Sponsorship & Donations

Saturday, June 1, 2024, 5:00 pm

We have decided that instead of our traditional gala, we are going to hold a Barn Dance! We have so much to be proud of at our center! We made it through Covid, our Veteran’s program is back in full swing, Connected Horse is still serving those dealing with Alzheimer’s and dementia, and alumni camp is a huge success.  Not to mention the magic that is happening every day during lessons and therapy sessions.   We need to show off and get folks intimately connected to all the good work we are doing every single day!  We want our donors, friends and neighbors to come out, meet our horses, our participants, our staff and our volunteers.  What better way than a party at the center. 

 Line dancing!

Cowboy boots!

Cowboy hats!


Games in the Round Pen!

Demo in the Lower Arena!

Meet our participants!

Meet and greet with the Xenophon horses!

Live Auction!

We hope you can join us. If you can’t, you can still be a part of this celebration through your Donation!

Become a Sponsor!

Our Barrn Dance, in lieu of 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. Did you know that every singe program we offer is subsidized? Did you know that we offer scholarships to anyone who cannot afford to pay? 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:

Presenting Sponsor – Partner with Xenophon to share our impact, and share your premier VIP placement at our Barn Dance with clients, employees, family, and friends (10 tickets).

Platinum Pony – Recognition as our premier sponsor plus your own table (10 tickets) to enjoy an authentic Barn Dance spectacular evening with your clients, employees, family, or friends.

Golden Gate – Recognition as our sponsor plus four tickets to our foot-stomping, horse nuzzling, center experience.

Yes, our 30th Anniversary Gala is on Saturday, April 1st…#NoFoolin’ ! They say the 30th Anniversary gift is Pearls, so we decided to have an Under the Sea theme, complete with Seahorses!

Donate Items or Services to the 2023 Gala Live Auction!

Our live auction is an active, highly antisipated part of the evening and engages everyone to raise their paddle!  We need your creativity and connections for our travel destination packages.  If you have an exciting and unique donation for the 2023 Gala, please print the Auction Donation Form, fill it out and mail it to Xenophon.  If you have any questions or are unsure about an item, give a call to our Auction Donation Captain, Joan Sanders, (925) 377-0871 or email at joan@xenophontrc.org.


As with any time of the year, your donations make a difference.  If you can’t join us, you can still ensure the success of our gala by donating to it. We are so grateful for whatever you can do!
