Xenophon’s 2023 Fundraising Gala!

It’s Our 30th Anniversary, Sat April 1st

and we’re celebrating Under the Sea!

The 2023 Gala marks Xenophon’s 30th Anniversary and will be another splashtacular event to support our many programs for children and adults with disabilities, Veterans, and individuals with memory loss and their care partners. Join us to celebrate the vision Judy Lazarus had in 1993 to provide a safe place for our kids to be themselves and enjoy the unconditional love of our special horses.

They say that your 30th is The Pearl, so we’ll have a few games during the cocktail hour, like the Jam Wine Toss, and pick the winning ticket for the Steinbeck Playing Card Draw. Then onto dinner (three mouth-watering choices) and a line-up of enticing destinations worthy of your raised paddle! There are many ways you can join in the fun: Become a Sponsor, Attend the event, donate an auction itemand if you can’t join us, you can still be a part of this celebration through your Donation!

We can’t wait to gather together again…this time at Blackhawk Country Club in Danville!
