Kentucky Derby

May 5, 2018


On the biggest day of thoroughbred racing, we'd like to thank Sean McLaughlin, Denise Seomin and The Phoenician Resort, Scottsdale for choosing us as their benefiting charity! 

There are so many others to thank ...

Special thanks go to ...

Denise Seomin for helping us set up and tear down of panels for the horses, clean up detail (even in your fancy Derby outfit!) and providing roses for pictures with the horses and carrots for treats. You are always accommodating with anything we need, and we love getting to bring a former racehorse and participating in this event!

Dennis Cooper and his sweet dog, Echo, for picking up panels, hauling, setting up and tearing down. 


Mike Crowley for loaning us panels to use for a few days.


Sean McLaughlin for posting photos and raising funds on your own Facebook page for us.


Liz Ott and Michele Anderson Charney for bathing and grooming Lee's Gold and Scooter Bunsen for their special appearance.


Bonnie Northrop Mora for hauling horses to/from and hanging out for the day. 


Kelly Schroeder for assisting Bonnie with horses and taking photos of guests with Lee and Scooter.


Red Crino for helping with the table set up and interacting with guests, handing out brochures and bookmarks to educate people about what we do and who we are. 


Melanie Elise Photography for donating a $250 gift certificate for photo session and taking photos at the event. All photo credit in this album goes to the talented Melanie Wilson!


Janet Gangle from Wines for Humanity for donating a $250 gift certificate for a wine tasting party & bottle of wine they provide.

Lastly but not least by any means, thank you to Sandy Frankie. Sandy's attention to detail is like none other, she not only attended the event as our spokesperson, she coordinated and planned every detail, set up a great looking educational table and made up a fabulous basket to raffle off.
