A sparkling evening of candlelight!

Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Equus

A sparkling evening of candlelight set the mood for the 25th Anniversary of Mane Stream’s EQUUS gala. On October 29th more than 300 attendees gathered once again at Hamilton Farm Golf Club in Gladstone to celebrate Mane Stream at our most glamorous fundraising event of the year. 

The evening included dinner, dancing, live and silent auctions and the premier of our newly created video which highlights Mane Stream’s programs and their impact on the lives of our participants. An emotional highlight of the evening was the dedication of our giving pyramid to beloved participant Adam Friedland, who passed away last spring. The outpouring of generosity from our guests for our mission was a wonderful tribute to Adam, and by naming the pyramid for him, we have guaranteed that his spirit will always be remembered at Mane Stream. 

Mane Stream relies on the generous giving of party goers and this year the response was overwhelming, ensuring that our hard-working herd will stay happy and healthy. This enables Mane Stream to support the many programs offered including adaptive riding, equine assisted therapies (OT, PT, and Speech-Language), Matheny School, Daytop School, Take the Reins for Veterans, and Horses for Healing for those living with or recovering from cancer.

Thank you to all who helping make this event a success!
