DAYS END FARM HORSE RESCUE is proud to invite you to its 11th Annual Gala - “WINES & EQUINES” a Wine Pairing Dinner & Auction Event at The Bolger Center in Potomac, Maryland, on Saturday, April 7th 2018 at 5:00PM. Auction items are donated and funds raised from this event will pay for the critical care needs for rescue horses, humane education and community outreach, raising awareness about the prevalence of equine abuse and neglect. 

The auction will be both live and silent (Doors Open and Silent Auction begins at 5PM, Silent Auction closes and Dinner Service begins at 7PM, LIVE Auction begins at 8PM, Event Ends at 9PM). The Bolger Center is a hotel so make a night of it and book a room!

“Wines & Equines” guests will be greeted by equine escorts Ofr. Barney and Nugget (yes DEFHR horses will actually get to join us!) while they sample wines, enjoy hors d'oeuvres, listen to guitarist Kevin Burns and bid on the silent auction! Guests will then be ushered into the Franklin Ballroom for a multi-course plated dinner expertly paired with a range of red and white wines to bring out the flavors of the food that has been deliciously prepared and served by our host, The Bolger Center. Wine, hors d'oeuvres, multi-course dinner, more wine, dessert live music and entertainment are all included in the price of the ticket. A cash bar will also be available. 

Once again bidding will being be online a couple weeks prior to the event and then bid from your mobile device during the event. Still have your beloved flip phone - THAT IS OK we will support you at the event at our bidding kiosk. Please do not let your lack of upgraded technology hinder you from coming and enjoying an amazing evening of divine wine, delectable food and the fun entertaining adrenaline rush of shopping to the quick tongue of fellow horseman and Colorado’s finest auctioneer Kevin Rutter back for another year to raise much needed dollars for the horses! 

Bring your friends and family to help support abused and neglected horses in transition from Maryland and surrounding states.
