That is why Triple R Horse Rescue, a 501(c) 3 organization that rescues, rehabilitates and re-homes horses surrendered to its care, will host the third annual Hope for Horses Gala on Saturday, October 3, 2015 from 5 – 9 p.m. at the Carefree Resort and Conference Center in Carefree, Ariz. The fund-raiser will focus the community on the rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of the horses in its care.

According to Ken Bacher, president of Triple R Horse Rescue, the 2015 event will feature Mary Hoffman, a popular Mesa, Ariz.-based singer songwriter, and her band, as the principal entertainment for the event. Hoffman, winner of the Arizona State University (ASU) Idol competition in 2004, is a country music aficionado. In addition, Robert J. Leary, the volunteer head coach and founder for ASU’s western equestrian team, will serve as master of ceremonies and auctioneer for the event.

This year’s event also will feature dinner, silent and live auction items, live western entertainment and surprise announcements. Several sponsorship opportunities are available to support the event.
