Is this a charitable event?

Yes! Evening of Elegance is an official 501c3 non-profit organization. Each year our goal is to shine a spotlight on a local charity that needs community support. For 2023, we have selected V.E.T.S. (Veterans’ Equine Therapeutic Services). V.E.T.S. provides a serene place for military veterans to go that provides therapeutic healing through equine-related activities by highly skilled instructors, staff and trained volunteers. V.E.T.S. exists with the goal of providing services at no charge to their clients. Some of their volunteers and staff are veterans themselves and understand the challenges veterans face reintegrating into domestic life after experiencing the psychological trauma and physical wounds of war or life after service.
