Planning is now underway for “Sunset at Winslow,” to be held on Sat., Jun. 16 from 6 to 10 p.m. in the arena at the Winslow Therapeutic Riding Center, located at 1433 Rte. 17A in Warwick NY. This event, which will benefit both the Winslow Center and the Warwick Valley Humane Society, is one of the top annual social functions in the Town of Warwick. The festive but casual dinner and dancing party is open to the entire adult community.
The Ruth B. Ottaway Arena will be transformed from a therapeutic horse riding rink into a colorful nightclub atmosphere. Attire for the evening will be casual chic with no high heels recommended. Last year’s “Sunset” attracted 400 guests and raised $86,000 for local non-profit groups.
The dinner will be catered by award-winning chefs from the Helm Restaurant in Greenwood Lake and dancing will be to the music of the CloudNYne Band. There will be upscale silent and live auctions along with tours of the Winslow facilities.
Leo R. Kaytes, Cindy Vander Plaat, Susan Ferro, and Betsy Mitchell will co-chair “Sunset at Winslow.” Marge King Porter will chair the auction activities.
The co-chairs said their goal for “Sunset at Winslow” is to provide “an enjoyable evening for the entire community while benefiting the wonderful work of Winslow Therapeutic Riding Center, a non-profit organization devoted to the special needs community of the Hudson Valley, and the Warwick Valley Humane Society, a non-profit organization which provides a safe haven for abandoned and abused animals and to finding forever homes for these animals.”
