The Fundraiser will benefit The Kaeli Kramer Foundation, which was started six years ago following the death of 19 year old Kaeli. Since Kaeli was an avid equestrian and passionate animal advocate, the family set up the foundation in her honor. The foundation operates a horse sanctuary that provides a lifetime care for slaughter-bound horses. The Foundation leads Humane Education programs for school children as well as a Life Skills and Animal Care program for developmentally delayed young adults.
The Muttontown Horsemen’s Association, a non-profit organization is dedicated to preserving trails and open spaces in and surrounding the Muttontown Preserve on Long Island’s historic North Shore as well as promoting Equine Education and Humane treatment of Horses.
