Saratoga WarHorse is a nonprofit organization assisting veterans who are suffering from invisible, psychological wounds by providing a confidential, peer-to-peer, action based, equine-assisted experience that initiates immediate and empowering changes.
“Only 1 percent of American men and women have answered their country’s call to serve and protect in the military, and yet out of the entire general population in the United States, those who have served account for 20 percent of all suicides.”
Saratoga WarHorse offers veterans a three-day experience that has proven to be effective and invaluable for those struggling to adjust to life after military service. The program is provided at no cost to the veterans.
More than one hundred guests gathered at the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame last Monday to kick off Travers Week at a “Winner’s Circle Affaire,” benefitting Saratoga WarHorse. The inaugural event was a salute to Paul Oreffice, honoring the retired chairman and CEO of the DOW Chemical Company with the Lifetime Achievement Award for Philanthropy & Dedication to Thoroughbred Racing.
Our thanks and gratitude go out to Charles V. Wait, Honorary Chair and Mayor Joanne D. Yepsen, Co-Chair.
To all of our Sponsors and Silent Auction contributors, for whom without their contributions and participation our event would not have been such a success – Thank you!
