BILLINGS – The annual fundraiser for Angel Horses now has a stable of colts ready for auction later this summer.
The four horses were unveiled Tuesday before they go to a local gallery.
Five artists helped create the beautiful works of art.
If you remember last year, Angel Horses displayed four horses downtown.
After vandals damaged several, the group moved the horses indoors — but collectively — they eventually sold for more than $100,000 for the non-profit organization.
“It was such a good thing there was so much attention last year because people really cared and fell in love with the cause,” said Jonnie Jonckowski, Angel Horses President. “They understood more deeply and passionately that this was about our seniors and our lost and the cancer patients and our veterans and all those people that struggle and don’t have any money to fix it. We give all of our services for free. It takes money to do that and theses horses help us to do that.”
The horses will be available to the public for viewing at Gallery Interiors in the heart of downtown through August.
They will go up for auction September 10.
The Angel Horses program cares for seniors, at-risk youth, special needs children, people affected by cancer and veterans. Learn more here.
