Laughing Pony Rescue of Rancho Santa Fe held a Sundowner Charity Event on June 14 at the beautiful Fallbrook estate of Evelyn Zeller.

The event featured wine tasting, entertainment and a live auction, and raised more than $1,200 to feed the horses. We wish to thank all the volunteers and all those that made this possible.

Laughing Pony Rescue, a non-profit 501(c)3 in Rancho Santa Fe, is dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating sick, abused, and abandoned horses of any breed. Founder Celia Sciacca has rescued more than 300 horses and nursed them back to health. For more about Laughing Pony Rescue, go to
