The Arabian Nights gala on Saturday, March 23, at Sixty Five Hundred paid off for Equest with big bucks. Tonight Equest Gala Co-Chairs Annie and Teal Griffeth presented a check — $378,937 that blew the hay out of the barn. The handover took place at Etro with Etro head lady Melinda Rathke hosting the check presentation after having just flown in on a bumpy flight from the Big Apple.
