JUST IN: 2020 Equest Gala Chair Elizabeth Fischer Reveals Plans for "An Evening in Old Hollywood"

Updated: Apr 22, 2020

With all the hoop-la about “Knives Out,” “A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood,” “Frozen” and “The Good Liar,” the Equest team is capitalizing on the love of films for the Equest 2020 Gala. But they’re reaching back into the days when Clark Gable, Jean Harlow, William Powell and Myrna Loy were ruling Hollywood’s Golden Age to create “An Evening In Old Hollywood” on Saturday, April 25, at the Hyatt Regency’s Landmark Ballroom.



Gala Chair Elizabeth Fischer along with Honorary Co-Chairs Lynn and Allan McBee have arranged to have “a red-carpet entrance, paparazzi and vintage flair” for the black-tie fundraiser complete with champagne reception, seated dinner, live and silent auctions and entertainment provided by Jordan Kahn Group’s 11-piece Walton Stout Band.


According to Elizabeth, “As an equestrian and mental health advocate, I am beyond thrilled to take the reins this year and give Dallas the fundraising event of the season on April 25. With last year’s sold out gala, we have unsurprisingly outgrown our previous venue. I can’t wait to see the records we break with the incredible group of diverse people and businesses all coming together to help change lives and open their checkbooks, just as they did in Old Hollywood.”


Tables of ten start at $5,000 with underwriting opportunities available now.
