Despite the large-as-life green elephant statue across the way, the Equest mini-ambassadors decked out in costume attire held their own on Saturday, March 23, at Sixty Five Hundred. What brought the little horses and the pachyderm to the former Wisteria site was the “Arabian Nights Gala” benefiting Equest.
With fortune teller Violette revealing fortunes and Lucy Wrubel being the genie of the sound, guests like Sue and Ben Casey added to the look of the night in costumes fit for a sheik.
While Equest Women’s Auxiliary Founder Louise Griffeth was pleased that her son Teal Griffeth and his wife Annie Griffeth had co-chaired such a sold-out event, Louise had no clue about a surprise the young Griffeths had up their sleeves.
