When Animal Control rescued 41 horses in January, people scrambled to find a way to care for them all. Sammie’s Friends and the Horses Plus Humane Society in Bangor took charge of the herd, but feeding them and paying their medical bills has been a hard hit to both organizations. Country star Lacy J. Dalton has stepped up and offered to help. She’ll be traveling over from her home in Nevada to play a concert to benefit the horses– proceeds will go to feeding the horses and paying for their medical bills. Dalton says there are plenty of reasons to love horses, which can be stronger than they look.
The concert is Saturday, rain or shine, at the Martines Ranch in Penn Valley. Gates open at 1 p.m. and there will be food for purchase and a silent auction. Dalton says she plans on have a blast for a good cause.
Tickets are $20 in advance and $23 at the door. You can find tickets or more information by calling 615-8433 or going online to SammiesFriends.org.
