Summer Glen Ranch Horse Rescue in Ramona will hold a free admission fundraiser with a concert and silent auction on Saturday, March 24, from 2 to 5 p.m. at Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3783, 2247 Kelly St.
Bands Earth Tribe 1.1 and Journey will entertain from 2 to 4 p.m. Snacks and drinks will be donated by Executive Vending SD Inc.
Silent auction items include a two-night stay with dinner voucher from Barona Resorts, six months free service from Ramona Disposal, a gift basket from Kahoots, a survival pack from Mennell’s Trail Head Adventures and other gift certificates and items.
All donations are tax deductible and will directly support the horses, said the organizers.
Summer Glen Ranch has been owned by Anna Merino since 1988. Merino has 20 rescue horses that were either abandoned, neglected or saved from slaughterhouses.
Breeds include Arabs, Belgium drafts, saddlebreds and thoroughbreds.
The goal of the rescue is to maintain the health of the horses and prevent them from being forgotten or destroyed.
Diagnosed with diabetic retinopathy that is progressing, Merino is accepting community volunteer ranch chore work, horse sponsorship of $109 a month and donations of any kind.
