Wine, Women & Horses (and Men!)

Female occasion pairs with corresponding event for men to benefit Child Crisis Arizona.

More than 400 women wearing a variety of extravagant hats gathered at Turf Paradise for the 7th annual Wine, Women & Horses on April 8.

Traditionally an all-female occasion, this year featured a corresponding event for men, the inaugural Suds, Studs & Stogies. Both events benefited Child Crisis Arizona in support of their work to keep children safe and build strong families.

While women enjoyed lunch, a selection of wines and a hat contest, the men relished barbeque, cigars and an array of sports playing in the exclusive Director’s Suite. Both groups participated in the live horse racing, silent auctions and a raffle.

“Everyone that attends Wine, Women & Horses belongs in the Winner’s Circle,” says Torrie Taj, CEO of Child Crisis Arizona. “Their heart for children is evidenced by their sponsorship, attendance and participation in today’s festivities, and allows us to deliver hope to the children and families in our programs. We are deeply grateful to Turf Paradise and Serena Simms for hosting this event year after year.”
