Brooke USA Kicks Off Season By Painting Wellington Orange

Brooke USA officially kicked off its new initiative “Paint Wellington Orange” with its first two fundraising events of the season: a Lunch & Learn at the Winter Equestrian Festival on Feb. 22 and the Orange Party & Give Back Day event, hosted by Polo Bar & Grill, on Feb. 26.

This fundraising movement was designed to engage the community to raise awareness about the mission of Brooke USA, which is to improve the welfare of working horses, donkeys and mules, and the people they serve, throughout Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America.

Another event was held at Don Chepo’s Taco Shop on March 7, and Brooke USA’s highly anticipated event of the season, the third annual Nic Roldan’s Sunset Polo & White Party, will close out the winter fundraising calendar on March 23.

To support Brooke USA’s initiative, shop, eat or visit any of the many “Paint Wellington Orange” partners across Wellington.
