The Exceller Fund is sponsoring its sixth annual holiday fundraiser, which runs from Nov. 14-Dec. 9.This year's card features a photo of Exceller, and a photo of horses helped by The Exceller Fund in 2005. The card also contains a biography on Exceller, as well as information on the horses featured in the photo.To participate, individuals make a minimum donation of $25 to the Exceller Fund's Holiday Horses fundraiser. In return, the donor receives a holiday card that displays a photograph of Exceller. Donors may make gifts of the cards by designating a recipient on the Holiday Horses donation form, which is available on The Exceller Fund's website (http://www.excellerfund.org). Only 60 cards are available this year, offered on a first come, first serve basis.
In the past five years, the holiday fundraiser has raised over $6,000 for the Exceller Fund. The majority of donations are used for the day-to-day care of Exceller Fund-sponsored horses. Additional donations are put in a special fund that may be used to purchase horses from auctions or for surgeries that
hey may require.The Exceller Fund was formed in 1997 following the news of the death of the champion racehorse Exceller in a slaughterhouse.
