Harry and Snowman Movie at Lyric Theatre January 11 to Benefit
The Equine Rescue and Adoption Foundation
The Equine Rescue and Adoption Foundation (ERAF) will present a showing of the movie Harry and Snowman at The Lyric Theatre on January 11 as a fundraiser. The movie follows the Cinderella story of Dutch immigrant Harry deLeyer and his transformative relationship with a broken down Amish plow horse, named Snowman, that he rescued off a slaughter truck bound for the glue factory. In less than two years, Harry and Snowman, would go on to win the triple crown of show jumping, beating the nation’s blue bloods and traveling the world together as they became the media darlings of the 1950s and 60s. Their chance meeting at a Pennsylvania horse auction saved them both and forged a friendship that would last a lifetime, as told by 86-year-old Harry firsthand for the first time.
“ This is a wonderful movie that everyone, horse lovers and more, will love. The story of rescuing a horse off a slaughter –bound truck and training him to become a triple crown winner of show jumping is inspiring to say the least. We have rescued several wonderful horses from slaughter and we know this firsthand,” commented Denise LeClair -Robbins, president of the non-profit organization that is based in Palm City.
Guests will enjoy cocktails and light hors d’oeuvres beginning at 6:30 p.m. and the film will begin at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $75 and VIP seating is $100. All proceeds will benefit ERAF.
Tickets may be purchased on their website at www.eraf.org.
