On June 10, Neiman Marcus downtown hosted the Equest Women's Auxiliary to thank them for their work in supporting Equest’s programs.  Equest provides therapeutic sports riding classes and Hippotherapy to more than 180 clients every week. The organization serves children and adults with all types of physical, cognitive, and emotional disabilities, and it has become one of the largest nonprofit therapeutic riding centers in the state.

Katherine Coker, president of Equest Women’s Auxiliary, thanked Neiman Marcus for hosting the luncheon at the Zodiac Room and told about the Auxiliary’s role. “The Auxiliary plays a very important role in sustaining the services of Equest, and I recently learned that historically the funds it raises accounts for 20 percent of Equest’s operating budget.” She also recognized Louise Griffeth who had the vision to start the Auxiliary and longtime Equest Auxiliary Board Member Elsa Norwood.

Jeff Byron, Neiman Marcus’ general manager, was honored to host the luncheon because of his personal interest in Equest as a volunteer who guides the riders. Coker added that the Equest Women's Auxiliary Luncheon and Style Show, “Year of the Horse,” is October 7 at Brook Hollow Golf Club. Chaired by Angie Kadesky, this luncheon, which raises much needed funds for Equest, is expected to sell out. More information about joining the Auxiliary and attending the luncheon can be found at
