Locust Valley, NY – May 22, 2012 – The Seraphim12 Foundation is thrilled to announce that September 10, 2012, Citi Field will host “Hooves On First!” Board Member and Partner of the New York Mets and Citi Field, David Katz, has partnered with The Seraphim12 Foundation to raise awareness concerning abuse, neglect and the unnecessary slaughter of horses. This event will bring the community together to make a statement, and promote the alternatives to slaughtering horses. The Seraphim12 Foundation will use their compassionate education as a way to affect change. Katz has generously granted the non-profit organization the opportunity to host the awareness event for thousands.
Children, parents, seniors and all people will have the chance to write letters to the President and Mrs. Barack Obama, exercising their first amendment rights to be heard. They will be able to enjoy the baseball game, as well as enjoy special guests. A press conference will be held that will include animal advocacy groups, politicians and celebrities. Sponsorship opportunities will be available for a select group, as well as have the opportunity to be seen at a venue that can hold up to 42,000 people.
Katz joined Sterling Equities in 1987 and serves as Executive Vice President. As an avid animal lover, Katz has truly connected to the Seraphim12 Foundation’s cause. His own daughter is an equestrian, and through both his and his family’s love of animals, Katz conceptualized an awareness day to help educate both equestrians and non-equestrians about the importance of saving America’s horses.
Citi Field seats nearly 42,000 fans with every game, and offers numerous amenities and tours on a daily basis. “This opportunity is beyond belief,” Seraphim12 Foundation’s Manda Kalimian described. “David is so in tune with the importance of speaking for the horses who have helped us build this country. Acting as one of their angels, he has allowed us the opportunity to reach out to millions during the baseball season, which is an unbelievable gift.”
Don’t miss the opportunity to be a guardian angel for our nation’s horses. Join the Seraphim12 Foundation as Citi Field honors our national treasure with its celebration of the American Horse.
