Feast of Epona Auction Is Sunday at Seabiscuit Cafe

The fifth annual Feast of Epona fundraiser will be Sunday, June 21, at Seabiscuit Cafe from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. The event will cost $18 for wine and hors d' oeuvres and there will be a silent auction.

The silent auction will offer 10 items, including horse art, items from local merchants, and a decorated wooden box. All proceeds will go to the Dr. Rex M. and Elizabeth C. Orr Fund for Animals.

The fund was established by Debra and Sandra Orr in memory of their parents. It promotes and provides for preventive medical care of animals on Mackinac Island and educational programs to teach children how to properly care for animals.

Previous grants from the fund have helped purchase a riding horse for Mackinac Horseman's Association's 4/H riding programs. Future programs include a free veterinarian day for Island animals to receive checkups and immunizations.
