Sky not the limit for Evening of HOPE

Danny Kinder Sky News

Interest for EquiFest's Evening of HOPE on Friday the 31st of March has been huge as the equine community prepares to celebrate what would have been Billie Kinder's 13th birthday this year. Billie's mother, Danny, has dedicated herself to spreading Billie's message of hope to young children across Australia through a book titled "HOPE" which is a collation of illutrations, poetry and narratives from Billie.

Last week, Sky News caught up with Danny to talk about the amazing life Billie had, the greater equine community and the support she has recieved, and EquiFest's Evening of HOPE that will celebrate the life of Billie Kinder. When asked about how the equine community has rallied around Danny after Billie's accident in May last year, Danny said they had been "unbeleivable" in the support her and her family had recieved since the passing of her daughter.

The 'Fly High Billie' charity will be running both a silent and open auction on the night offering incredible prizes, as well as a raffle with the grand prize being a 10 day holiday for 2 to the Whitsunday Islands and Great Barrier Reef. Information on the full prize and terms and Conditions for the raffle can be found on the Fly High Billie website. The night will also include talks from some special guests and round out with a live band! Your ticket to this special evening includes an alcoholic beverage and food on arrival. Additional food and drinks will be available for purchase. All the proceeds from the EquiFest Evening of HOPE are going towards Assistance Dogs Australia, raising money towards support dogs for people living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Billie had a love for all animals but especially horses and was a very talented Show Jumper winning the 2015 State overall Show Jumping Rider and State overall Primary rider. Her book HOPE has sold over 3,000 copies around the world.
