Equifest Evening of Hope celebrates Billie Kinder's Birthday Fundraiser We are so excited that Billie's 13th birthday fundraiser was held at the "Equifest Evening of Hope". The Equifest team saw the remarkable girl that Billie was and believe in her words of hope. Our family are eternally grateful to Equifest and their offer of the wonderful facilities at the Hawkesbury Showgrounds to celebrate this touching occasion. The Equifest Evening of Hope has been a fantastic event. After Dark played live, there was an open and silent auction offering incredible prizes. One lucky couple have won the raffle and will be going on a holiday to The Whitsunday Islands and Great Barrier reef. Food, drink, dancing and laughter made this a memorable evening. Thank you to Kevin Hansen and his team, to Todd Hinde, After Dark and everyone else that helped to make this event happen. Thank you to both the equestrian and local community for coming together to recognise our beautiful Billie and to celebrate her birthday with us. All profits from the nights fundraising will be going to Assistance Dogs Australia towards a dog for someone living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Billie's book hope is a collation of her poems, narratives and artwork. Hope is a gift which allows us to view this world through her eyes, the eyes of a beautiful caring soul, the eyes of innocence, belief and hope. Hope is the inspirational words from a 12 year old working magic to get our younger generation talking, securing response dogs and bringing hope to orphanages around the world. May Billie's words fill your hearts and give you insight and empathy. We ask that you help spread the words of hope far and wide and join us in being Billie's voice. Help us make her dream a reality. Billie adored all animals and saw the incredible things that happen when you bring people and dogs together. She would be absolutely delighted to know that her fundraising is changing lives. 'But there is, oh there is, there is a point if you make one'
