Gwyneth Paltrow showed her deep concern for animal welfare when she attended a special gala on Saturday night.
The 35-year-old actress was co-host at “The Mane Event,” a function to benefit Amaryllis Farm Equine Rescue in New York on August 9. Paltrow – who shared the emcee duties with world-renowned photographer Steven Klein – is a longtime supporter of the Hamptons-based group’s goal of saving unwanted horses from slaughter.
Since 2005, AFER has saved 74 horses, ponies and mules from untimely deaths, with many of them being adopted by caring owners.
The gala event was held at Steven Klein’s West Kill Farm, and the honorary chairperson was Madonna.
