Arabian Night at the Galleria

Arabian Night at the Galleria, Created, produced and promoted an exhibition Arabian Horse Show in the Galleria, benefiting St. Joseph Hospital Foundation. In a precedent-setting action, the Galleria ice rink was covered with straw, becoming a horse arena for an event featuring film star and expert horseman, Patrick Swayze headlining an exhibition by twelve magnificently costumed Arabian horses and riders. The extravaganza attracted over 15,000 people and beyond benefiting the St. Joseph Foundation, resulted in Christmas level sales figures for Galleria merchants during a normally slow retail period.
