Lisa Gatti

The Executive Director and Founder of Pal-O-Mine is using her love of horses to help an expanding roster of human beings. Gatti and her fellow equestrian enthusiasts at Pal-O-Mine recently accepted a $6,000 grant from the philanthropic organization 100 Women Who Care about Long Island. The money will be used to endow a 12-week program for the survivors of domestic violence and their children. Pal- O-Mine, which was founded in 1995, also facilitates equine therapy programs for disabled individuals, veterans and the underprivileged.
