The award, presented by the Days End Farm Horse Rescue in Woodbine, recognizes a member of the community that exemplifies the horse rescue’s vision of horses being cared for with respect, compassion and love. The award is named in memory of Brenda Curry, a former chairwoman of the board of the horse rescue.

Winters will receive the award at the rescue’s annual holiday party, held at the Turf Valley resort in Ellicott City from 6-11 p.m. Dec. 15. The event celebrates people who work on behalf of equines and will include a buffet dinner, raffles and a silent auction.
