EQUUS is always the most glamorous event of the year and this year was no exception. On November 14th almost 300 attendees gathered at Hamilton Farm Golf Club in Gladstone where they celebrated the many triumphs of the organization, its riders, clients, donors, volunteers and staff.
As the biggest fundraising event of the year, Mane Stream relies on the generous giving of party goers to raise enough funds to support the many programs offered including adaptive riding, equine assisted therapies (OT, PT, and Speech-Language), Matheny School, Day Top School, Take the Reins for Veterans, and Horses for Healing for those living with or recovering from cancer.
In addition to an evening of dinner, dancing, live and silent auction the attendees were treated to the heartfelt story of AJ, a Mane Stream Occupational Therapy participant. AJ’s father described the extensive medical history and the continuous fight to achieve their top two goals set before AJ was born. Goal #1 – attend public school and Goal #2 – walk on the beach. AJ’s story told how out of all the therapies he receives, it is Equine Assisted Occupational Therapy at Mane Stream with Miss Gina and Blaze that has become AJ’s favorite.
Thank you to everyone who gave generously this year especially our Sponsors!
