Reprinted from Sept. 8 Equine Therapy born from family’s passion for horses
RockyPoint360: What is it that you’re planning for November 13th?
Claudia: It’s an event that will be here, at the ranch. We begin with the therapy sessions at 5 p.m., which is about an hour and a half, and then around 6 p.m. we’re going to start giving out raffle prizes. The first prize is for a family stay on the beach, through Betty and RPR, plus there will be gas vouchers, lunch and dinner certificates, plus certificates for breakfasts, jewelry, and other gifts that will all be part of the raffle prizes. It is of course the therapy, plus inviting everyone who buys a ticket to come out to the ranch. Plus, many of the children’s mothers are going to prepare traditional Mexican dishes, which will be free for all who have bought raffle tickets and are helping out with the equine therapy program. The tickets will be 100 pesos, and 100% is for these children – nothing goes to expenses.
RockyPoint360: How are you getting the raffle prizes?
Betty Majors: We’ve volunteered a condo, and I’ve spoken with a couple other people already. We’d like to invite restaurants to do gift certificates for an amount, not just two people, so that the entire family can go. This is about family. We will have other prizes; there will be gift certificates and gift cards. We don’t know how many gifts yet, but there will be numerous prizes. You don’t have to be present to win, but everyone is invited to come. I think if people come and see, they will really understand [the program].
Claudia: It’s not something really big, but we’re thinking of it more as a type of gratitude for the people who buy tickets and are helping the equine therapy program. However, we’ve got equipment to help with sound and enliven the event a bit, plus the food!
