A Perfect Evening; SPURS Riding Center
And for a good cause.
It was an enchanted night filled with elegance, class, and wine. On June 20, Kessler’s hosted a wine tasting fundraiser called “Grape Times” at Parkview Nursery. There were over 200 different varieties of wines, a wide array of hors d’oeuvres provided by Kessler’s, live entertainment, and a silent auction. Tickets were $50 per person and included a premium wine glass. There was also a VIP reserve tasting before the event at $100 per person. Around 750 people attended the event and raised $25,000 for SPURS Therapeutic Riding Center.
SPURS RIDING CENTER
The Rider Is the Reason.
Since 1992, SPURS has been saddling up to serve children and adults with a wide range of special needs. Horseback riding offers a unique, three-dimensional movement that benefits individuals with a multitude of physical disabilities. Participants are given physical freedoms and develop leadership skills through the riding experience. //
