They rope you in with barbecue, live music and wine. They corral you with auction items. Pretty soon they are pitching their project. Sound like one of those timeshare sales deals? Not even close. Hope, Horses & Ribs is something you want to attend—for the barbecue, for the auction, for the wine and especially for the project. The event benefits Hope, Horses & Kids, an equine assisted learning process that aids children by teaching life skills, providing emotional support and helping them overcome behavioral challenges, all while they learn to ride and work with horses. That’s pretty cool, right? And at this event they give demonstrations, which is why it’s good to hang around and check out their pitch. Want to get up close (and really help out at the same time)? Shell out for a VIP table. [DF]
