Giving Back to the Community

I’m proud to announce my support for the Grande Prairie PARDS (Peace Area Riding for the Disabled Society) current fund raising project. I have donated a full photo session plus an 8×10 gift print for PARDS to auction off at the upcoming 13th annual Dine & Dance to be held November 20, 2010. To quote directly from their promotional material:

PARDS Annual Dine and Dance is the second major annual fundraiser our organization hosts in support of operations, rider sponsorship, facility maintenance, specialized riding equipment and countless other areas.

This is an event you don’t want to miss! Ideal for a great night out with friends (whether they are the ones you came with or new ones you meet there), and for your staff Christmas party. The evening includes a delicious Buffet Dinner, cash bar, Silent and Live Auctions (treat yourself or get some holiday shopping done or both!), the famous PARDS Plinko game, Ring Box raffle, “13 Bottles of Wine” auction featuring a different PARDS horse on each bottle (but which one is hiding the Grande Prize?), and, of course, music and dancing!

If you, or anyone you know, is interested in attending PARDS annual fundraising event on November 20th, tickets may be purchased through the PARDS office, phone 780-538-3211.

PARDS is a not-for-profit therapeutic riding center offering equine assisted therapy to children and adults living with disabilities. Why not check out the links above and support them by attending their important fundraiser?

PS: My shoulder is really slowing down my workload of editing and any time spent on the computer. I hope you can be patient with me as I continue to work on some of my outstanding projects. I’m also on my way out of town until November 16th.

It’s eyes look worried.

So, then, what I saw in his eyes is pain and knowledge. Horses are incredibly intelligent animals. So sad.
