Whispering Manes Therapeutic Riding Center, a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing people with disabilities the ability to interact with specially trained horses, will host the Shoe Fairies Barn Bash on Sunday, November 6, 2016 from 1pm to 4pm at Whispering Manes located at 6105 SW 125 Avenue. Participants can register at https://www.whisperingmanes.org/shoefairies2016/bbtickets/ Discounted tickets may be purchased online for $40. Ticket prices are $50 each on the day of the event.
Attendees are invited to “Sip and Shop for a Cause!” Refreshments and nibbles and bites will be served as attendees enjoy guilt free shopping with local vendors including a featured fashion show by Cocoa Couture. There will also be an amazing silent auction as well as entertainment by local artists. And of course, all attendees will have the opportunity to meet the beautiful horses and tour the state of the art facility.
The Shoe Fairies Barn Bash, chaired by Helen Picard, will reach out to more than 200 women in an effort to raise funds to support the equine-assisted activities program that benefits hundreds of affected children and adults. This is the third such event to support Whispering Manes. The 2014 event drew over 100 attendees and raised thousands of dollars to support Whispering Manes’ program.
“In its first five years of operation, Whispering Manes has positively impacted the lives of Miami-Dade children and adults with disabilities, as well as veterans and victims of domestic violence. We are confident that with enthusiastic community participation in this event, Whispering Manes will be able to continue to provide high-quality equine assisted activities and bring the healing power of horses to many more affected members of our community,” said Helen Picard, Shoe Fairies Barn Bash Chair.
Whispering Manes Therapeutic Riding Center’s mission is to benefit children and adults with special needs or disabilities by offering them the opportunity to interact with dedicated horses in a manner that promotes physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. Through programs at Whispering Manes people can develop therapeutic relationships with horses, crossing boundaries of speech and physical disabilities in a way that encourages healing and improved self-esteem.
