This Saturday, October 13th Rein & Shine will hold their 6th Annual Barn Raiser from 4-8 p.m. McClellanville local, Stuart Foss is the executive director of this great organization that pairs horseback riding and therapy. The organization relies heavily on this yearly fundraiser in order to help lowcountry adults and children with physical, mental, social, and emotional limitations. This years event will have food and drink from Moma Browns BBQ, TBonz Home Brew Ale, and Whole Foods Market Wine. There will be bluegrass music, pumpkin painting contest, a jump castle, silent auction, pony rides (of course!) as well as an opportunity to learn more about the facility, horses and instructors. Tickets costs $30 for an individual, $50 per couple, $10 for students and children, with children under 7 admitted for free, but donations of any size are always welcome. For more information on the event please visit their website.
In addition to the fundraiser, Stuart is always in need of volunteers willing to assist riders as well as fun things like mucking out the stalls. The organization has as highly trained staff, but a single rider may need numerous volunteers to make sure everyone is safe. If you are looking for a great way to get out of the house and feel great about helping others, this is the cause for you. You may just find that you benefit from your time spent at Rein & Shine just as much as those you are helping. Visit their website or contact Stuart Foss for more information.
