Slackoni's Fundraiser for Horse Riding Therapy

Hubby volunteers with this group, and we felt we should support the fundraiser.

Once arrived, we were placed beside the fire. That was perfect as JB is ALWAYS cold!
We were on very tall chairs, and a high table. It was a bit scary, but meant we could see the entertainer more easily.

George Turcotte was playing for the evening. He was great. Hubby had a virgin caesar.

There was a silent auction, I love those!

JB spoke to Maria, who has run the riding therapy for 30 years, The Lanark County Therapeutic Riding Program.

There were some speeches, as well as an auction for Senators hockey tickets, and overnight in the hotel. We don't watch hockey, and we live 7 minutes down the road, so that would have been silly!

Hubby had a nice warm  pot of tea to warm his hands!

Someone was bidding against me on the auction. Even before the 'winners' were announced she took her spoils off the table, opened them up, and inspected them. I like those bowls and the large salt and pepper shakers!

Hubby ended up with the horse and the bookends!

I have volunteered for a similar equestrian therapy organization here in Florida for the past five years. And the fundraiser (except for the fire place) looks quite familiar.

That horse wall-dressing is most attractive - and you can't go wrong with a set of book ends! YAM xx
