SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why The Capistrano Dispatch is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
The J.F. Shea Therapeutic Riding Center raised proceeds surpassing $240,000 from its recent Drive to Ride fundraiser—significantly more than the initial $175,000 goal.
“For persons with disabilities, the pandemic has been and continues to be such a hardship,” Donor Relations Manager Sonya Violette said. “To see our friends near and far support the priority needs of our clients is truly inspiring!”
The Drive to Ride campaign was held in February, and urged people to donate to help provide financial aid for clients, as well as for horse care and programs for military families and veterans. Clients shared their stories online and could take photos of a horse cutout on-site throughout the fundraiser.
