A recent gala for the J.F. Shea Therapeutic Riding Center featuring dinner, drinks, and entertainment raised funds so the center can continue its mission of helping others through horse-riding.
The gala was held at Montage Laguna Beach and raised more than $600,000 and counting.
“As guests arrived on the lawn, they were welcomed by a light jazz trio,” a news release said. “The vista was a field of friends catching up with each other, a tequila tasting station, photo opportunities, a caricature artist, personal Haiku poetry, a wine wall, posters offering high-value live auction items, an open bar, and gifts for every guest.”
After dinner, Shea Center CEO Dana Butler-Moburg and Shea Center board chair Susan Chaney-Purel welcomed guests and gave a brief update on activities so far this year and from last year.
Live auctions were held for various destinations, including Catalina Island.
“The black tie-optional event was in a familiar setting, with 250 new and longtime Shea Center friends,” the release said.
