The Capistrano Dispatch

In its 36th annual BBQ and Family Faire event—the largest to date—the J.F. Shea Therapeutic Riding Center welcomed an estimated 1,500 guests and raised more than $900,000 to go toward therapeutic riding programs for children and adults with special needs.

Held on Saturday, Sept. 27, the event included a special demonstration by the center’s clients and several family-friendly activities, such as carnival games and mechanical bull rides.

There was also a silent and live auction, emceed by Kent French, auctioneer and Anaheim Ducks reporter for Fox Sports West and Prime Ticket. For more on the Shea Center, visit www.sheacenter.org/events.
