The annual Shea Center BBQ fundraiser for the equestrian therapy nonprofit looked a lot different this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but it still raised $640,000.
This year’s weeklong fundraiser involved a drive-thru parade for clients and volunteers, online show and an auction instead of the usual in-person event of past years. Approximately 600 individuals registered for the online activities, and barbecue meals were still provided, a press release said.
“Our riders get to see their horses. They have a great time,” Shea Center Executive Director Dana Butler-Moburg said during the drive-thru recognition on Sept. 12. “Our sponsors come. We’re really celebrating our sponsors, too.”
The online event was held on Sept. 19.
