Thanks to the generosity and dedication of so many wonderful donors and friends, the 2023 Wheatland Farm Gala was a tremendous success, with over 200 guests coming together to support our therapeutic riding, para-dressage, and inclusion programs for children and adults with disabilities and their families. Our generous attendees helped with the silent auction, the live auction, and Raise the Paddle. Many donated online and volunteered countless service hours to make the gala successful. We are thrilled to announce that we raised an astounding $429,000 -- and counting -- through these collective efforts. This remarkable achievement is a testament to the power of community, compassion, and generosity.
The funds raised will go directly towards funding our therapeutic riding, para-dressage, and inclusion programs, enabling us to provide essential services, support, and care to individuals with disabilities and their families. This generosity will help us positively impact the lives of these children and adults, empowering them to achieve their goals, build confidence, and foster a sense of belonging. We sincerely appreciate everyone's commitment to Wheatland Farm and our mission. It enables us to continue promoting inclusivity, independence, and well-being for individuals with disabilities and their families. We are profoundly grateful for so much ongoing support. We look forward to the conclusion of a successful year at Wheatland Farm for 2023, and we are dreaming big for '24!
