Spring 2014 Fundrasier

Horsefeathers Therapeutic Riding Center joined with its friends and volunteers for its Spring Fundraiser at Trax Tavern and Grill in Deerfield. Questcor helped make the event a success with its generous corporate sponsorship. The event featured a silent auction and its annual Run for the Carrots. Some of the auction items included: Anirondack patio chairs, Marco Islands Vacation Package and tickets to various Chicago sporting events. Horsefeathers wishes to thank all of those who attended and provided support in the form of donations for the silent auction and their even more valuable time. The Run for the Carrots was won by Apollo followed by Scooby, and then Red Rover.
