Saturday November 9 2019 Gun Raffle Draw Winners
450+ people gathered for a high impact Veterans Day program at the farm.
The 10 AM 90-minute program of remembrance and reflection was relevant and enlightening in the context of comprehending the sacrificial investment of life of our military service people and their families.
A BIG SHOUT OUT to a team of business men and several Sportsman’s Clubs who partnered with Building Bridges and orchestrated a fun and classy gun raffle that cleared $60,000 for Building Bridges ongoing Equine Assisted Therapy Program. The Winners of the gun raffle are as listed!
The founding mission at Building Bridges continues. In 2019 from March to November, the number of active Veteran connections grew from 3 to 21. There is no cost to the Veterans.
The property, program and horse service capacity is 45. State Licensed Mental Health Providers and Equine Specialists are contracted by Building Bridges on a current capacity basis. All fundraising efforts contribute to the $1500 – $1700 cost per participant.
As an arm of compassion in Lancaster County, our mission is: to provide a safe space for personal growth through equine assisted activities for Veterans and their families, those suffering from trauma and loss, and those who are struggling with cognitive and emotional challenges.
