Save a Horse - Hire a Cowboy

On Sunday March 24, 2013, from 2 - 6pm at the Orchards Restaurant in Chambersburg, there will be merchandise (live and silent auctions) and service vouchers donated by local businesses and community members as well as ten local cowboys to bid on.  All funds go to support Franklin County Extension's Therapeutic Riding Center.

 “Just like last year, visitors can bid on local cowboys to tackle the odd jobs around their businesses, homes and ranches in the live auction as well as a large variation of items donated by local businesses and community members in the silent auction”, says Lindsay Lyons, volunteer organizer and auctioneer.


Funds generated from this event will help people with special needs to receive therapy, relax and build confidence through horsemanship. “Making therapeutic riding available to people with special needs takes more than just horses”, says Susan Rotz, FCTRC instructor. “We continuously need to raise funds to stock up our supplies and improve material support to our barn: A barn that is unique to Franklin County!”

The fundraiser will feature live bluegrass music by Tuckahoe Ridge, Roy Pitz beer and food from the Orchards Restaurant.

Tickets are for sale at the Roy Pitz Brewery or by contacting 717-496-1307. Ticket prices are $10 in advance and $12 at the door. The price includes participation in both auctions, music and food.
