What can you get for $5?
At Reins of Hope, $5 is enough to give a student with disabilities a therapeutic ride on a horse. The nonprofit has kept prices for the 30-minute ride at $5 since 1995.
Executive Director Jane Harder said that’s partly because the success Reins of Hope, 2116 North Obee Road, has had at its largest fundraiser. Dinner and dessert will be served during the annual event on Saturday in the Sunflower North Building at the Kansas State Fairgrounds.
A live and silent auction will have lots of items, including a Henry Golden Boy Rifle, hunting and fishing guided trips and Bob Marshall saddle and rack.
Doors open at 6 p.m. A barbecue dinner will be served at 6:15 p.m. followed by Carriage Crossing pie for dessert. The live auction is at 7:30 p.m.
A table for eight people can be reserved for $400. Tickets are $50 per person or two for $75. Tickets can be purchased at the event or in advance by calling Reins of Hope at 620-665-0906 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
