– REINS Therapeutic Horsemanship Program invites local residents and their guests to join in the festivities at its 17th annual County Hoedown on Oct. 12, from 4 to 10p.m., presented by the Donegan Burns Foundation.
This “old-time” event is a major fundraiser that helps support the life-changing therapy provided by REINS to disabled children and adults.
The REINS Country Hoedown typically draws over 800 guests from the local community and across the nation. The evening will include a buffet dinner, catered by Lucille’s Smokehouse BBQ, live entertainment by Left Coast Willie & Friends, a $2,000 gas give-a-way sponsored by “In BonBon We Trust,” a silent auction, and riding demonstrations by REINS very own riders.
This year’s riding demonstrations feature a special tribute to all wounded veterans, so guests are asked to come decked out to show their American pride.
All proceeds from this event go directly to support REINS, which currently provides over 7,000 therapy sessions to children and adults with disabilities each year.
The exceptional form of therapy on horseback that REINS provides brings improved health, recreation and joy to the lives of special riders.
Tickets to the fundraising event are $50/adults, $25/kids 12 and under, $45/military and seniors, and $20/military kids. Family pack of 2 adult and 2 kid’s tickets is $130. Sponsorships with many benefits are still available.
For more information, or tickets, call Jennifer at (760) 731-9168 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Donegan Burns Foundation President, Bettye Burns makes presentation to Dr. Erin English, School Principal
Foothill Oak Elementary School located in Vista, CA was awarded $25,000 towards using the Fast Forward Reading Intervention Program in an after-school program starting in the fall of 2013. This after-school program will focus on incoming second and third graders who, despite efforts during school and at home, do not progress in the area of reading. Thank you to Bettye Burns and the Donegan Foundation for their generosity and commitment to providing support that will ensure children attain the skills they need to become literate.
