NCEFT celebrates 40th with gala

Tickets must be reserved by Sept. 16

A Woodside institution, the National Center for Equine Facilitated Therapy, is celebrating its 40th anniversary with "Heroes & Horses, a Jewels & Jeans Gala" on Saturday, Sept. 24.

The fundraiser will take place at NCEFT's 12-acre facility at 880 Runnymede Road in Woodside. Cocktails will be available by the old dairy barn starting at 5:30 p.m. Dinner will be served in the riding arena, followed by dancing to the live band, California Cowboys.

The suggested attire is Western, jewels and jeans.

NCEFT is a nonprofit that uses horses to provide physical and occupational therapy for children and adults with special needs. The range of needs includes cognitive skill building and veterans' rehabilitation.

"We raise money to fund therapy sessions for those who don't have the ability to pay, to care for the amazing therapy horses we use, and many other aspects of running the Center," says Nicole Buttitta, chair of the gala.

Tickets are $200 per person and must be reserved by Sept. 16. For more information contact Ms. Buttitta at (408) 690-0424, or go to the www.nceft.org.
