LINCROFT – A special evening of fine wine and craft beer tasting paired with a selection of complementary cheeses will benefit the scholarship program of Special People United to Ride (SPUR), the equestrian program for disabled people of all ages.
The event will take place from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5, at Thompson Park Visitor Center, 805 Newman Springs Road.
Tickets are $60 per person.
In addition to the tastings, there will be a display of original art including Keyport’s Butterfly Renaissance Project, live music and a 50/50 raffle.
SPUR is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit therapeutic horsemanship program held at Sunnyside Equestrian Center, Lincroft, under the auspices of the Monmouth County Park System.
Guided by instructors certified by PATH International, the governing body of therapeutic horseback riding, and more than 100 volunteers annually, more than 200 children and adults with physical, cognitive and developmental disabilities are served each year. The limitations these individuals face are replaced by the freedom of handling and riding a horse, and their gains in physical strength and self-confidence continue to make a positive impact in their daily lives.
All proceeds from the evening will provide scholarship support for students with demonstrated financial need.
For information or tickets, call 732-842-4000, ext. 4312 or visit www.spuronline.org.
