The Fidelis Foundation Hosts the Spring in the Saddle Family Fun'raiser Event May 16th in Delray Beach, FL
Saturday, May 23, 2009
“Events like Spring in the Saddle help spread the word about the foundation and provide an outlet for the children we serve to forget about their troubles for a few hours and run, play and feel safe. It’s amazing to watch our horses melt their defense mechanisms and unlock their little hearts, helping them heal and move forward during this difficult season.” says Stacy Gormley, the founder of the Fidelis Foundation.
Gormley, also an equine trainer and instructor, explains why she started the foundation and why equine assisted programs are so important. “I was a house parent for two foster homes run by 4Kids of South Florida and there I saw a need from the children to feel the kind of love and support horses provide. They needed an environment where they could feel at ease and safe again. The barn, our trainers and the horses provide an environment where the children can relax and release barriers preventing them from developing meaningful relationships.”
Admission to the Spring in the Saddle event is $25. To donate raffle items, sponsor, pre-purchase tickets or to purchase a ticket for a family from 4Kids of South Florida or Oasis, please contact email@example.com.
The Spring in the Saddle fundraiser event will begin at 2pm, rain or shine, at the Sunshine Meadows Equestrian Village which is located at 16668 Winner’s Circle, Delray Beach, FL, 33446.
