8th Anniversary Spaghetti Dinner

On Sunday, July 28th, we held our 8th Anniversary Spaghetti Dinner at Harold’s Cave Creek Corral. It was a huge success, and we have many thank yous to express. 


Thank you to Margaret and her team at Harold’s Cave Creek Corral for hosting the event for the past 8 years. They never disappoint! The food was so delicious and the event ran smoothly as always.


Also, a big thank you to Bobby Freeman for Emceeing and being the Auctioneer during the live auction for the big Diamondbacks Suite package that he procured for us. Thank you to the Arizona Diamondbacks for their generous donation.


Thank you to Jody Swink, our trainer with No Sweat Natural Horsemanship who answered a lot of questions about horse training during the Q&A.  


Additional thank yous go to all the volunteers who helped at the event: Charlene, Sandy, Bucky, Stephanie, Helen, Louise and Beth. And thank you to volunteers Louise, Helen and Denise for their silent auction donations. Also, thank you to Addie, Ava, Faith and Lindsey with Momentum Volleyball Club for serving the delicious spaghetti dinner to all of the attendees.


And finally, thank you to ALL the donors of the silent auction items, to all the bidders and winners of the silent auction items, and participants in the 50/50 raffle. The final tally indicates we raised just over $6,000!


Since we are a 100% volunteer-run organization, all of the money raised goes directly to the horses for feed, supplements, medical, dental and foot care. 

A special thank you goes out to these companies and individuals who so generously donated items for our silent auction.

7th Anniversary Spaghetti Dinner


It was so much fun at our 7th Anniversary Spaghetti Dinner! Eighty-five people joined us, and it was great to see some regulars and some new faces.

We raised just over $4,100 for our horses!

There are a lot of people to thank ...

All the credit goes to our Board members, Michele Anderson-Charney and Liz Ott and our webmaster, Beth Laster. They put together the advertising, an awesome Silent Auction and horse-related items to sell.


Thank you, Margaret and the people, at Harold's Corral who always cook up a delicious spaghetti dinner for us. 

Thank you to Greg and Glennda Freeman for the five members of your Momentum Girls Volleyball team, Maddie, Lindsey, Ava, Amelia, and Addie and our Trainer's daughter, Anna, who volunteered as our servers. Aiden Freeman helped to pass out the certificates. 

Thank you to Leslie Briefman who was our announcer and kept the activities lively and on time.

It was a nice surprise when the 50/50 raffle was won by Bobby Freeman, and he donated it to the horses! Thank you Bobby!

Thank you to Mike Crowley for the pictures and who also captured the "gate crasher" mini who tried to get in.

And a final thanks to all who made this event so wonderful!
