The 19th Annual Lucky Hearts Casino Night benefiting Hearts & Horses Therapeutic Riding Center was a huge success for the organization with record breaking fundraising of over $325,000 (net) for their programs. The event on September 28 hosted 750 guests at the Embassy Suites Loveland and had a robust Live and Silent Auction that added to the evening’s festivities. The program consisted of stories of impact that Hearts & Horses has on their riders including veterans, youth-at-risk, and therapeutic riding for people with physical and cognitive disabilities. The Live Auction, led by auctioneer John Clatworthy, brought big numbers for highly sought-after items including a hand-made mosaic of their late Therapy Donkey, Raymond. The guests were entertained by dueling pianos while playing in the bustling casino while the Silent Auction bidding came to an end. It was wonderful night full of fun, inspiration and hope for all people involved with Hearts & Horses.
