Comedy Night Benefits Spring Reins Of Life

RARITAN TWP., N.J. — A night of comedy, dinner and dessert on Saturday, April 21 from 5:30 to 10 p.m. at The Flemington Elks Lodge will benefit Spring Reins of Life.

The fourth annual Swing Into Spring event headliner is Dustin Chafin, featured is Bill Chiang along with Marc Kaye, Mark Riccadonna, Buddy Harris and Mike DiAlto (MC: Darren Ventre).

Ticket includes sampling buffet, dessert and hours of fun with a full service cash bar all night. Attendees can win prizes while supporting the cause of helping veteran and youth trauma survivors in New Jersey to find trust and personalized coping skills from a special herd of horses.

Based in Three Bridges, N.J., Spring Reins of Life (SRoL) will utilize the funding raised at Comedy Night to provide EAP (Equine Assisted Psychotherapy) group therapy sessions for moderate to severe trauma survivors, namely: at-risk/high-risk youth teens, PTSD veterans and bereaved children by way of the horse. SRoL has found that the majority of trauma survivors either does not want, or simply cannot “talk about it” and so utilizing an un-mounted EAP approach can go a long way to establishing trust, finding personal coping skills and present moment without saying anything.

Tickets are $35 with the option to add additional donation.

Those who cannot attend can make a tax deductible donation for any amount at: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/4th-annual-swing-into-spring-comedy-night-tickets-42976726546  

SRoL provides EAP services under the EAGALA Model certified program and since there is no riding involved it is not necessary to have any prior horse experience to achieve results — in fact most of SRoL clients have never been in contact with a horse before. The horses provide immediate ‘present moment’, a space of peace, a natural environment to build trust, and due to their size / power coping and resiliency skills which create pathways for more of the same. Sir Winston Churchill may have said it best in the quote “There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man”. The EAGALA Model has seen a massive growth rate of over 400% in the last three years. EAGALA (Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association) has certified programs in all 50 United States and over 50 countries offering an acute intervention based and solution focused therapeutic model for an extremely wide array of mental health issues.

SRoL recently began an alliance with Good Grief Princeton called Pony Pals and will be ready to go once nearly $9,000 is raised to cover these costs in 2018.
