There will be a cash bar, light fare snacks, lots of dessert and prizes - all for the cause of helping trauma survivors in New Jersey - veterans and youth - find trust and coping skills with guidance from horses.

Comedic talent is provided by The Comedy Shoppe.

The Hillsborough-based nonprofit organization will dedicate the funds raised to provide EAP (Equine Assisted Psychotherapy) group therapy sessions for moderate to severe trauma survivors, primarilyat-risk/high-risk youth teens, PTSD veterans and bereaved children.

SRoL has found that the majority of trauma survivors either do not want, or simply cannot "talk about it" and so utilizing an un-mounted EAP approach can go a long way to establishing trust and finding personal coping skills.

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

The Elks Lodge is at 165 Route 31, Flemington.

Further nformation is available on the group's website.
