Ushering in the fall season, SPUR (Special People United to Ride) will host an evening of tastings and music to benefit its Scholarship Fund on Saturday, October 7 from 7 pm to 10 pm.

 

The venue is the beautiful, recently renovated farmhouse, site of the Tatum Park Holland Activity Center, located at 162 Holland Road, Middletown, NJ. In the historic homestead’s rooms and under a tent in its treed grounds, visitors will be able to sample a selection of fine wines, a variety of craft beers and an array of complementary cheeses, all accompanied by delicious light fare. The musicians of Delta Noir will add to the festivities with their brand of early jazz, blues and gypsy swing, and there will be chance and silent auctions.

 

SPUR is a 501(c)(3) organization that works in conjunction with the Monmouth County Park System and Sunnyside Equestrian Center to bring the benefits of therapeutic horsemanship to individuals with physical, cognitive and developmental disabilities.

In SPUR’s traditional program lessons, an average of 100 students participate in weekly sessions taught by certified instructors and supported by more than 100 trained volunteers. Lessons are tailored to each student’s unique physical and emotional needs. SPUR also offers programs for veterans and active military members (Horses for Heroes) as well as for school groups and individual middle school students.

 

SPUR students’ progress in strength, balance, and self-confidence not only provides a very special sense of accomplishment but also crosses over to enhance their daily lives.

 

Requests for financial aid rise each session. The mission of the SPUR Board of Directors is to ensure that no student is turned away from the programs due to financial need. This year the target is to raise more than $40,000 for the SPUR Scholarship Fund.
