Dear Silo, Dave and I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for a successful 6th annual fundraising open house event which was held on July 13, 2013. It was a great success again this year reaching our goal of $20,000.
The volunteers did a great job and worked very hard; without their dedication the rescue would not be possible.
A special thank you to all who attended, it was overwhelming to see the support for our cause. Many commented on how much enjoyment they had spending the afternoon on the farm. There was something for everyone including a garage sale, tack sale, BBQ, bake sale, pony rides, face painting and prize table. The petting zoo was a hit with Cashew and Peanut, the mini donkeys being the favourite!
We would also like to thank our event sponsors for providing items and supplies; we are very grateful for your donations.
Lastly, we want to thank you- the media for the continued coverage of Whispering Hearts Horse Rescue’s ongoing operations; it is the public awareness that bring us all together to make a difference.
The proceeds from our event will help with the ongoing care and expenses of over 60 horses, building 4 new paddocks, vaccinating over 60 horses at a cost of $6000 and purchasing much needed hay for the winter. It is this annual event that allows us the opportunity to continue our mission to help horses in need.
Whispering Hearts Horse Rescue has been humbled by the generosity of so many people that have been touched by our rescue efforts. In the past six years, thanks to the overwhelming aid from the public, Dave and I have been able to build a quarantine area for new arrivals; a new barn addition with 5 stalls; fatten up hungry bodies; heal wounds; attend to feet and health issues; and most importantly nurture over 180 lost souls.
We could not do this without help.
This has been an amazing team effort between the Public, Volunteers and generous Community Partners.
Thank You – the Horses Thank You!
Brenda and Dave Thompson
