The Lee-Mar Ranch Equine Center will hold its annual Raise the Roof Fundraiser at the Prairie's Edge Casino this Friday beginning at 5:00 p.m.
Since 2010, and a group of volunteers that now exceeds 60 has been offering therapeutic horse riding sessions for youth facing a variety of difficulties ranging from autism to learning disabilities. In addition, the ranch is used to board horses, host clinics as well as other events such as the National High School Rodeo.
The Equine Center has raised all of its funds through its annual "Raise the Roof" event, individual donations and sponsorships. Thus far, over $60,000 has been raised to rehabilitate the 1950s built structure and to support the ranch's therapeutic riding programming.
This year's annual fundraiser will offer attendees a buffet, a silent and live auction and a musical performance by the Hicktown Mafia.
Tickets for the event are $25 prior to the evening and $30 at the door. Children 12 and under are $15 at the door only.
Tickets may be purchased before the event by call 507-828-0526 or from volunteers and board members of the Equine Center.
