  •     Lee-Mar Ranch Equine Center’s  4th Annual “Raise the Roof” fund raiser will be held at Prairie’s Edge Casino Resort on Friday, March 28th.  Watch for our ads in this publication for details.
        As our many volunteers have been out working to sell tickets and solicit items for our live and silent auctions many of the contacts have said, “ We have already given to your benefit” or something to that effect. As we have investigated that reply we find that the fund raiser they donated to was the “A Night at the Races”.  That was a fund raiser for the private Echo area Split Rail Saddle Club.  That club is not a part of Lee-Mar Equine Center so we receive no benefit from their fund raising. Some of their members are volunteers at Lee-Mar or have been involved with Lee-Mar Ranch Equine Center in the past and that may lead to the confusion.  
        So just to be clear, if you are approached by us for donations or to purchase a ticket your investment is fully tax deductible as we are a 501c(3) non-profit.  Your investment will be used to further the improvements to the facility and improve/expand our therapeutic riding programs for our persons with mental, physical and behavioral challenges.   
        As always, we are very thankful for the great support we receive from our community and surrounding area.  Let’s really “Raise the Roof” on Friday night, the 28th of March.
