2015 Gala Heroes and Horses, Jewels & Jeans

Imagine the Possibilities

Imagine NCEFT.

On a warm Saturday evening under a beautiful orange moon, nearly 250 people gathered in our covered arena to imagine some amazing possibilities. We imagined building our Financial Aid Fund so patients will continue receiving our therapy services even if they cannot afford to pay for treatment. We imagined supporting our 15 therapy horses and maintaining our 100-year-old barn and property. We imagined funding our Veterans Program so we can continue to treat every military Veteran who walks through our gate at no charge.

The Heroes and Horses, Jewels and Jeans Gala is our most important fundraiser of the year. Together with our Sponsors and Underwriters, Saturday night’s patrons helped raise over $341,000 to support NCEFT’s life-changing work. For over forty years, NCEFT has provided hope and healing to thousands of children, adults and Veterans with disabilities. We cannot make a difference to so many without your compassionate assistance. We thank you for your gift of hope and healing. It means so much to so many.
