TROT has helped children and adults in the Tucson community since 1974. But without the communities help, TROT wouldn't be as successful as it is today.
This weekend, TROT is holding the year's largest fundraiser: the annual Hearts & Horses gala. The money raised at the gala helps TROT continue to help clients year round.
There are silent and live auction items including one of a kind artwork, jewelry, and even a ride in a private plane.
"The money we will raise at this event will allow us to help so many people and ensure that we do not need to send people away who cannot afford our services," said Lesley Rich, TROT's Executive Director. "Without the support that we see year after year from the community, we wouldn't be as successful as we are today."
- What: Hearts & Horses Gala
- When: Saturday, April 27th, 6 p.m.
- Where: Loews Ventana Canyon, 7000 N Resort Dr, Tucson, AZ 85750
TROT staff and volunteers use therapeutic riding strategies for children and adults with disabilities and special needs. These therapies help improve balance, coordination, motor skills, and even speaking skills. Each semester, the students and volunteers form special bonds and friendships with each other, and the TROT therapy horses. Volunteers will tell you that miracles happen every day!
