Windrush Farm Board Chairman Bob Gore stands with the Dances with Horses Gala auctioneer, Jim Braude of NECN. The event raised $120,000 to benefit the clients with disabilities at the farm.

Windrush Farm in North Andover and Boxford hosted its annual Dances with Horses Gala on Saturday, October 26, presented by The Bruins Charitable Foundation and Boston Private Bank and Trust to benefit the clients with disabilities at Windrush Farm.

The event was sponsored by the DS Solidworks and Nelson Mullins and supported by Kappy’s Fine Wine & Spirits, Commonwealth Wine & Spirits, Inc., Tito’s Vodka, & Barefoot Wine & Bubbly. Business sponsors included: NESCA, Bob’s Discount Furniture and North Suburban Eye.

In her remarks, Windrush Farm Executive Director Amanda Hogan thanked the event committee and all in attendance. “We thank the community of supporters who have made this event such a success. This year’s event is dedicated in memory of Dr. Paul Spiers, Windrush Farm’s board chair who passed away in early September. We are also honored by all of the attendees’ generosity and belief in the Windrush Farm mission. Your support helps Windrush to continue to offering life-changing activities and therapies to more than 1,800 people each year.”

This year’s special guest was occupational therapist, Monica Wu of Reinbow Therapy. Monica runs the hippotherapy program at Windrush Farm. “There are intrinsic benefits of a farm setting with no sterile white walls like in a hospital or clinical setting which can be quite scary and not very inviting for little ones,” says Monica. “In addition, there is something so magical about connecting and bonding with a warm, living, sensitive, non judgmental and beautiful animal. My clients do not feel like they are receiving “therapy” and really have no idea that they are working so hard because they are having fun.”

Close to 300 guests attended the event held at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel. The evening included silent and live auctions, open bar, dinner, and dancing and all proceeds benefit the kids, adults and veterans with disabilities at Windrush Farm.

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s “Dances with Horses” Gala. The night was a huge success and made close to $140,000 for the program.

This year’s auction featured our new and nifty silent auction tool, Bidpal, an electric bidding device. And boy oh boy did it get the crowds going.

One of the coolest items was the chance to have your name as a character in Michael Palmer’s newest book! All in all, the evening went well and everything was a huge hit. We could not have done it without you.

Thank you to our presenting sponsor, Boston Private Bank & Trust Company, our corporate sponsor, Boston Bruins Foundation, and business sponsors, DS Solidworks, Bob’s Discount Furniture and North Suburban Eye. Thanks also to our in-kind donors, Kappy’s, Commonwealth Wine & Spirits, Barefoot Wine, Harpoon Brewery and Tito’s Vodka.

And of course a thanks to everyone involved. We could not have done it without you.
