Naples Therapeutic Riding Center converts barn dance signature fundraiser to appeal with virtual elements
Naples Therapeutic Riding Center’s
(NTRC) signature fundraiser, Bootstrap Boogie Barn Dance, held every November, has been converted to an online appeal with virtual elements due to health and safety concerns as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. This would have been the charity’s 15th year hosting the Barn Dance on its campus. Revenue from the new Barn Dance Appeal is important now more than ever due to the lack of program revenue and loss of fundraising income as a result of having to postpone programs and cancel fundraisers for five months during stay-at-home measures. Donations towards the first-ever Barn Dance Appeal will be accepted now through Nov. 14, culminating in a live virtual Pony Pie Bingo game. To donate to the Barn Dance Appeal, click here
