Sun, April 30, 2017, 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM MDT
The famous Triple Crown winning racehorse Secretariat’s grandson, McCool, recently became one of the 22 rescued horses at Charis Youth Ranch, a sanctuary for kids and horses located just outside of Fort Collins, Colorado. The ranch is pleased to announce it will be having a fundraiser on SUNDAY, APRIL 30TH at 2 pm hosted by Lyric Cinema Cafe in the Fort Collins Masonic Temple at 225 West Oak Street featuring the Disney movie, Secretariat, on the big screen with a 10 minute introduction before the film and a 30 minute Q&A afterward. Seating for the movie is limited to 300. Additionally, there will be a silent auction benefitting the ranch.
"We are so grateful to Lyric Cinema for sponsoring this wonderful fundraiser in honor of McCool, for Charis Youth Ranch!" says Tracy Cookman, CEO of Charis Youth Ranch. "We really appreciate the generosity of our community in supporting the work that we do with at-risk kids and our rescued horses who serve them."
Charis is a volunteer-powered 501c(3) non-profit that rescues, rehabilitates, and provides permanent sanctuary for horses, including retired racehorses, by transitioning them into new careers and providing sanctuary for life. Charis endeavors to connect youth from all walks of life with these rescued horses to learn unconditional love and trust, which facilitates healing for both equine and child. Youth programs have tripled in number for the last three summers. In 2016, the ranch provided 21 youth programs and served approximately 200 kids from Turning Point Youth and Family Development, The Matthews House and the local community. Additionally, Charis is working toward gaining certifications for Equine Assisted Psychotherapy by the end of 2017 and is also planning a military Veteran’s program. Funding to open Charis House, a sanctuary for at-risk girls rescued from trafficking is in the works.
The ranch relies on community support and is always looking for individuals and businesses to partner with them as promoters, as volunteers, and as donors. The ranch exists because of compassionate, generous individuals and companies that support their mission: Broken horses healing broken children.
