The Peninsula Volunteers are hosting a fundraiser on June 23 at the National Center for Equine Facilitated Therapy in Woodside – and the community is invited to join in on the festivities, which benefit services to the aging. Co-chaired by Jill Jerrehian and Terri Carville, the hoedown will begin at 4:00 pm with “thirst quenchers” and “trailtizers,” followed by the dinner at 5:30 pm featuring Harry’s Hofbrau “Best in the West” barbeque.
Music for line dancing will be provided by the Dick Green Band. There will also be a vaulting show, cowgirl act, parade of miniature horses and goats, panning for gold, and gaming. In attendance will be the famous “Butt Sketcher” from Texas. Dress is Western casual.
Tickets are $175 and may be purchased by calling Cathy Duhring at Peninsula Volunteers, Inc. at (650) 326-0665.
