EQUI-KIDS Therapeutic Riding Program, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization located in Virginia Beach, VA, held its 7th Annual Stall Ball on November 23, 2013. With record attendance of over 700 people, EQUI-KIDS is delighted to announce that the event raised more than $130,000 to support program services that benefit the special needs community. This unique signature fundraising event was held at the facility inside the Indoor Arena and 24-stall horse barn. “All of us at EQUI-KIDS are blown away by the overwhelming support of our event sponsors and guests. The 7th Annual Stall Ball was certainly the best one yet and we are extremely thankful!” said Executive Director Jill Haag.
