WAGGA’S Riding for the Disabled (RDA) is asking people to saddle up for a “black tie and boots ball” to raise money for an obstacle challenge course at its Plumpton Road complex.
“The obstacle challenge course will not only provide suitably-leveled challenges of RDA for members, but will also create the opportunity for RDA to hire the facility to the general public,” said one of the ball organisers, Penny Lamont.
“That would generate a much-needed income stream help meet the ever-increasing ongoing expenses for much-needed equipment, including specialised saddles and stirrups.”
Mrs Lamont said the income stream would also help pay for physiotherapists and day-to-day costs.
The ball will be held on October 15 in the RDA’s main arena on the corner of Gregadoo and Plumpton roads.
Tickets cost $150 a head and include entertainment, food, wine, beer and cider. It will run from 7pm until late.
"We are all looking forward to this ball,” said RDA president, Heather Baker.
“Our arena will look amazing and it will be a lot of fun.
“A huge thanks to the community and businesses for the great donations we have received already. "
Bookings can be made at the Wagga Civic Theatre or at tinyurl.com/rdablacktieball.
