Hoedown in the Hills–October 22, 2016
The San Elijo Hills Women’s Club (SEHWC) will present Hoedown in the Hills on Saturday, October 22, 2016, at the Williams Barn in San Marcos’ Walnut Grove Park. All proceeds from this event will benefit Straight from the Heart, a local support and outreach organization serving 5000 North County foster children and their families.
For just $45 per person, you and your friends can enjoy delicious chicken, pork and tri tip BBQ and several sides catered by The Flying Pig Restaurant. Beer, wine, iced tea and soft drinks, lively music, line dancing, and the opportunity to bid on amazing silent and live auction items, gift baskets and personal services will insure a fun-packed evening for all. Don’t be left in the dust! Tickets are now available online at sehwc.weebly.com. Y’all come now, ya hear?
Request for Auction Items
Would you like to get involved in SEHWC’s fall fundraising efforts? If so, please consider donating an item for the silent and live auctions to be held during the Hoedown. By reaching out to family, friends and local merchants for donations such as dinners at local restaurants, golf games or lessons, weekend getaways, and other products and services, you are helping raise funds for Straight From The Heart. Alternately, you could get together with a friend and create a themed basket for the auction instead. Put on your creative hat and join in the fun! Contact email@example.com if you would like to participate and/or need additional information.
At the July 12 meeting, San Elijo Hills Women’s Club members and guests enjoyed an informative talk by Heather Disher, Development Manager for the Helen Woodward Animal Shelter, who brought three-week old kittens Yogi and Bear to meet and greet everyone. “People help animals and animals help people,” is the shelter’s motto, and Ms. Disher shared their numerous programs for both. Pet Encounter Therapy Program for those in need (25,000 interactions per year), a Therapeutic Riding Program which serves 48 clients each week, and Club Pet which provides day care and special programs for pets were three of the programs highlighted during the evening.
In addition to special programs and community outreach, the Helen Woodward Animal Shelter supervises 3300 pet adoptions a year through a structured process that includes matching the adoptive family with the appropriate pet, providing training in the care of the new pet, and supervising introductions to family members and to pets already in the home. Every pet in the care of this shelter finds a new home, according to Ms. Disher.
Timely tips for caring for our furry, feathered and other pet friends during the summer months were also shared.
