Lifestyle: Carousel Rach: Heart of the West

Carousel Rach: Heart of the WestWith only a few weeks to go, we are busily planning our major fundraising event of the year – Heart of the West – coming up on Saturday, August 25th.  We hope that you will save the date and join us at Agua Dulce Airport as we celebrate and raise much needed funds for the children at the ranch.    Enjoy a delicious dinner catered by Salt Creek Grille, an exciting live and silent auction, dancing under the stars by SOS Entertainment, fine spirits from Vincent Hill Station and a heartwarming demonstration by the kids of Carousel Ranch.  It's the perfect setting to have a great evening knowing that every dollar spent, makes a real difference…one child at a time.

At Carousel Ranch, our children amaze us with their strength, determination and courage.  These kids face more in a day than most of us face in an entire lifetime.  

Though life remains challenging for non-profits (as it does for everyone), our hopes and dreams for the ranch continue to grow and the needs of our children do not go away.  Though raising money is harder than ever, we remain focused on our mission…making a difference in the lives of the children that we serve.  As always, we are hopeful and optimistic – knowing that if we just keep doing what we do, for the right reasons – that things will come together. 

This event is always an important evening for us, raising the funds that literally enable us to continue and grow.  Without each and every friend and supporter – our work would simply not be possible.  Each is an essential part of our Carousel Ranch family.

For us, the most important part of this night – is the children’s demonstration.  It is in this way that we hope to show our guests exactly where their donations go.  If each of you were able to come out to the Ranch, you would see each dollar at work.  But most, unfortunately, never make it to the actual ranch.  At Heart of the West, we are able to show you a small sample of what is made possible with your support.  Amazing things happen every day at Carousel Ranch – and by being taking part in this event, you become a part of every success.

So come out and enjoy dinner under the stars – remembering that your generosity makes a huge impact on a child’s life.  When you are the highest bidder on the auction, know that not only do you win, but a child does as well.  Each casino ticket that you buy, every drink at the bar, every donation made – goes directly toward a child’s therapy. 

Together with each of you, we have created a place where children and families find a bit of hope.  A place, where we never stop believing in what these children can and will do. 

We hope to see you there!!  Make your reservations today by visiting our website @ or call the ranch directly for more information – (661) 268-8010.
