Benefit to raise money for therapeutic riding program


Food and wine pairings, horses and art will be the center of a fundraiser for Little Britches Therapeutic Riding beginning with cocktail hour at 4:30 p.m. Nov. 7 at the Woodward House in Bethlehem.
The cost for the five course wine dinner is $150 per person with $50 from each ticket donated to Little Britches, organizers said in a statement.
Local photographer Heather Norris will hold her gallery opening that evening with the inaugural showing of many of her most eclectic pieces and portraiture, the statement said.
The menu for the evening includes a five course dinner of fois gras, sea scallops, duck and halibut each course complete with wine pairings to complement, the statement said.
For more information or to make reservations, call the Woodward House at (203) 266-6902.

Heather Norris Photography will be opening an eclectic display of her work at the Woodward House including dog portraits, children’s portraits, aerial photography, abstract prints and prints on metal, the statement said.
Norris also will display "a line of unusual shots which are her unique take on life’s quirky elements she refers to as Lifestyle With Attitude. Each piece of work will be for sale and a portion of the sale will go to Little Britches Therapeutic Riding," the statement said.
Little Britches is an equine assisted riding program that allows children who are physically, emotionally or developmentally challenged to interact with horses. Its mission is to expand the physical and emotional boundaries of children with special needs through sensory integration, self-esteem and physical strength building and mental well-being, the statement said.
