Talisman Therapeutic Riding hosted its signature fundraiser on Saturday, May 7th at Talisman Farm in Grasonville. The Fifth Annual Derby Day featured a live broadcast of the Run for the Roses, along with complimentary mint juleps and other festive beverages, hors d’oeuvres, a formal buffet dinner, and live and silent auctions. In lieu of the typical horse demonstrations, guests were treated to a visit from a group of foxhounds, courtesy of the Wicomico Hunt Club. About $30,000 was raised to benefit the TTR.
