Maryland Therapeutic Riding held its Derby Day Benefit on Saturday, May 7th.
The annual event welcomed 340 attendees to MTR's 25-acre farm in Crownsville, for an evening of mock betting, a lively hat contest, seated dinner, and a live showing of the Derby race.
Nearly $300,000 was raised to benefit equine-assisted therapies and activities for children and adults with special needs. A challenge grant of $50,000 from the Taishoff Family Foundation helped raise more than $63,000 through a live auction effort.Next year's event is scheduled for Saturday, May 6th, 2017.
