Special Events

Raising funds to help pay for services for our most vulnerable patients and making friends that support Rocking Horse Community Health Center with their dollars, their time and their talents is what our special events are all about!

 

Annual Golf Classic- Rocking Horse Community Health Center will hold its 15th Annual Golf Classic on Monday, June 19th, 2017 at Windy Knoll Golf Course. Last year the event raised nearly $45,000 to support programs to help the most vulnerable of our community. The golf outing  features a round of great golf, lunch, dinner, drinks on the course, par 3 games, awards for the top teams, and a unigue 50/50 experience as well as a raffle. The event is an excellent sponsorship opportunity for local businesses to act as Tee, Stable, Snack Station or Eagle Sponsors.

“Hoof it for the Horse” 5k Fun Run- This is an exciting new event for Rocking Horse Community Health Center. The 2017 5k Fun Run will be held September 9th. The first year, the 5K was held in  the neighborhood surrounding Rocking Horse Center with over 60 participants. In the past nine years, the event has attracted over 300 walkers and runners. Sponsorships are available!

Holiday Angel Tree- Every year Rocking Horse Center Auxiliary sponsors an Angel Tree for the holidays. Rocking Horse staff members provide names of patient families who are in need of assistance for gifts for their children. Community members attend an Open House to choose names of children to sponsor. In 2016, over 500 children were provided with Angel Tree gifts.  We expect this number to keep growing. If you would like to contribute to Angel Tree please call 324-1111 ext 110.

Annual Back to School Drive- Every year Rocking Horse Community Health Center collects new school supplies for several of our neediest patients. Sometimes all you need in life to prepare you for success are the right tools, and we want to ensure that our patients are able to return to school with all the supplies they need to succeed. In 2016 we were able to provide back packs filled with school supplies to over 300 children. With the generous support of many individuals and organizations in the community we are able to provide these supplies to more children every year.

Annual Coat Drive- During the winter months, Rocking Horse Community Health Center provides new and gently used coats to our patients. Last year over 700 coats were handed out to our patients. At times, we have as many as 45 children on a waiting list for coats that will fit them. Many of these children have to stand out in the snow waiting for buses in only sweatshirts or light jackets. Coats are an urgent need for these children, but we can only distribute them as they are donated to us. New and gently used coats can be donated to Rocking Horse Center at any time throughout the year so we can be prepared when the cold weather arrives. Donations of hats, scarves, mittens, and gloves are also greatly appreciated.
