Successful 2nd Annual Wine & Feed Fundraiser
Our October 1st 2nd Annual Wine & Feed Fundraiser was a huge success as we held the event out at our barn for the first time! Over 80 people attended and enjoyed the company of our herd over wine, champagne, beer and a variety of food and desserts.
The Rancho Santa Fe Review covered the event and you can read more about the event and watch a slideshow of great pictures here.
Artwork from the San Diego Brain Injury Foundation (SDBIF) was also on display at our fundraiser and the SDBIF's COO Susan Hansen attended the event. Pegasus and the SDBIF are in discussions as to how our organizations may further collaborate and we will update you as things develop.
Closing Thoughts From Our President
I am both pleased and proud to report that Pegasus has now serviced approximately 900 participants since the beginning of the 2011 calendar year which puts us well ahead of our 2011 year end goal to reach 750-1,000 participants!
However, our main constraint continues to be funding. While Pegasus works to expand and grow our programs, we have an acute need to acquire a 6-8 passenger van (new or used--we are not picky!) so that we can transport service members to and from our barn. If you know of anyone who may be able to assist us in locating and acquiring an available van, please contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please remember that Pegasus relies solely on the generosity of our donors to keep our project on course and find it in your hearts to continue to donate to our worthy cause. Word of mouth is always the key to organic growth so don't forget to spread the word to your friends, family and colleagues as we must continue to raise funds in order to reach out to the thousands of returning combat veterans who have served our country with honor and pride.
