Thank you again for your sponsorship donation for the 2017 Ride for Life Horse Fun Show for Heart Choices on July 8. Despite having to reschedule it from May 21 due to rain, we had a great turn out of over 60 riders! The weather was very nice and everyone had a great time. Best of all, the event raised just over $2,000 for Heart Choices to provide pregnancy and parenting education and support in Osborne and Smith Counties!

Again, thank you for your very generous donation. We welcome you to display the enclosed “thank you” for your customers to appreciate your faithful support to your community.

With sincere appreciation, Alice Thompson, Executive Director
