February 25 - BIG BOWLING FUNDRAISER - The big day for our 5th Annual Bowling Fundraiser is Saturday, February 25th, 11am-5pm. As always, we will have two sessions of bowling, two silent auctions, 50/50 raffle, sponsorship calendar, cupcake table, jewelry sales, photo booth, face-painting, pizza, and a trophy ceremony. Thanks to you, HP raised over $28,000 last year, which has been vital in keeping our riders in the saddle each week. We need your help again in 2017, so please mark those calendars and invite your friends and family to join us on February 25th. If your schedule does not allow you to attend, please consider supporting the event by purchasing an ad in our calendar, donating an auction basket, purchasing tickets for low-income families, or buying raffle tickets.
