2014 EVENTS

TLS Veterans

November 18 (Tues) 4:00-5:00pm: In honor of our Veterans, our minis will be visiting the TLS (Transitional Living Services) McHenry Food Pantry. TLS Veterans (legally known as Transitional Living Services) was founded in 1996 and since 2001 has owned and operated New Horizons, a center in Hebron, Illinois, for homeless veterans who want a chance to rebuild their lives. Veterans from WWII, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, Operation Desert Storm and OEF/OIF have participated in our services and have gone on to find employment, reconnect with their communities and rejoin their families. Thank you Veterans! www.tlsveterans.org

November 23 (Sun) 1-2pm: DaVita Dialysis of Buffalo Grove: visit at Silver Lining Equestrian (our home farm) and $1000 check presentation: DaVita chose Mane in Heaven as their Charity of Choice and presented our mission and pictures of visits to the DaVita corporate offices. They picked Mane in Heaven to receive a $1000 donation and they will present a large check for a photo opportunity (think lottery size cardboard check presentation) with their employees who will get a chance to visit and love our minis.

No visits weekend of November 29 and 30th: Happy Thanksgiving!

December 6, 2014 (Sat): Time TBD: Donald Stephens Convention Center, Rosemont: Operation North Pole (www.operationnorthpole.org)

WINTER HIATUS: we will not be visiting the remaining weekends of December so that everyone can enjoy their holidays. We only have one visit per month  scheduled for Jan/Feb/March (already booked) to keep our volunteers and our horses in practice (weather permitting for visits).

January 18th, 2015 (Sun) Time 11am-1pm: At The Belvedere 1170 W. Devon Ave, Elk Grove Village IL; We have been invited to “The Greatest Party on Earth” for pediatric blood cancer patients, hosted by the Leukemia Research Foundation. Children and their families are invited to “Step Right Up” for this Carnival-themed party and visit with our therapy horses (weather permitting).

February 14th, 2015 (Sat) 10:30-12noon: Gable Point, Crystal Lake IL; Valentine’s Day Party with the residents, including our wonderful friend Sally Ruppert who designed our Mane in Heaven logo and tagline, “Bringing a little heaven to those in need.”  She is an extremely talented graphic artist with an eye for perfection when it comes to logos, flyers, pamphlets, business cards, etc, all of which she designed for us. We are lucky to call Sally our friend and are excited to visit her in her new home community.
