Barnabas Horse Foundation 2021 Events Recap
2021 was an interesting year for fundraising events for Barnabas with the pandemic, but our community really came through. While we were not able to hold our annual hoedown, the largest fundraiser for Barnabas, we were able to have smaller events that helped keep the therapy horses well fed and cared for.
The Cornhole Tournament was attended by locals and several professional players in June, with over 25 teams participating.
In July, we held a virtual Pony Swim – a race of rubber ducks with horse heads – with 250 ponies sponsored. The first three finishers won prize baskets donated by area businesses. This event was so successful that we have doubled the number of ponies for 2022!
In November, the Barnabas staff and volunteers dressed as elves and ran Santa’s Castle at the Dickens Christmas Show at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center, taking pictures of young and old alike with Santa Claus. It was the largest turnout we have had in six years of doing this!
Barnabas wrapped up the year in December with Hot Chocolate and Horses, an annual event open to anyone and everyone. Over 300 guests stopped by the farm to enjoy hot chocolate, play games, see demonstrations, and meet their favorite therapy horse. While it was a challenging year, over $23,000 was raised.
