Local Youth Ranch Announces Fall Fundraiser Event


Dare to Dream Youth Ranch announced that its Fall Fest Fundraiser Event will be held Sunday, October 16, 2016.

The event will be held from 1:00-4:00 p.m., and features a wide range of attractions and opportunities to see all the ranch and its programs have to offer.

“It’s going to be a great time for all,” said Greg Savino, CEO at Dare to Dream Youth Ranch. “We’ll be having horse rides and hayrides, prizes, games and more. And our special musical guests, country band Renegade, will be performing live. Most of all, we want families to come and capture the vision for what this ranch can do for the kids who need it most.”

To add to the program, the event will feature a Star Wars theme including an appearance by the Fort Wayne area’s own 501st Rebel Legion of fan costume role players on-site as well as Dare to Dream’s own horses dressed as Star Wars characters.

“This is a really special event for kids, their parents and grandparents,” said Michelle Buck, Director of Operations at Dare to Dream Youth Ranch. “We are proud of our volunteers, our program, and we want the community to see how we use horses to reach kids of all walks of life to dream bigger dreams.”
