HETRA Prepares for 18th Annual Blue Jeans & Dreams Fundraiser

Join the Heartland Equine Therapeutic Riding Academy (HETRA) (www.HETRA.org) for the 18th Annual Blue Jeans & Dreams Fundraiser, to be held on Saturday, April 28 from 5-11 p.m. at the HETRA Barn in Gretna, NE.

Through generous sponsorships and contributions from the community, this signature event, which supports the Participant Sponsorship Fund, enables HETRA to keep fees as low as possible for those who may already be overwhelmed by expenses not encountered by the average family.

Guests will enjoy an exceptional BBQ buffet catered by Hy-Vee, live and silent auctions, a meet and greet with the therapy horses and line dancing. This year local Omaha actor, singer, dancer, and radio personality Dave Wingert will emcee, and Kris Covi, local comedian, will be the auctioneer. Attendees won’t want to miss the superb energy and frivolity that these two exude, and are encouraged to purchase a table or tickets center stage today.

Reservations can be made at www.HETRA.org. Individual reservations are $65, and reserved tables are $550. Prices increase after April 6. Attire is casual western wear.

HETRA thanks and celebrates their 2018 Host Couple Tia and John McLaughlin, and their daughter Marissa who is a HETRA participant. HETRA also thanks Event Sponsors Lou and Kathi Rotella, Crouch Recreation, and Hy-Vee.
