Diann Lovette, Beta Theta treasurer, presented the check to Elaine Barton, one of the founders and a board member of HWAM. The non-profit therapeutic horseback riding program targets individuals with disabilities.
HWAM's certified equine-assisted health care instructors serve people with cognitive, emotional, physical, and behavioral disabilities. Children make up to three-quarters of their client base. They serve Lake, Orange, Seminole, and Polk counties.
Beta Theta's March 7 Mardi Gras event raised more than $15,000 for local high school scholarships and multiple community agencies. The group's next Mardi Gras will be held on February 6, 2016 at the Clermont ARC.
"We are grateful for the loyal support of our community," said Jackie Ulch, active member of Beta Theta. Tickets for the next Mardi Gras are available for $45, as are various levels of sponsorship, all of which can be purchased from the sisters of Beta Theta.
