SANTA ROSA, CA
Members of Our Lady of Mount Carmel RAOC volunteered at the Wounded Veterans Polo Benefit, presented by The Commandery of St. Francis, Order of St. John, Knights Hospitaller. 100% of the over $100,00 in proceeds from the event went to: Project H.O.P.E. (equine assisted therapy for vets suffering PTSD), LavaLake Injured Veterans LIVE (wilderness camping and riding program), Project Healing Waters (fly fishing for disabled vets), and Bay Area Association of Disabled Sailors, Veterans Program. While working at the check-in and wine tasting tables, we also enjoyed an incredible polo tournament, and the half time performance by the Riata Ranch Cowboy Girls, a world class, international trick riding and Roman riding troupe that performed for the Queen of England at her Diamond Jubilee pageant.
