Grace Foundation in El Dorado Hills

I am such a bad blogger! I have been so busy lately and have not been very good about staying on top of this…but I promise that I am going to go into blog overdrive during these next couple weeks to post on some of the projects I have been working on. I feel like I need to clone myself to be able to get everything done in a day!!! If anyone out that has a good system for staying organized…please share…I could use the help!

So to get me started on my blog attack – I want to share some images from my visit to a non-profit organization called Grace Foundation. This organization rescues horses, rehabilitates them and then will use them for therapy for children and adults with disabilities. Beth DeCaprio is the woman who runs this organization and she is absolutely AMAZING! I am so humbled by the depth of her heart and her willingness to give everything she has to help these animals. Her operation in El Dorado Hills is extensive and she has a staff of wonderful volunteers there to help her take care of the horses, the dogs, the cats, the pony’s and the newly added Llama! I was just so happy being up there surrounded by these animals knowing how well they are now being taken care of and knowing how much help they will be giving children. Beth has many programs that help children with disabilities learn life skills from caring for the horses, and children that come from troubled backgrounds that are able to learn how to care for animals and really change their life for the better. I can’t begin to tell you about all of the wonderful programs she has on her ranch. I encourage anyone who is interested to check out her website or better yet – visit her ranch. I promise you will be completely moved and inspired by this woman like I was.

There will be a big fundraising event sponsored by Keller Williams Realty Fair Oaks for the foundation on May 17th. They are going to have a Texas Hold em tournament, silent auction/raffles, pony rides and lots of great food. If you are interested in volunteering, donating or attending – please call Greg Varozza at 223-6688 for information.
