Thorncroft’s annual Victory Gallop on March 31, 2012

On a rainy Thursday afternoon I headed out to the ‘burbs, the Mainline to be exact to join Thorncroft’s annual Victory Gallop committee members in addressing invitations to 27th annual event set for Saturday, March 31 (It was so much fun chatting with the ladies. Our hostess Andee Shapiro and I discovered we lived 2 blocks away from each other in Cherry Hill NJ, and I might have gone to school with her children.) “Harnessing Magic” will take place at the Hyatt at the Bellevue Hotel in Philadelphia and will feature a cocktail reception, dinner and dancing, and silent and live auctions.
A few of the committee members who gathered to
Jacque Gallagher, event co-chair Sallie Dixon and Vicki McCue, Jean Ladenheim, Andee Shapiro, Kathy Grentzenberg, and Terry Martino.

Thorncroft’s mission is to help build the physical, emotional and mental well-being of all people, particularly those with special needs, through establishing an atmosphere of cooperation, respect and love in an equestrian environment. They are committed to a mainstreaming approach for teaching horseback riding and to promoting the development of new and independent therapeutic riding programs. Ticket Info Here.
