$50,000 FOREVER FARNAM PRIZE AWARDED
Horse Charity and Horse Owner Share Sweepstakes Win
Phoenix, Arizona – February 5, 2013 – The “Forever Farnam” Sweepstakes has made Ellen Lauterbach very happy and stands to make a lot of horses and children happy, too. The Sweepstakes, which ran this summer on Facebook, www.FarnamHorse.com and in stores where Farnam products are sold, awarded $25,000 to one lucky person and another $25,000 to the horse charity of her choice.
Lauterbach proudly designated Sunshine Acres as her co-beneficiary. Specifically, the money is earmarked for the Two Hearts Horsemanship program at Sunshine Acres. The program gives children facing social and developmental challenges the opportunity to form relationships with horses. Some of the horses have been rescued from severe neglect and abuse and are cared for by the children, establishing a bond of trust and respect. The friendships that develop benefit both the horses and the children by fostering empathy, confidence, self-control, and responsibility.
“My great niece is developmentally delayed,” says Lauterbach. “My sister and I are always looking for ways to help her. During our search, we discovered many wonderful programs that promote healing relationships between children and horses. The bond between the two can do so much. I am so happy to be able to designate such a worthwhile charity to receive this generous donation.”
As for her own share of the Forever Farnam Sweepstakes money, Lauterbach says “My head is spinning trying to decide how to spend this fantastic prize.”
