Marley’s Misson Blue Ribbon Gala
6TH ANNUAL BLUE RIBBON GALA
On Saturday, February 13th Marley’s Mission held its annual Blue Ribbon Gala at The Hilton is Scranton, PA. This black tie event featured entertainment by Daddy-O and the Sax Maniacs with special guest, Olivia Kay. The Blue Ribbon Gala serves as the charity’s major fundraiser for the year.
Marley’s Mission provides free therapy and treatment using horses at its Newton Twp. ranch to help children recover from abuse and other traumatic incidents.
The event sold out for its sixth straight year, generating much needed funds, said mission founder April Kemp.
Ms. Kemp started the organization after she witnessed how a horse helped a young girl who suffered a horrific attack. Conventional therapies had been unsuccessful before the animal was introduced into her treatment. Then she started to heal.
Now the organization will help any child, free, who has suffered trauma.
“If you can get to the mission, we’ll see you,” Ms. Kemp said.
Toyota of Scranton was honored to be a Triple Crown Sponsor for this event.
