Planning is underway for “Sunset at the Stables,” expected to become one of the top annual social functions in the Town of Warwick. The festive but casual dinner and dancing party will be open to the entire adult community. The event will be held on Sat., Jun. 3 from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Winslow Therapeutic Riding Center’s indoor arena, located at 1433 Rte. 17A in Bellvale. Attire for the evening is casual chic with no heels recommended.
Leo R. Kaytes and Cindy Vander Plaat will co-chair the event, which will feature dinner catered by the Bellvale Market, dancing to the music of the CloudNYne Band, upscale auctions and tours of the Winslow facilities.
For the past five years Kaytes and Vander Plaat headed the highly successful June Tent Party at Mount Alverno Center. That event has been discontinued. However, most members of the Tent Party planning committee are helping organize the new volunteer driven event. Marge King Porter and Patricia Lurye Dempster will again chair auction activities.
As a gesture of support, Sue Ferro, Winslow executive director, announced that Winslow will not hold its “Denim and Diamonds” fundraiser this year and will concentrate its efforts on providing therapeutic horseback riding to its 1,000 children and adults with mental and physical disabilities.
The co-chairs said their goal for “Sunset at the Stables” is to provide “an enjoyable evening for the entire community while benefiting the wonderful work of Winslow Therapeutic Riding Center, a non-profit organization devoted to the special needs community of the Hudson Valley, and the Warwick Valley Rotary Club, a non-profit organization dedicated to creating a positive, lasting change to the community and beyond.” All of Rotary’s share will be donated back to local non-profit organizations and for student scholarships.
