Knights bingo benefits Kids & Horses program

Kids & Horses program volunteers Mike Catherwood and Kim Burke lead horses for riders Breidon Minor, left, and Matthew Ingbar in 2013.

The Knights of Columbus Bingo Night on Friday is designated to the Kids & Horses program in Carson Valley.

The Kids & Horses Therapeutic Riding Center is a bridge leading to a life of freedom and self-fulfillment for children and adults with physical and/or emotional disabilities.

Founded in April 1999, this program offers horsemanship as a means of therapy that improves strength, balance, coordination and self-esteem. More than a riding program, Kids & Horses is a philosophy that is based on the concept that every human being, regardless of their disabilities, can benefit from an equine relationship.

The Knights of Columbus hosts Bingo Nights on the second and fourth Fridays of each month at the Saint Gall Pastoral Center located at 1343 Centerville Lane, Gardnerville. These events, open to everyone over the age of 21, provide funds to support various community projects and other public needs.

Doors open at 6 p.m. and play starts at 7 p.m. Food and drinks are available and jackpots range from $50 to $1,199.
