About PRANCE (Pegasus Riding Association Nurturing Challenged Equestrians)
The PRANCE riding school in Port Elgin was established in 1993 and provides an amazing service to people with physical, developmental, and emotional challenges through their interaction with horses.
 
They run two ten-week therapeutic riding programs each spring and fall for riders with disabilities from age 5 to 105!
 
The equine facilitated wellness (EFW) program involves groundwork learning experiences facilitated by a mental health professional and equine specialist.
The program has been shown to be effective for depression, anxiety, PTSD, and grief.
 
Like all organizations, they have not been able to hold fundraising events during the pandemic and need financial assistance to purchase a horse and provide equipment.

History of the Auction
Southampton Rotary Club has held an Annual Dinner and Auction every October since 2003, with a pause in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
 
The idea for the auction came from a club member, Ron Luciano, who in the early years also took on the role of Auctioneer. The event was originally held at Chippewa Golf and Country Club (Now known as Southampton Golf and Country Club), but in recent years it has become the premier Fall event at the Walker House.
 
During the COVID-enforced pause, the club organized a number of virtual events including an East Coast Kitchen Party, Jazz for the Light, a St Patrick's Day Event, and a series of Cooking Shows. Each event featured an online auction.
