8th Annual Bobbyfest Charity Music Festival

Festival Details - "8th Annual Bobbyfest Charity Music Festival"...

TICKETS:  www.bobbyfest.com

Bobbyfest started out 8 years ago as a backyard music festival hosted by Bobby & Lisa Rawls. In its third year, Bobby decided to leverage the event to raise money for charity. For the past 4 years, Bobbyfest has served a charity event honoring Amy's Wish With Wings - an equine therapy center for children with special needs. Attendees will enjoy live music, local vendors, auctions, & much more!

Amy's Wish With Wings was founded in 2011 by Doreen Bruton (pictured above on the left). Amy Stefanko (pictured above on the right) began therapeutic horseback riding with Doreen after suffering complications from Leukemia, which forced her to learn to speak and walk again. Amy's wish was to be able to ride independent of a lead line with side walkers. Under Doreen's care and instruction, Amy achieved her wish and continues to flourish today in the program held at Ride with Pride Horsemanship School in Southlake, Texas.

Amy's Wish With Wings' mission is to provide equine-assisted activities for children with special needs. This may include (but is not limited to): children with autism, downs syndrome, brain injuries, cerebral palsy, victims of abuse, vision impaired, selective mutism, and many more. These children benefit from the movement of the horse to stimulate the rider's vestibular system as it responds to balance signals, voluntary movement, and speech. The horses provide an alternative therapy for children to build self esteem, learn sequential tasks, stay on tasks, promote empathy, and strengthen gross & fine motor skills.
