Celebrate Sunrise raises over $50,000

On June 26, Sunrise Therapeutic Riding and Learning Centre hosted its Celebrate Sunrise event and raised over $50,000.

The special guest was Dr. Roberta Bondar, Canada’s first female astronaut, who was introduced by Sunrise honorary board member Tommy Hunter.    

Bondar’s presentation was inspiring, fascinating and amusing, officials say, as she took time to also answer questions about space that had been submitted by three Sunrise riders, as part of a pre-event “Ask an Astronaut” contest.

Food was prepared by chefs Moe Vidotto (of Savour the Season) and Steve Chaves (of Malasada World).
