Auction, dinner aids River Valley Riders

A Nov. 2 benefit for the River Valley Riders, a nonprofit therapeutic horseback-riding program, will feature an auction, live music and dinner.

The 10th annual Round-Up Dinner will raise funds for the organization, which offers horse-related activities for adults and children with special needs. The event includes a performance by Minneapolis-based blues saxophonist and pianist Tommy Burnevik and live and silent auctions.

The River Valley Riders provide “horse-related activities, including therapeutic riding and carriage driving, to children and adults by addressing needs in the areas of physical, sensory, neurological and mental health.”

The benefit begins at 5 p.m. at the Prestwick Golf Club, 9555 Wedgewood Drive in Woodbury. Tickets are $60 and can be purchased on the Riders’ website,
