We would like to invite you to join us for our annual “Open Your Heart Gala” at Hunkapi Farms on October 30, 2021. We pride ourselves on our ability to give life changing, experiential experiences to our clients, and the guests at this year’s gala should expect no less.
After a year off from in person galas, our farm is “chomping at the bit” to give you an experience you’ll never forget including a locally sourced, scrumptious farm to table dinner from a surprise local chef, cowboy games, interactions with our healing herd of animals, inspiring honoree speakers, and the “BEST BARN BOUJEE” outfit contest!
In the spirit of the evening, we will be raising money for the sustainability and continuation of Hunkapi Programs. The pandemic of 2020 made the healing value of the farm and the animals abundantly clear. Demand for services and volunteer opportunities skyrocketed as people opted to do things outside, had time to give back, and mental health was challenged in both youth and adults alike.
The Open Your Heart Gala is chaired by Diversified Partners Associate Broker Michelle Cheverie and LivGenerations Outreach Director Nicole Elliott Carlson. Our honoree is former Arizona Cardinals player, Michael Bankston.
All funds raised will go toward a wide array of services offered by the nonprofit including therapeutic riding, counseling, emotional regulation, somatic experience, addiction recovery and the newly launched Sit.Stay.Heal. program, which provides dogs a safe place to live while their owners experiencing homelessness transition from living on the streets to securing more permanent housing.
We hope you will join us on this magical evening celebrating Hunkapi Programs!
