From a press release:

Equinox Horse Foundation will hold a fundraiser on Dec. 5, 6:30-10 p.m.,  at the Wisteria Inn, 56 N. Main St.,  Weaverville. The theme will be centered around the novel  “Winters Tale” by Mark Helprin, which takes place in NYC during the Edwardian Era.  Winter’s Tale will be an event of fun, frolic and fantasia. Roasting chestnuts, actors, acrobats, singing, and a horse-drawn carriage are in store. The fundraiser will benefit Equinox Horse Foundation’s mission to provide therapeutic riding lessons to the disabled.

Tickets are $40.00 including a carriage ride with picture, movie (Winter’s Tale), hors d’oeuvres and libations.  Carriage rides will be available 5- 8 p.m. for $10.00/person and $5.00 for a picture. For tickets and information contact Mary Shanahan at (828) 708-9331.
