Birthday Gifts

April 19, 2010

This spring, Cheff was treated to an amazing birthday surprise! We were the recipient of someone else's birthday gifts! On purpose even! While planning a joint mother-daughter birthday party for Kim Johnson and Mary Javor, the family got together and decided that these two lovely ladies had reached a point in their lives where they didn't really need any more material items. Instead, inspired by their family's lifelong passion for horses, it was determined that the best gift would be the knowledge that they had a part in making horseback riding a possibility for others. By requesting on the invitations that in lu of gifts, donations be made to the Cheff Center, this amazing group was able to spread awareness, raise over $1,000, and collect several horsey items for Cheff. Thank you Kristina Minch, Kim Johnson, Mary Javor, and all their party guests for such an unexpected surprise!

What People Are Saying

The Cheff Center is great! Since our twins started riding, they both got their balance enough to be able to ride a bike at home! Also their self esteem and confidence in themselves has increased too. Thanks Cheff Center! We love you!
