Twenty percent of all proceeds from the event will benefit Westonwood Ranch, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation located in the heart of Walton County that was established in 2017. Founded by local Lindy Wood, Westonwood Ranch offers a unique learning curriculum aimed to improve the life skills and pre-vocational skills of youth and young adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and related developmental disabilities.
Those enrolled in Westonwood’s program have the opportunity to engage in a vast variety of skill sets and activities, such as ranch maintenance, therapeutic equine activities, animal feeding and care, and aquaponic greenhouse operations. The proceeds raised will directly fund the variety of programs, maintain the ranch grounds, and enable Westonwood Ranch to expand and teach more youth and young adults affected by ASD and related developmental disabilities in the community.
