Muskegon – Back by popular demand, Pioneer Resources presents the 2nd annual “Hats and Horses” fundraiser on Saturday, May 4, 2019. Attendees are encouraged to get tickets early and dress in derby attire/hats for this Kentucky Derby-themed party held at the Frauenthal Ballroom in downtown Muskegon. The event is from 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm and will feature the Kentucky Derby Race live on extra-large screens. Additional activities include a silent and live auction, betting games, cash bar, and hors-d’oeuvres throughout the evening.
This year’s proceeds will be used to help fund Day Camp at Pioneer Trails. Day Camp is a program dedicated to serving children and young adults, ages 6 to 26, with physical disabilities, cognitive impairments, and autism. Campers enjoy games, arts and crafts, nature education, swimming, canoeing, and fishing. Day Camp includes care provided by uniquely trained staff and transportation from Muskegon. Due to funding changes, nearly a third of the funding necessary to run Day Camp needs to come from external sources.
Pioneer Resources began as an unincorporated association of parents and educators in the late 1940s, operating as Pioneer School and providing special education and therapy. 63 years later the agency offers a diverse array of individualized supports and services for persons with disabilities as well as seniors.
