DEFIANCE HARLEY-DAVIDSON TO HOST SCOTT HELMER CONCERT SUPPORTING VICTORY RIDING ACADEMY ON AUGUST 10
Nebraska Equine Therapy Non-Profit to Raise Money and Awareness for Programs That Enrich Lives of Active Duty Military, Veterans, First Responders and Special Needs Children and Adults.
Omaha, Neb. - Scott Helmer is a singer, songwriter, musician, talk radio host and Guinness World Records holder for "Most Live Music Performances in 24 Hours (multiple cities)." Since 2012 his special fundraising concerts have helped raise more than $2 Million for good causes across America ranging from military veterans and their families, equine-assisted therapy, suicide prevention, first responders, pet and animal rescues, food banks, historic places, special needs children and adults, and more.
On Saturday, August 10, 2019 the entertainer’s “One-Man Rock & Country Music Show” will make a stop at the Defiance Harley-Davidson in Omaha, NE to help support Victory Riding Academy as part of his year long charity concert tour aimed at helping equine-assisted activity and therapy organizations across America raise money and awareness for their important work.
Victory Riding Academy (VRA) is a 501(c)(3) not-profit, community-based organization located in South Omaha and funded 100% by donations and grants; no one at VRA receives a salary or any compensation.
VRA utilizes the healing power of horses to enrich the lives of active duty Military, Veterans, Police, Fire, First Responders and the families by providing horseback riding opportunities and horsemanship activities. The organization also provides therapeutic riding to children and adults with physical, behavioral, cognitive and emotional needs. Learn more at their website.
Victory Riding Academy plans to construct a much needed indoor Equine Therapeutic Riding Center that will allow for year round therapy sessions and dramatically increase the number of sessions VRA is able to offer.
“Currently we only have the capacity to offer up to eight equine therapy sessions per week, and are only able to offer these sessions for up to four months out of the year, from Spring to Fall, due to Nebraska’s unpredictable weather,” says Tony Barnes, Co-Founder and Executive Director. Adding, “100% of the proceeds from this event will go to help us construct our new center.”
