Photo Gallery | Photos capture Project R.I.D.E. spaghetti feed and carnival Sept 20!

Project R.I.D.E. celebrated its 35th year with a spaghetti feed and carnival this past Saturday, Sept. 20.

For attendees, it was a great opportunity to support Project R.I.D.E. while enjoying live entertainment, demonstrations, carnival games and prizes, as well as a silent auction and raffle. There were even kitties and cats to adopt from KittyWits of Hollywood Park.

This event was also a great opportunity to acknowledge its volunteers, whose hard work is so appreciated.

Disabled Persons Services Executive Director Tina Calanchini proudly announced the addition of a new stage, which was dedicated to the late Carey Ann Reza, whose dream it was to have this stage for Project R.I.D.E.  Reza's son, John-Michael Reza was there to accept the plack from Calanchini on behalf of his mother. 

Project R.I.D.E. Inc., a nonprofit institution, provides therapeutic recreational horseback riding instruction to over 500 children and adults with special needs. Through the dedication and support of the Elk Grove Unified School District and the Elk Grove and Sacramento communities, Project R.I.D.E. has grown from a program that began in 1979 serving 30 students at Jessie Baker School to serving over 500 students from the greater metropolitan area.
