Tower FCU raises 130K to help special-needs people soldiers
LAUREL, Md. (9/22/11)--Tower FCU, based in Laurel, Md., helped raise more than $130,000 for Maryland Therapeutic Riding (MTR) at a benefit concert Sept. 10. MTR is a nonprofit organization that uses horses to help special needs children and adults, and retired and active-duty wounded soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. The Live on the Farm! concert featured two-time Grammy winner and environmental activist Kathy Mattea and local favorite The Hard Travelers. The event, held on MTR’s 26-acre farm in Crownsville, Md., featured rider demonstrations, refreshments and live and silent auctions. The charity serves over 500 clients, according to MTR’s Development Director Anne Joyner. The annual concert is MTR’s primary fundraiser, and money raised benefits programs such as Horses for Heroes, a therapeutic riding program specially designed for retired and wounded soldiers. “The success of this fundraiser shows how much the community cares about our soldiers returning from the battlefield,” says Martin Breland, Tower president/CEO. “Therapeutic riding is a unique program that provides support and rehabilitative services for our wounded warriors and we are proud to sponsor this event.” Since 1997, Tower has donated more than $500,000 to local and national charities, Breland said.
