The NorthWest Therapeutic Riding Center hosted its 13th annual golf tournament on July 15 at the North Bellingham Golf Course, raising approximately $6,000 for the charity. The sun made a rare appearance for the 58 golfers who participated in the scramble-type tournament.
Phil Simmons of Coast Lumber organized and sponsored the event, as he does every year, and many local businesses, as well as the Bellingham Police Department, helped sponsor the event.
The NorthWest Therapeutic Riding Center has provided horseback riding lessons to more than 800 people with disabilities in Whatcom County since opening 19 years ago. For more information, call (360) 966-2124 or visit www.nwtrc.org.
