Wolf Creek's Carousel Cake Sales Benefit
"Carousel Wishes and Valentine Kisses" Campaign

The sweetest dessert you'll treat yourself to this month comes with a tasty reward for local equestrian therapy program Carousel Ranch.

"In the tradition of giving to the ones we love on Valentine's Day, Wolf Creek's pastry chef, Meghan Launier, has created a 'Carousel Cake,' to be sold from January 18 to February 13," explains Carousel Ranch Executive Director Denise Tomey. "We're so grateful to Wolf Creek for donating $5 for each slice purchased to the Ranch. Every penny will go directly towards funding therapy on horseback for special-needs SCV children."

Buy your Carousel treat by the slice or by the cake. It's a s'mores-inspired, handcrafted confection that our taste-testers couldn't get enough of. "It's absolutely delicious!," says Tomey, who also hopes readers will join Carousel Ranch supporters at Wolf Creek on Wednesday, February 3, when a percentage of lunch, dinner and to-go purchases will be donated to the Ranch. "Everyone needs to tell their server that they are there for Carousel Ranch in order for our children to benefit from your order," says the nonprofit director. Call Wolf Creek for more information about this very special dessert! 263-9653

The Carousel Ranch Story
The children of Carousel Ranch are sure to melt your heart. They are kindred souls with special-need challenges that most of us will never comprehend. But their spirit is always strong as is their determination to achieve the impossible. To witness a child's transformation touches your heart in unimaginable ways. So what makes Carousel Ranch such a magical place? Therapy lessons are disguised as fun in an atmosphere where every child can succeed. The equestrian therapy provided creates a unique and individualized program to meet each child's specific needs and goals. Technically, the movement of the horse causes an inherent response from the child, relaxing muscles that are tight; increasing tone in muscles that are weak, building balance, coordination and control; which in turn enables children to use their hands and arms, sit, stand and walk. Emotionally, there is a powerful horse-to-human bond that makes the impossible possible.

Each year many children with special needs wait for the opportunity to improve their health and experience life at Carousel Ranch. The Ranch is growing to serve more children and you can help them reach this goal by supporting their annual "Carousel Wishes & Valentine Kisses" campaign. Together, we can make a difference - one very special child at a time. For more information, visit
