Rocky Creek Ranch • Statesville, NC

Join us for a special Autumn evening! Graze on farm-to-table edibles and taste NC-local libations, curated by Lake Norman Catering, owned and operated by Military Veteran Sous Chef Alexander & Executive Chef Nate.

Enjoy music by Paul Atkinson.

Participate in an interactive Scavenger Hunt that will guide you through our farm property, introduce you to some of our animal “therapists” and learn about those we work with. Check out unique silent auction items and experiences in support of our mission.

All funds raised will benefit Haven’s Foundation and Equuvation’s combined efforts to provide therapeutic programs designed specifically for youth and teens with special needs, chronic illness or who have experienced trauma.


There are only 80 tickets available for this event.
$125 per ticket. Ages 17 and above.

This year, we are thrilled to be partnering with Haven’s Foundation,
a 501c3 nonprofit organization who provides comfort and support to families who are struggling to cope with the physical and emotional trauma associated with childhood illness or injury: and to lend financial support to the individuals and institutions dedicated to caring for these children in their time of need.
