WARSAW — Indiana Business Opportunity Partners presented $4,277.61 to Magical Meadows recently after hosting its 7th annual Winter Wonderland Bazaar and Quarter Auction on Nov. 11. The local not-for-profit group, known as iBOP, has several events throughout the year to support local charities.
Magical Meadows was chosen to bring awareness to all they provide to the community.
Through the therapeutic riding program at The Magical Meadows, children, youth and adults with physical and/or developmental disabilities improve physical health, relax tight muscles, increase balance, build muscle strength, sharpen hand/eye coordination, improve social skills and gain a sense of control and self-confidence as the rider experiences a freedom never felt before. Children with disabilities aren’t the only people who benefit from program at Magical Meadows. Warriors Mount Up is specifically designed to help veterans overcome any difficulties they face in their day to day lives.

In addition to the donation to Magical Meadows, iBOP has chosen to partner with Combined Community Services for all of their Kosciusko County events with a donation of the raffle basket proceeds. Each iBOP member donates an item from their direct sales business to the raffle basket. Patrons brought food items to receive raffle tickets and/or purchased raffle basket tickets for the opportunity to win the basket valued at over $150. In addition to all the food that was collected iBOP was able to present CCS with a check for $301. CCS needs donations year-round to help those in our community that are a bit down on their luck.
