Dream Catchers at the Cori Sikich Therapeutic Riding Center is saddling up for its fourth annual “Cowboys Uncorked.”

The benefit, which is presented by Malvin, Riggins + Company PC, will be held on Sunday at the Williamsburg Winery and feature a rodeo theme.

In addition to a cowboy fare, country line dancing, a “quick draw” gunslinger competition, a hats and boots competition and a raffle, the event will also include the return of the popular local celebrity arrests.

Local public figures including Ike Carter, Patti DeBlass, Sally Derrig, Sal Fanelli, Robert Hill, Curt Iverson, Ellen and Bill Kelso, Carol and David Lands, Heather Lutz, Larry Molnar, Tim Newens, Sue Pearce, David Ricker,  Barbara Schuler, Anthony Scordo, Leighton “Miss Julia” Strader, The Pilates Center and “Mick Jagger” the therapy horse made this year’s “Most Wanted” list and are currently raising “bail” donations.

Last year’s event raised $23,000 for the center, which provides more than 100 therapeutic riding lessons and other horse related activities each week to local children and adults with special needs.

This event will take place from 5 to 8 p.m. and tickets are $50 per person.

Attire for the fundraiser is jeans and boots, and a recent press release for the organization advises that “heels and wingtips are outlawed.”
