Northern Virginia Therapeutic Riding Program (NVTRP) Board Member and former Fox 5 News anchor Will Thomas hosted Great Gatsby: Life's a Picnic on a gorgeous afternoon, Saturday, April 28, at Elway Hall, the Warrenton, Virginia home of Will Thomas and Barry Dixon.

The event successfully raised nearly $130,000 with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting NVTRP, primarily used to support "Build to Thrive," NVTRP's capital campaign to construct a new indoor riding arena and 20-stall barn at O'Shaughnessy Farm, its 17-acre farm in Clifton, Virginia.

Approximately 200 guests dressed in Great Gatsby-era attire and enjoyed live jazz, catered lunches provided in individual picnic baskets, a demonstration by the Warrenton Hunt, vintage cars, and surprise fly-by from a World War II-era plane.

Leading sponsors included Boeing, TTR Sotheby's International Realty, Catherine Brentzel, Chantilly Air and Saint Germain Catering.

Founded in 1980, NVTRP exists to help each individual realize their highest potential by providing equine-assisted activities to people with disabilities, youth-at-risk, recovering military personnel, and others in need, in an inclusive, community setting.
