WASHINGTON — A virtual auction will replace this year’s Boots & Britches BBQ, a popular annual fundraiser for Little Britches Therapeutic Riding.

The auction will take place from Monday, September 21, to Monday, October 5, at

All proceeds will benefit Little Britches, a local nonprofit that helps kids and adults with special needs discover their strengths though horseback riding.

The organization relies on grants, donations and fundraising events in order to keep rider fees affordable.

“Covid-19 restrictions forced us to cancel our Boots & Britches BBQ, so we’ve reimagined the event,” explained Little Britches President Janie Larson. “This virtual auction will help ensure that our program continues to serve the community.”

The auction will feature works by local artists, food and wine baskets, decorative tableware, gift cards and a range of items and services from area businesses.

Despite the pandemic, Little Britches is continuing its program at its Roxbury location this fall, following best practices to help keep all participants safe.
