GET BIDDING

The Calile Hotel is honoured to announce our 2022 philanthropic partnership to raise funding and awareness for Reason to Thrive. Reason to Thrive provides unique life skills and personal development programs to support at-risk children and women whose lives have been impacted by family and domestic violence. Through experiential equine-assisted learning (EAL) programs, the volunteer-led organisation helps participants rebuild, recover, and reconnect with themselves, and learn leadership, self-awareness, and social-emotional skills, through a safe and respectful relationship experience with horses.
