Lay It Out Events proudly supports local nonprofits & community organizations

Every year, a portion of proceeds from First Interstate Bank Bend Summer Festival is donated to a few local nonprofits. In 2023, Cascade School of Music returns as one of this year’s beneficiaries!

For over 18 years, the Cascade School of Music’s Vision has been to build a Central Oregon culture that values lifelong engagement in music where all can actively participate. 

 With over 30 of Central Oregon’s best music educators and performers, our school strives to create a learning environment that is supportive, encouraging, inter-generational, and exciting. Learn more at

In addition, in 2023 a portion of our proceeds will be donated to Healing Reins Equine Assisted Services

Healing Reins is not a typical treatment setting, which is exactly why it works! Since 1999 we have offered equine assisted therapy with a unique team approach to healing and recovery. Professionally certified staff are assisted by 150+ weekly community volunteers who are specially trained to provide safe and effective rehabilitative services. Healing Reins serves 190 children, teens, and adults each week throughout the year, impacting the lives of more than 1,400 families annually. Our participants include children, teens, adults and families “ages 2 – 94” who are challenged with physical and cognitive disabilities, as well as emotional, behavioral and mental health needs.

Our primary activities are Adaptive Horsemanship, Physical Therapy using equine movement, and Equine Assisted Mental Health. We also provide free services to our community’s Veteran and First Responder population, provide Substance Use Disorder treatment services, and have recently initiated a Dementia program at our new location in Tumalo. We are a Premier Accredited Center and a member of the International Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH International).

We are in desperate need of volunteer support to execute our services at both our Bend and Tumalo facilities. No Time Commitment Required, No Horse Experience Necessary, All Ages Can Support! To learn more about our services and volunteer opportunities visit
