ANDOVER — 450 guests attended the Ironstone Farm’s 21st annual Spirit of Giving gala, which was held at the Andover Country Club. The event honored Linda and Larry Ardito, who “exemplify the spirit of giving through several decades of involvement in the Merrimack Valley community and Ironstone Farms.” The evening raised more than $300,000. NBC 10 Boston/NECN meteorologist Matt Noyes served as the auction emcee.
Through horse therapy, Ironstone Farm helps children and adults with disabilities, veterans and first responders with PTSD, cancer patients, individuals in recovery, and at-risk youth.
