SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) -

A group is getting ready to saddle up for an event to raise money for Camp Osborn.

The Ridge Riders Trail Club is hosting the benefit at the Boy Scout camp this Saturday. All of the money raised will go to fix the roof on the stables after it was damaged in the storms last year. 

"The barn area, as well as everything else at Camp Osborn, was totally destroyed last January in the storms, and they are just now recovering. This is the first ride we have been able to have out there," said Morgan Burnette, Director of Guest and Public Relations at Chehaw Park, and a club member, 

The event is this Saturday at 10 a.m. There will be rides for all different skill and age levels.

You can still come out even if riding isn't for you. There will be auctions, a chicken dinner and live music starting at 4 p.m. 

There is a $20 entry that includes dinner.
