OPELIKA, AL (WTVM) -

It was a big day for folks in Opelika as the first annual Storybook Scramble unfolded. 

Storybook Farm took its mission to the golf course Wednesday. Fifteen teams competed and altogether raised close to $10,000.

The magical Storybook Farm in Opelika is a non-profit faith based organization that provides equine assisted activities for children experiencing challenges.

Storybook Scramble proceeds will stay in the community and be used to benefit children coping with disabilities, life-threatening illnesses, grief, and social challenges.

"We don't charge anything for our program for our families so this is our gift," said Dena Little, founder of Storybook Farm. "And we can only do that because of the support of great organizations like WTVM and wonderful locations like Grand National to be able to keep out cost at zero and provide service for over 800 children annually."

Because Storybook Farm provides all services and programs at no cost to the families, these funds are the vital link between those needing help and those that were willing to give of their time, talents and resources.

Overall, this great day out on the golf course has enabled one of Opelika's greatest groups to continue their mission of hope on horseback, offering children an outlet of hope and healing that they may not otherwise experience.
