Cowgirls and cowboys giddyapped last week to the Hyatt Place Long Island/East End in Riverhead for the Black Tie and Boots Gala, a dress code chosen appropriately for the fundraiser's beneficiary -- the Timothy Hill Children's Ranch. Horsemanship is among the programs offered at the 70-acre Riverhead facility serving boys 10 to 21 who have been abused, neglected or are in crisis, some of whom attended the event.
