Time-honored pin oak charity horse show contributes $200,000 in 2014 to Texas Children’s Hospital, Ronald McDonald House Family Rooms at Texas Children’s

Hosptal and Candlelighter’s Childhood Cancer Family Alliance HOUSTON, Texas

- The Pin Oak Charity Horse Show, which is gearing up for a series of 70th


social and competitive events between now and March 2015, recently presented three dona- tions totaling $200,000 to its designated charity beneficiaries through proceeds generated from the 2014 horse show and related events: Texas Children’s Hospital received $150,000; Ronald McDonald

House Family Rooms at Texas Children’s Hospital received $35,000; and Candlelighter’s Childhood Cancer Family Al- liance received $15,000. Celebrations and

check presentations with char- ity representatives, Pin Oak board members, volunteers, and sponsors were held on July 23 as part of the Candlelighters Summer Surprises event in the Texas Children’s Cancer Cen- ter, on August 27 at the Ronald

McDonald House Houston, and on Sept. 10 at Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus in Katy. The gift to Texas

Children’s Hospital enables Pin Oak to complete its commit- ment of $400,000 to Child Life at the West Campus. The 2014 Pin Oak donation to Texas Chil- dren’s Hospital also initiates Pin Oak’s new commitment of $550,000 that will be distrib- uted over 6 years to establish a Sports Medicine Fellowship

and $100,000 of seed money for the planned new campus in The Woodlands. Pin Oak’s donation to Ronald McDon- ald House Houston is for the Family Rooms inside of Texas Children’s Hospital that pro- vide a respite to families with critically ill children who are experiencing long hospital stays. For Candlelighters, the gift from Pin Oak funds three months of support for the Parking Program for families whose child is undergoing cancer treatment at the Texas Children’s Cancer Center. Established in 1945

in Houston, The Pin Oak Char- ity Horse Show is one of the oldest and most prestigious charity horse shows in the nation. Pin Oak is a two-week annual event that attracts 1,200 majestic horses and 1,000 exhibitors from around the country. Pin Oak is an award winning horse show and was the first horse show to re- ceive the coveted United States Equestrian Federation’s Heri- tage Competition designation. Currently, Pin Oak is part of the United States Hunter Jumper exhibit in the Kentucky Horse Park, A Sporting Tradition: Iconic Horse Show off the US. The primary philan-

thropic goal of The Pin Oak Charity Horse Show each year is to contribute a six-figure donation to its designated charities to support the healing of sick children. The horse

show has raised more than $6 million for children’s charities since its inception. In 1947, The Pin Oak Charity Horse Show provided the first donation toward the building of what is now the world renowned Texas Children’s Hospital. “It is an honor and

privilege to support these wonderful charities and it is admirable for the equestrian community to come together so willingly to make such an impactful gift. It is a testament to Pin Oak’s legacy of giving and its continued tradition of excellence,” said Mary Jones, board member and Charity Liaison for Pin Oak. The 69th

Pin Oak

Charity Horse Show yielded a donation of $200,000 for the second consecutive year for the children’s charities it supports. The horse show was held during the last two weeks of March 2014 at The Great Southwest Equestrian Center in Katy and was presented by title sponsors Haras Dos Cavaleiros and Irish Day Farm. “Our sponsors, ex-

hibitors, and volunteers are truly the hearts and souls of The Pin Oak Charity Horse Show. Our Pin Oak supporters openly demonstrate their love and respect for horses and chil- dren with the generous gifts of their time, talent and treasure,” said Lynn Walsh, president of The Pin Oak Charity Horse
