2015 Hampton Classic Huge Success Thanks to Supporters

For the ninth consecutive year, JustWorld International partnered with the Hampton Classic Horse Show, which took place August 23-30 in Bridgehampton, NY. JustWorld International and the Hampton Classic Horse Show have enjoyed a successful partnership promoting JustWorld’s dedication to helping children thrive in developing nations around the world.

Screen Shot 2015-09-08 at 5.42.02 PMThis year, the Hampton Classic Horse Show featured several JustWorld fundraising and awareness events, including the popular Horseless Horse Show and Silent Auction during the Exhibitor’s party.  Ambassador Kelly McInerney sang a beautiful rendition of the national anthem to start off the Horseless Horse Show. The JustWorld International Horseless Horse Show, ran by JustWorld Ambassadors, invited children of all ages to compete on foot in a variety of different classes. With over 50 entered, ribbons were presented in all divisions.

The fundraising efforts didn’t stop there, as the JustWorld Children’s Jumper Class brought fresh, up-and-coming stars to the show ring and was so generously sponsored by Carolynn Rockafellow and Olivia Lopez-Balboa. Ellyn Fritz and Rosalie Biefron graciously won first place and proudly accepted their ribbons and JustWorld prizes.

JustWorld International enjoyed a successful week of fundraising, thanks to the support they received from the  Hampton Classic Horse Show and all of the JustWorld volunteers for helping raise funds and awareness for JustWorld partner projects around the world. JustWorld looks forward to making next year another success!

We couldn’t have done it without you.
