The Humanitarians welcome new "Head Honchos" for the Humanitarian Society’s Challenge of Champions World Class Charity Horse Show for 2008. Emily Lilly (Community Resources and Affairs Specialist of The City of Boca Raton) and Lyn Cacella (Vice President of Farm Credit of South Florida) have joined forces with Dr. Wayne T. Moses, Bonnie Phillips and Louis J. Labadini who are chairmen of the Challenge of Champions. November 13-15, the Challenge of Champions expects a record breaking crowd at their 10th annual horse show - the greatest show in South Florida - a rated show.

Exhibitors will come from all over the country with their beautiful American Saddlebreds, Morgans, Friesians and more to entertain the spectators in South Florida. Plans for an outstanding show have all ready been organized which will include a large Avenue of Shops (Vendors are welcome), Dog Shows, box seats, When the Pigs Fly 50/50, Concerts, Parties, and the list is endless that these two "Head Honchos" have in the making.

"Dr. Wayne", Bonnie and Lou are very excited knowing that Emily and Lyn come from years of experience in organizing huge and successful fundraisers. The show will be at the beautiful newly renovated Palm Beach Polo Equestrian Club (Stadium Jumping, Inc.,) in Wellington, Florida where you can expect the best in exhibiting your beautiful horses.
