Humanitarians Challenge of Champions Bigger and Better in 2008



"Dr. Wayne" T. Moses, Bonnie Phillips and Louis J. Labadini (Chairmen) proudly announce that the Humanitarian Society’s Challenge of Champions World Class Charity Horse Show will be bigger and better than ever. The Show will take place November 13, 14 & 15, 2008 at the Stadium Jumping Equestrian Center in Wellington, Florida. The show is open free to the public. Emily Lilly (Community Resources and Affairs Specialist) of Boca Raton, Florida, and Lyn Casella (Vice President of Farm Credit of South Florida) in Royal Palm Beach, Florida, have joined "Dr. Wayne," Bonnie and Lou and will be the "head honchos" of this year’s show. Emily & Lyn will bring new excitement to The Challenge of Champions, and The Avenue of Shops will be extended to make it possible for you to ‘shop until you drop.’ The well known Ray Cloninger will again be the manager for the eighth year, and as Dr. Wayne says, "it couldn’t be in better hands."

There will be classes for American Saddlebreds, Morgans, Friesians, Hackneys, Carriage Classes, and more.

Friday night will feature an exhibitors party with all the trimmings and music. The Chinese Auction will be filled with items to win for holiday giving. The ever popular ‘when the pigs fly’ will also be making a return in 2008.

Class sponsors and underwriters are welcome. All major credit cards are accepted. Contact The Humanitarian Society, Inc. at (561) 362-8530 for further information, or you can contact Ray Cloninger (Manager) at (704) 458-1611.
