The Humanitarian Society's Challenge of Champions World Class Charity Horse Show once again, and for the 6th year, will entertain
South Florida. The Challenge of Champions has become the most popular rated show in South Florida. The Palm Beach Polo Equestrian Center in Wellington, Florida will be the host on November 9, 10 & 11, 2006. The Challenge of Champions has grown continuously each year and attracts skilled equestrians from all over the country.


The chairmen are Dr. Wayne T. Moses, Bonnie Peck-Phillips and Louis J. Labadini. They welcome back Ray Cloninger, from North Carolina, as their manager for the fifth year.


The organizational committee that met recently in Lake Worth, Florida has planned an interesting and exciting show. There are excellent box seats and concessions for the public's enjoyment. There will be dog shows, exhibitors’ parties, “river of chocolate” fountains, an Avenue of Shops and more. Admission is free for the public to witness outstanding riders from all pathways of life. There will be morning and evening sessions. JNROTC will present colors for the opening each evening, and Mary Jane Curtis will be the soloist. Spectators will enjoy lively horse show music that will encourage the beautiful American Saddlebreds and Morgans to step out in regal fashion.


Proceeds will benefit The Florence Fuller Child Development Center in Boca Raton, Florida. The Humanitarians have pledged $50,000.00 for this Child Development Center. They will also continue to assist other at-risk children and families in need. If anyone wishes to send in donations the Humanitarians will be most appreciative as Hurricane Wilma devastated so many areas. With hurricane destruction forcing cancellation of the 2005 horse show, The Humanitarians’ coffers need to be built up again so they can continue their good deeds as they have done for 18 years. For information call The Humanitarians at (561) 362-8530.
