JustWorld congratulates Kevin Babington and Shorapur for winning the $250,000 Hampton Classic Grand Prix.
Bridgehampton, NY – September 13, 2014 – JustWorld International and the 39th Annual Hampton Classic Horse Show joined together once again and raised over $9,000 at the prestigious event held in Bridgehampton, NY. The Hampton Classic Horse Show took place August 24-31, 2014 and brought a competition live with action from top competitors. JustWorld was onsite with their mission in mind: to raise funds for children in impoverished communities around the globe. JustWorld helps to provide them with education, nutrition, health and hygiene, and leadership and cultural development programs.
Throughout the exciting week of showing, JustWorld International ran various fundraising events that ultimately yielded an incredible result.
The Horseless Horse Show, held on August 29, was a great hit during the Exhibitors’ Party with 50 participants gathering in the Grand Prix Field for the fun-filled event.
Unsurprisingly, the Silent Auction held in the VIP tent had a great turnout, which can be largely attributed to the many generous donations from Hampton Classic Vendors such as KEP Italia and Dressage Collection.
The Dressage Collection party was a blast, as it offered live music, champagne and shopping. The three-hour soiree was a crowd favorite and 10 percent of the proceeds went to JustWorld International, making it a fun shopping experience while still giving back.
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 generously sponsored by Carolynn Rockafellow and Olivia Lopez-Balboa.
Throughout the duration of the week, horse treat sales were racking up at the Information Booth and horses loved them, as they were homemade by The Acevedo Family & The Beaumont Family. With all proceeds going to JustWorld International, the horses were not the only ones smiling over the handmade delights.
JustWorld International enjoyed a successful week of fundraising, thanks to the support they received from the 39th Annual Hampton Classic Horse Show. JustWorld looks forward to making next year another success!
