Pin Oak Charity Horse Show celebrated its 75th anniversary at the Great Southwest Equestrian Center. The three-week event benefiting Texas Children’s Hospital welcomed competitors and horses from across the country, participating in Olympic-level show jumping, world champion competitions and ringside galas to boot.
Honorary chairs Patty Roberts and Lynn Walsh joined fellow host committee members and volunteers who helped produce a jam-packed event roster.
The auction horse featured at the gala went for $80,000, helping contribute toward the grand total of more than $789,000 being raised for Pin Oak.

Excitement ensued as guests and donors joined in support of Camp For All for the organization’s annual fundraiser. Although held virtually this year, donors came together from the comfort of their own homes through live bidding, raffles and speeches aplenty.
Co-chairs Brooke and Jason Bernhardt and Dawn and Brett Berly joined underwriting chair Tom Behanick and Camp For All President and CEO Pat Sorrells as they honored Joshua and Cheryl Samuels for their commitment to and passion for the organization throughout the years.
Raising $800,000, the evening topped off with testimonies told by former Camp For All attendees.
