Pin Oak enjoys being so much more than just a horse show because we engage with our charities throughout the year.  One of the outreach endeavors with both Ronald McDonald House Houston and Texas Children’s Cancer Center is our annual ArtReach.

Beautiful equestrian-themed art pieces are created by the Pin Oak volunteers and children undergoing medical treatment that find their way into the Pin Oak Charity Horse.  At Ronald McDonald House Houston, Chris Tresten has led the way for many colorful creations that become the official Pin Oak Charity Horse Show T-shirt annually. 

ArtReach 2014 at the Texas Children’s Cancer Center

With the children in the Texas Children’s Cancer Center, volunteers created a beautiful mosaic style art piece that is part of our Spectacular Silent Auction.

The event, led by the Young Professionals of Pin Oak (formerly known as the Young Pin Oak Club), made for a colorful and creative day.  All participating kids unleashed their creative forces and had a great time. This year’s project has special meaning for the Pin Oak family, as the children created an art piece, like a mosaic, from one of Shawn McMillen’s Pin Oak photographs.

The one-of-a-kind art piece created by these brave children on their cancer journey was done in memory of Shawn who lost his battle with cancer in November 2013. This beautiful creation was a silent auction item at Pin Oak 2014 as part of our fundraising efforts to benefit our charities. 

Thanks to all the brave kids who participated, and special thanks to Carol Herron of Texas Children’s Arts in Medicine Program for her support and care for this Shawn McMillen Memorial project from the heart of Pin Oak and the Young Professionals of Pin Oak.  Special thanks to Ribbon Recycling for donating the ribbons to share with the kids for the event!
