The Pin Oak Charity Horse show will be making a six figure check presentation to Texas Children’s Hospital – West Campus to continue its commitment of $400,000 to underwrite the Second Floor Child Life Playroom. Additionally, Pin Oak will be making check presentations to Houston’s Ronald McDonald House Family Rooms to support the family rooms in Texas Children’s Hospital, and to Candlelighters to support their work with pediatric cancer patients and their families who are cared for by Texas Children’s Hospital Cancer Center.
The event will take place 11:30 am to 1:30 pm Thursday, August 2nd at Texas Children’s Hospital – West Campus I-10 and Barker Cypress, 18200 Katy Freeway Houston, TX 77094, in the 2nd Floor, Child Life Playroom named for The Pin Oak Charity Horse Show.
Pin Oak supporters and volunteers will work with children to create horse puppets and enjoy a horse-themed story-time in the 2nd floor Child Life Playroom named for The Pin Oak Charity Horse show. Horses inspire young and old alike and are a rich part of Houston’s history and we seek to bring that to life for children who need the world-class medical care of TCH. It is our hope to give them a chance to have fun, feel happy, and ease the worry of their medical situation with these fun activities. We look forward to all the smiling faces that are the newest members of the “Pin Oak Circle of Champions” and the blue ribbon horses these special children will create.
Pin Oak has a 68-year history of helping children and charities. The Pin Oak Charity Horse Show provided the seed money to build the first Texas Children’s Hospital and is committed to the building and growth of the second Texas Children’s Hospital – the new West Campus facility in Katy, Texas. The Pin Oak Charity Horse show is delighted to present these three organizations with funds that support their work to heal sick children through family-centered care. As a Leader in Giving, we hope to inspire the community through our contribution to champion these great organizations and raise awareness of their work and the beautiful, state-of-the-art West Campus facility for Texas Children’s Hospital.
