The Pin Oak Charity Horse Show is the oldest non-profit partner of Texas Children’s Hospital. Since making the first donation in 1947 to begin the planning and building of the hospital, Pin Oak continues its legacy of giving today. Pin Oak has donated nearly $7 million to support the healing of sick children and is committed to supporting the growth of Texas Children’s.

The Pin Oak Charity Horse continued its 76-year legacy of giving with the presentation of a $162,000 check to Texas Children’s Hospital November, 2022 at Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus in Houston, TX. 

A multi-week horse show held annually in March and April, the Pin Oak Charity Horse Show has the distinction of becoming the first donor to Texas Children’s Hospital in 1947, providing the seed money to begin planning and building the world’s first pediatric hospital.

In the decades since then, the Pin Oak Charity Horse Show has contributed nearly $7 million to the hospital, in addition to making gifts to the Ronald McDonald House Family Rooms and the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Alliance.

2022’s check presentation to Texas Children’s Hospital was made possible thanks to generous sponsorship support of the 2022 Pin Oak Charity Horse Show.

This USEF Heritage designated horse show is one of the oldest in the country, with the show’s initial donation used to build Texas Children’s Hospital in the 1940s. Their motto then and now is, ‘Let no child be left behind!’ We are incredibly proud of the commitment of the Pin Oak equestrian community to help sick children. 

The funds raised in 2022 complete Pin Oak’s $500,000 commitment to the Texas Children’s Hospital’s Legacy Tower 12th-floor Pin Oak Patient Family Playroom in the intensive care unit and allow Pin Oak to begin a new commitment to Texas Children’s breathing and exercise labs.

The labs are dedicated to providing the highest level of cardiovascular care to Texas Children’s patients, offering comprehensive exercise testing to patients who have, or who are suspected to have, cardiovascular, pulmonary, metabolic or other forms of congenital or acquired pediatric disease to predict how their heart and lungs respond to exercise or other physical activities.

MORE ABOUT OUR IMPACT

Texas Children’s breathing and exercise labs are dedicated to providing the highest level of
cardiovascular care to their patients. They offer comprehensive exercise testing to patients who have, or
who are suspected to have cardiovascular, pulmonary, metabolic, or other forms of congenital or
acquired pediatric disease to predict how their heart and lungs respond to exercise or other physical
activities. The tests—such as running on a treadmill with an electrocardiogram and face mask applied—
allow our clinical team to study the adequacy of blood supply to the cardiac muscle (at rest as well as during
induced stress) and informs them of abnormal waveforms or beats or abnormal oxygen consumption. Pin Oak Charity Horse Show is proud to partner with Texas Children’s on their new exercise lab.

PAST COMMITMENTS

Pin Oak recently completed a new $500,000 commitment to the Legacy Tower’s 12th-floor Patient Family Playroom in the ICU unit. This playroom offers patients a place to spend time with their families outside of their hospital room, even while in critical condition.

In 2014, Pin Oak made a commitment to the new state-of-the-art Sports Medicine Center at the West Campus of Texas Children’s. Pin Oak’s total giving to this new hospital was $1.25 million dollars and the commitment was completed in 2018.

At West Campus, Pin Oak’s giving has included:

  • $300,000       Oncology and Hematology
  • $400,000       Child Life Services
  • $550,000       Sports Medicine Center Fellow

Texas Children’s Hospital’s third campus is in The Woodlands, Texas, and Pin Oak once again was at the forefront of giving and made an initial pledge of $100,000 in 2014. The new facility opened in 2017.

When you support Pin Oak, you join our legacy of giving to make an incredible difference for children!
