Hosted by Belle Herbe Farm in Wellington, Florida

Wellington, Florida – The nonprofit JustWorld International is bringing Hollywood to Wellington, Florida
for their Fifteenth Annual JustWorld Gala on Friday, January 12, 2018 to raise funds to support
education and nutrition programs for children living in impoverished communities around the world.

Each year, JustWorld International hosts their Gala to celebrate and applaud the positive change the
organization and its supporters are making in the lives of children who need it most. The JustWorld
Gala attracts some of the equestrian industry’s top riders, trainers, owners and supporters, as well as
important members of the community.

This year’s Gala will commemorate fifteen incredible years of making strides for change to create a
more just world. Through the equestrian community, members of JustWorld International work
together to break the cycle of poverty and help children in need around the world become positive
leaders in their communities. Hundreds of people from more than 40 different countries have joined
the JustWorld community with the intention of improving children’s lives. Currently, JustWorld
International supports local NGO’s in three countries: Cambodia, Guatemala, and Honduras. In total,
JustWorld is supporting more than 6,500 children this year alone, focusing on education, nutrition,
and leadership and cultural development programs.

This year, the theme of the Gala will be a night of “Hollywood Glamour.” JustWorld promises to bring
spectacular entertainment to the event, with a few surprises up their sleeves. Guests are welcome to
come dressed as their celebrity-selves to reflect the festive theme.

The evening will host a series of fundraising events that will directly benefit JustWorld’s supported
NGO’s, including a silent auction and live auction. The Longines Global Champions Tour and Global
Champions League have donated a VIP table for four guests in the exclusive hospitality lounge at
their highly anticipated event in Miami Beach from April 5-7, 2018. Other live auction items include an
Exclusive Premier Golf Membership at Wellington National Golf Club, a wonderful Bolay catered
event for up to fifty guests, a Palm Beach Master Series VIP package, a Hollywood Package which
includes four VIP tickets to The Late Show with James Corden, and much more! Exciting silent
auction items include beautiful Conquest Jumping watches from Longines, Disney park hopper
tickets, and a VIP Bruins Package. These auction items will be sure to amaze the crowd.

JustWorld is delighted to announce exciting partnerships this year. Long time supporter Voltaire
Design is joining JustWorld as Gala Sponsor. Voltaire Design specializes in upscale custom saddles
which are made in France with the finest French leathers. Continuing their ongoing support,
Horseware Ireland will be coming back as Sponsor of the fun photo booth, allowing guests to capture
a night to be remembered. Horseware Ireland has grown to become the world’s most trusted
producer of horse rugs. New this year as a Gala Sponsor, Floridian Community Bank is committed to
supporting causes that help make South Florida a better place to live and work. The bank believes
that their commitment to community service is an important part of being a good corporate citizen.

Generously hosted by Belle Herbe Farm, the lively atmosphere will be brought to life through food,
drinks and specialty entertainment created for the evening by renowned event planner Dazzle
Creative Events. JustWorld is thrilled to announce that Caryl Philips & Frank Zeiss and the Palm

JustWorld and the CP Palm Beach Masters Brought Fun and Entertainment at the JustWorld Kid Zone!

February 08, 2017 By: maryhaley Category: What's Happenin'

Deeridge Farms, a 300-acre oasis of serenity and beauty set in the Village of Wellington, hosted the CP Palm Beach Masters Presented by SOVARO®. This year’s event featured a popular schedule and showcased one of the final two East Coast qualifying events in the Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping North American League to qualify for the 2017 Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping Finals in Omaha, Nebraska, in March.

JustWorld was thrilled to partner with the CP Palm Beach Masters for the second year to bring exciting entertainment to Wellington at The JustWorld Kid Zone. The JustWorld Kid Zone was held during the CP Palm Beach Masters on Saturday, February 4th, and Sunday, February 5th, from 11:00-2:00 pm. JustWorld ran their signature horseless horseshow, an event which allows kids to gallop over a course of miniature jumps and test their skills like the top riders. JustWorld mascots, mini ponies Domino and Tootsie, tried out the course as well. Other fun activities included a balloon artist, face painting, a jumbo slide, and bounce house.

Special guest performer Johnny Rez, from the hit NBC show The Voice, sang the National Anthem on Sunday, February 5th, before the Grand Prix and his new single “Lifted High” from the movie “The Lachance Kids,” which will be released in April. Johnny Rez, a singer/songwriter from Miami, is a JustWorld Ambassador who recently traveled to Guatemala with JustWorld to spend time with students and Ambassadors at JustWorld’s partner project, Los Patojos. Johnny also performed at the 14th Annual JustWorld Gala, sharing with JustWorld’s Gala guests his personal story of how music changed his life and his new connection to Los Patojos before hitting the dance floor while he sang live. Johnny stopped by the JustWorld Kid Zone to join in on all the festivities as well.

The CP Palm Beach Masters believes in JustWorld’s mission of breaking the cycle of poverty by funding local partners around the world to benefit children. As the Presenting Sponsor of JustWorld’s 14th Annual Gala, the CP Palm Beach Masters made a generous donation to help support JustWorld’s life-sustaining projects in Cambodia, Guatemala, and Honduras. These projects help sustain programs that provide basic needs to more than 6,500 children with little opportunity to receive support from other sources. With their donation, thousands of children will be supported through education, nutrition, health and hygiene, and leadership and cultural development programs.

Bromont, Quebec – August 15, 2013 – The Golf Chateau Bromont fairway was packed with spectators and participants for the Fifth Annual JustWorld Benefit Golf Tournament, presented by Samuel Fils & Cie Limitée and the Samuel Group, on Monday, July 22, 2013. L’International Bromont show jumping tournament in Bromont, Quebec, was nothing short of a success for JustWorld International. The non-profit organization hosted a series of fundraising activities for supporters of all ages, with the Benefit Golf Tournament as the highlight fundraising event. The Canadian equestrian community joined together for the three-week series running from July 11-14, 17-21, and 24-28 raising over $17,000 raising support for their mission to provide nutrition, health, hygiene, education, as well as leadership and cultural development programs for impoverished children.

 

The lush greenery of the Golf Chateau Bromont was alive with action as participants swung for a just world during the Fifth Annual JustWorld Benefit Golf Tournament, presented by Samuel Fils & Cie Limitée and the Samuel Group. The golf tournament was organized by Canadian international judge Phililip Rozon, and was motivated by his desire to help JustWorld pursue their mission as an organization working as a catalyst for positive change in the developing world. The tournament was designed to bring together the equestrian community while continuing to raise awareness and funds for JustWorld International.

“It was a spectacular day for golf, although we were not out in great numbers for gold, those who participated in the day, including the people who only came for the dinner, were very happy to support JWI, and that they did,” Rozon stated. “This was a record year for fundraising, in our fifth year we outdid ourselves and raised more than any other year. We all had a fun day and the kids that mean so much to us will have the chance to go on to greater and better lives in the future. In the JWI world a little goes a long way! Thanks to Roger Deslauriers and his team for making JWI a part of the International Bromont every year.”

Young Riders from Around the World Rally to Raise Over $87,000 for Children in Need

June 08, 2013 By: janwest Category: What's Happenin'

Wellington, FL – June 7, 2013 – It was a busy five months for JustWorld Ambassadors, but the numbers are finally in for the 2013 JustWorld Team Challenge. It was Team Guatemala who won the challenge this year, raising more than $31,000 through hard work, fundraisers and generous donations. Three teams representing JustWorld projects in Guatemala, Honduras and Cambodia raised over $87,000 in total–an unprecedented amount raised by young rider fundraising initiatives. JustWorld International is a not-for-profit humanitarian organization that funds life-changing nutrition, health and hygiene, education, and leaderships and cultural development programs for impoverished children in the three represented countries.

The Team Challenge began January 1st and ran through May. Two co-captains, one based on the West Coast and one on the East Coast of the United-States, led each team. The teams were comprised of JustWorld Ambassadors consisting of Juniors, Amateurs, Professionals and Technical Officials. The Team Challenge opened a new outlet for JustWorld Ambassadors; teaching them about raising awareness of the JustWorld projects and raising funds for these projects by utilizing e-mail, phones and social media to capture the technology of today, and in doing so, raise awareness of those in need. The teams created their own innovative ideas to raise funds for their country’s project. They created their own Facebook Groups and websites, and provided up-to-date information about their mission to spread the word about JustWorld.

 

In total, the Team Challenge was nothing short of a phenomenal success. With over $87,000 raised for the ongoing projects in the three countries, Ambassadors from 15 different countries across the globe united. In North America over 27 of the United States and five provinces in Canada were represented.

Team Guatemala raised $31,221 through their efforts. With West Coast co-captain Morgan Dickerson and East Coast co-captain Kira Kerkorian, Team Guatemala worked to raise funds to continue providing scholarships to attend school, educational reinforcement lessons, and access to a healthy community kitchen and free medical clinic. Guatemala is an impoverished Latin American country, where three quarters of the country lives below the poverty line. For Guatemalan children, this means many of them do not have access to health care, proper nutrition or education. JustWorld partners with Nongovernmental Organization (NGO) Los Patojos to establish a safe learning environment for more than 180 children in the dangerous community of Jocotenango. Team Guatemala would like to specifically thank the Ziegler Family for their generous donation to their team.

 

“The Team Challenge was probably one of the best things I have done with JustWorld. I have only been an Ambassador for three years, and the support and energy I witnessed from the Team Challenge was great. I was so thankful to be a part of such a dedicated team,” Dickerson described. “It really brought all of the Ambassadors closer together, and we worked a lot to try and coordinate different things. I was so amazed by the amount of supporters and the dedication; it really gave Team Guatemala a fighting spirit.”

Madison Bradshaw on the West Coast worked in tandem with East Coast co-captain Max Beaumont to raise awareness and funds for Team Cambodia. Cambodia is still recovering from the national trauma of Pol Pot’s brutal regime and genocide from roughly 35 years ago. The country now struggles with a lack of free education and extreme poverty-particularly in rural areas where 92 percent of the impoverished population lives. JustWorld partnered with the People Improvement Organization in Phnom Penh to address this problem and has built two schools and funds the education of 800 children. Team Cambodia was able to raise $28,608 and had a generous donation from the Rizvi Family. They also saw great success from International Donors and saw repeated donations from several donors.

 

“As a Co-Captain I realized that we needed a lot more organization on the West Coast, where we don’t have the same level of support, adult guidance and leadership,” Bradshaw explained. “I was trying to get the other Ambassadors to create their own initiatives, try new thing and get more kids involved. A lot of them want to gain more involvement, but they don’t necessarily know how. The Team Challenge gave them a concrete way to do that-it gave them ideas and tangible goals. We had ambassadors that really rose to the occasion.”

“We had really creative ideas involving golf carts at the horse shows, cup cake sales, belt sales, and even made our own swag bags that were really popular. One of the best things we did was the Million Dollar Grand Prix project where we had all of the riders sign a JustWorld saddle pad, and then raffled it off. You can also see many of our supporters wearing bracelets that the kids from Cambodia made themselves, it was such a group effort,” Bradshaw said. “I would like to see more involvement next year from Ambassadors in other Zones and countries; I think that the Team Challenge has even more potential to make an impact.”

 

West Coast Captain Sarah Abdi and East Coast Captain Ali Lieberman represented Team Honduras. These co-captains raised awareness for the second poorest country in Central America. Honduras suffers from extraordinarily unequal distribution of wealth and high unemployment. JustWorld has worked throughout Honduras to address the education, health and nutrition of children in impoverished communities. JustWorld currently works with local NGO Compartir to bring education and social development to children through the mobile library, which reaches 2,500 children in slums around Tegucigalpa. This team raised $27,196 to help JustWorld continue their mission in Honduras. Katie Quirk generously donated to their cause, and Team Honduras had the most International Donors.

“The Team Challenge was a really awesome experience, definitely hard work, but so rewarding,” Lieberman said. “I think the greatest thing I will take away is the feeling of making a difference for them. You are doing philanthropy for them, but the work you are doing also helps you to become an even better person. It is such satisfaction to know that you have helped them. This is something I never would have had if I hadn’t been involved with JustWorld, this challenge has opened my eyes to so many possibilities.”

 

Lieberman concluded, “Such a fabulous experience, and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to lead the team and work with the JustWorld staff. I am so glad I was able to help the kids in Honduras, even if it was only in a small way.”
