“A Shower for Shelter”
Luncheon and Auction!
We are so grateful to all of you for your support.
YOU made our luncheon a success!
We were so happy to see you there, and
we hope you enjoyed your afternoon!
Ready for more fun??
Please mark your calendars for Saturday, February 2
and come out to the
Palm Beach International Equestrian Center
to cheer for our team in the Great Charity Challenge!!!
This means that we will be paired with a team competing in the Winter Equestrian Festival, and that we will win anywhere from $15,000 to $150,000!!
We were fortunate enough to have been chosen two years ago, and we won $30,000! So we are hugely excited to have been selected again. The better our team competes, the more we win!
This FREE, fun and exciting event is at the Equestrian Center, 13500 Southshore Blvd, Wellington. Gates open at 6:00 PM, and the competition starts at 6:30. Besides the competition, there is a petting zoo, carousel, and food stands.
You can learn more about the Great Charity Challenge here. Much gratitude to Fidelity Investments®, Equestrian Sport Productions, and all who organize and support the Great Charity Challenge!
See you there!

Why we so strongly believe in Holy Ground’s long-term, independent living model:
This 5-minute video depicts a theory of change from the Frontiers of Innovation community for achieving breakthrough outcomes for vulnerable children and families. It describes the need to focus on building the capabilities of caregivers and strengthening the communities that together form the environment of relationships essential to children’s lifelong learning, health, and behavior.
