|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.
