West Palms Events Announces 2016 Woof Cup Charities and Sponsors

This crowd-pleasing event is back, supporting multiple charities as the festivities unfold Saturday, October 22 at the Del Mar International Horse Show. The Charity Woof Cup, Presented by the San Diego Union-Tribune, features a well-known Grand Prix rider and their equine partner, paired with a handler and an agility dog.  Competing against the clock, horse, dog and humans must work together to complete a relay course, beating the time to come out on top. Last year, this event had the crowd on its feet, and it was exciting to see the support and enthusiasm for these fantastic causes as well.

“We are honored to present this charity event once again,” Dale Harvey commented. “The Charity Woof Cup was such an overwhelming success last year, and it supports so many wonderful individual charities, while entertaining and uniting the spectators for a common cause. It’s fantastic to see an event like this provide so much charitable support while putting a smile on everyone’s face at the same time.”

San Diego Union-Tribune on Saturday October 22 are listed below:

“Keeping Kids On Horses and Off the Streets.” The Compton Jr. Posse (CJP) was developed to provide inner-city youth with year round after school alternatives to the lure of gang and drug lifestyles. For over 20 years, the Compton Jr. Posse has given inner city kids hope by teaming them with horses. Through these equestrian activities, our youth develop responsibility, discipline and self-esteem. We have helped three generations of youth go college, the military and into business ownership. CJP’s award-winning program has given inner city kids a framework for success by teaming them with horses and highly skilled instructors such as Olympic Gold Medalist Will Simpson.  Students learn to set and achieve both academic and career goals. There can be no better investment in their future.  Compton Jr. Posse Youth Equestrian Program, Address: 453 W. Caldwell St., Compton, CA 90220 Phone: 310-632-1247
Proudly Sponsored by Jo Cho Astani:
Jo Cho is an Amateur rider, breeder and competitor of Hunters and Jumpers for 35+ years.  As a minority herself, in and outside the horse show circuit, she is delighted to be included in support of CJP, building bridges across cultural, social and racial issues through the platform created by West Palms Events and Dale Harvey. Jo is also an accomplished designer consultant of 25 years. She resides in Malibu, with her three children and her husband, Sonny, along with an assortment of  horses, ponies and dogs. Jo has been involved CJP for about 15 years and has seen many transformations in its organization and activities and most impressively, in the CJP members.  As a mentor of CJP youth, she is so proud of those that had been awarded scholarships not only to ride and show, but to attend college.  There are CJP youth members “who encounter many defeats…but never become defeated”!!   And she is inspired by them everyday.
West Palms Events loves having the Compton JR Posse kids at all our events!
