Wellington, Fla. – Dec. 5, 2016 –
The organizers of the 2017 Palm Beach Masters CSI3*-W, to be held at Deeridge Farms Feb. 2–5, 2017, announced that admission for the first two days of the four-day international show jumping event will be free. Saturday and Sunday, the charge will be a nominal $20 per carload, with all parking proceeds benefiting the official charity partner, the Neil S. Hirsch Family Boys & Girls Club of Wellington
The Palm Beach Masters is excited and honored to support one of Wellington’s local charities.
“We have been very fortunate to have wonderful neighbors and friends, including our equestrian families, who help make our community a place we are proud to be a part of,” stated Jaene Miranda, president and CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County. “One of the things we are most proud of is the way this community cares for its children. We are appreciative of the Jacobs family and all those involved with the Palm Beach Masters for making this partnership possible.”
Countless children in Palm Beach County spend after school hours, summer and holidays home alone, while their parents work or look for work, but not the children who come to the Boys & Girls Club. In Wellington alone, the Boys & Girls Club serves over 1,000 boys and girls ages 6 to 18. Club kids have a safe place to spend their time as well as a chance to participate in life-enhancing and character-building programs that open their minds and prepare them for responsible citizenship. They have the opportunity to develop relationships with caring, trained adults that can positively influence character and provide hope that leads to increased confidence and a brighter future. The organization asks parents to pay only $30 a year. The majority of the funding for staff and operational expenses comes from support received through the community.
“The Neil S. Hirsch Family Boys & Girls Club of Wellington is incredibly important to our community,” said Louis Jacobs. “We’re proud to support their mission to provide a safe and fun space for kids to learn and grow.”
The Palm Beach Masters event will have its own entrance via 120th Avenue just north of the International Polo Club in Wellington, with parking at Deeridge Farms for spectators and sponsors. Valet parking will also be available. Competitors will need to access the property via the Deeridge Farms entrance off of Southfields Road.
