LUNCHEON TO CELEBRATE UPCOMING PIN OAK CHARITY HORSE SHOW

Laughter and excitement filled the room as horse lovers from all over flocked to Neiman Marcus Galleria to celebrate the upcoming Pin Oak Charity Horse Show.  Special guest of honor, Craig Taylor, known for his exclusive line of high end women’s shirts, delighted the well-heeled crowd with his spring and summer collection.  The fashion show was followed by a sumptuous lunch.  Guests included Neiman Marcus exec Stacey Swift, Pin Oak President Lynn Walsh, BBVA Wealth Solution’s Rick Terry, Eva Bisso, and Hollis Grace.

Founded in 1945 by Houston philanthropist James S. Abercrombie and his wife Lillie, The Pin Oak Charity Horse Show got its start as a fundraiser for the first hospital in Houston dedicated to children, and the proceeds of the 1947 show provided a considerable portion of the initial backing that established Texas Children’s Hospital in the Texas Medical Center.  To date, the show has raised close to $4 million for Texas Children’s Hospital and Ronald McDonald House of Houston.

With a recent commitment of $300,000, Pin Oak is now helping build Texas Children’s first hospital outside the Medical Center and one of the largest suburban pediatric hospitals in the country, Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus. The gift will support the Hematology/Oncology services at the new hospital.
