October 2015 - Prizes or JR Posse

Show organizer offers charitable option.

West Palms Events is a proud supporter of Compton JR Posse (CJP) and is happy to be partnering with them on a brand new charity program at the Flintridge Autumn Classic! Class winners will now have the option to have West Palms Events make a donation to this worthwhile charity in lieu of receiving a traditional 1st place prize. Winners can opt-in by choosing a redeemable certificate along with their blue ribbon instead of the regularly offered prize. West Palms Events will make a monetary donation to the CJP for each certificate redeemed!”We are very happy to be able to help CJP with a new charity program,” says Dale Harvey of West Palms Events. “This is going to be a wonderful opportunity for competitors to support the charity as well!”

The CJP mission is “keeping kids ON horses and OFF the streets!” founded in 1988 by Mayisha Akbar, the program provides inner-city youth with a year-round after school program that uses equestrian activities to inspire youth to reach their personal, academic and career goals - a powerful alternative to the equally powerful lure of gang and drug lifestyles. 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. In 2014 the CJP provided service to over 1500 inner city youth, and scholarships to 12 CJP youth in college.
