JustWorld Gala Returns To Wellington’s Belle Herbe Farm Jan. 12

The nonprofit JustWorld International is bringing Hollywood to Wellington for its 15th annual JustWorld Gala, presented by Caryl Philips & Frank Zeiss and the Palm Beach Masters Series, on Friday, Jan. 12 to raise funds to support education and nutrition programs for children living in impoverished communities around the world.

Each year, JustWorld International hosts the gala to celebrate and applaud the positive change that the organization and its supporters is making in the lives of children who need it most. The JustWorld Gala attracts some of the equestrian industry’s top riders, trainers, owners and supporters, as well as important members of the community.

This year’s gala will commemorate 15 years of making strides for change to create a more just world. Through the equestrian community, members of JustWorld International work together to break the cycle of poverty and help children in need around the world become positive leaders in their communities.

Hundreds of people from more than 40 different countries have joined the JustWorld community with the intention of improving children’s lives. Currently, JustWorld International supports local non-government organizations (NGOs) in three countries: Cambodia, Guatemala and Honduras. In total, JustWorld is supporting more than 6,500 children this year alone, focusing on education, nutrition, leadership and cultural development programs.

This year, the theme of the gala will be “A Night of Hollywood Glamour.” JustWorld promises to bring spectacular entertainment to the event, with a few surprises. Guests are welcome to come dressed as their celebrity selves to reflect the festive theme.

The evening will host a series of fundraising events that will directly benefit JustWorld’s supported NGOs, including a silent auction and live auction. The Longines Global Champions Tour and Global Champions League have donated a VIP table for four guests in the exclusive hospital lounge at the tour’s highly anticipated event in Miami Beach from April 5-7. Other live auction items include an Exclusive Premier Golf Membership at Wellington National Golf Club, a wonderful Bolay catered event for up to 50 guests, a Palm Beach Master Series VIP package, a Hollywood package including four VIP tickets to The Late Show with James Corden and much more. Exciting silent auction items include beautiful Conquest Jumping watches from Longines, Disney park hopper tickets and a VIP Bruins package.

JustWorld is delighted to announce exciting partnerships this year. Longtime supporter Voltaire Design is joining JustWorld as Gala Sponsor. Voltaire Design specializes in upscale custom saddles made in France with the finest French leathers. Continuing their ongoing support, Horseware Ireland will be coming back as sponsor of the fun photo booth, allowing guests to capture a night to be remembered. Horseware Ireland has grown to become the world’s most trusted producer of horse rugs. New this year as Gala Sponsor, Floridian Community Bank is committed to supporting causes that help make South Florida a better place to live and work.

Hosted by Belle Herbe Farm, located at 3206 Old Hampton Drive in Wellington, the lively atmosphere will be brought to life through food, drinks and specialty entertainment created for the evening by renowned event planner Dazzle Creative Events. JustWorld thanks Caryl Philips & Frank Zeiss and the Palm Beach Masters Series, who are returning as the Presenting Sponsors.

The Palm Beach Masters Series, launched in 2016 when the Jacobs family successfully bid to keep World Cup qualifying horse jumping in Wellington, delivers thrilling equestrian competition at the highest levels of the sport. The series is hosted at Deeridge Farms, a stunning location at the heart of equestrian sport in Wellington, and offers riders, spectators and sponsors unforgettable hospitality and world-class show grounds. The signature event of the series, the Palm Beach Masters, is one of only seven North American east coast qualifiers for the Longines FEI World Cup.

JustWorld is also thankful that Bolay will be returning as the Official Catering Sponsor of the evening, providing signature high-quality ingredients and preparing all of the delicious food for the passed hors d’oeuvres, delectable tasting stations and desserts.
