JustWorld To Host Kid Zone On Feb. 3-4 At Palm Beach Masters

Ambassadors and volunteers at last year’s JustWorld Kid Zone.

Local nonprofit JustWorld International has teamed up with the 2018 CP Palm Beach Masters CSI3*-W, presented by Sovaro, part of the Palm Beach Masters Series, to bring exciting entertainment to Wellington at the JustWorld Kid Zone.

For the third year in a row, the JustWorld Kid Zone will be held during the Palm Beach Masters Series on Saturday, Feb. 3, and Sunday, Feb. 4, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be many fun activities, including a jumbo slide, bounce house, horseless horse show, face painting, tasty treats and more.

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 at a world-class showgrounds. The signature event of the series, the 2018 CP Palm Beach Masters CSI3*-W, is one of one of only seven North American, east coast qualifiers for the Longines FEI World Cup.

The Palm Beach Masters Series believes in JustWorld’s mission of breaking the cycle of poverty by funding local partners around the world to benefit children.

“We are thrilled to once again host competitors and spectators for the Palm Beach Masters Series,” Lou Jacobs said. “The series showcases multiple levels of the sport — from amateur riders to the world’s elite — in a one-of-kind setting. JustWorld does a great job in helping us to provide fun activities for our youngest spectators, and we are honored to contribute to their incredibly worthy cause.”

As presenting sponsor of JustWorld’s 15th annual JustWorld Gala, held Jan. 12 in Wellington, the Palm Beach Masters Series donated funds to help support JustWorld’s partner projects around the world. JustWorld works with local non-governmental organizations in Cambodia, Guatemala, Honduras and now Belle Glade to help sustain programs that provide basic needs to children with little opportunity to receive support from other sources. With the donation, more than 6,500 children will be supported through education, nutrition, health and hygiene, and leadership and cultural development programs, giving them the tools to break the cycle of poverty.

The JustWorld Kid Zone at the Palm Beach Masters Series is free and open to the public. To find out more information on how you can join in on the fun, visit: www.palmbeachmasters.com.
