The Wellington Equestrian Group and an army of volunteers rolled out the red carpet Saturday, Dec. 8 for clients of the Caridad Center to host a fun-filled, festive Christmas party to bring cheer to disadvantaged children.

The party at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center featured lunch from Cilantro’s Deli in Wellington, a DJ playing Christmas music, face painting, visits with Santa and gifts galore.

Gifts, bikes and treats were given out to children, and a raffle was held for a number of great prizes.

The event was started nearly 30 years ago by Pablo Perez and B.J. Meeks. What started out as a small party has become a big event, which has been hosted for the past decade at PBIEC.
