As part of an ongoing commitment to a wide variety of social and conservation based charitable initiatives, Ker & Downey is a sponsor of the ‘Pin Oak Charity Horse Show.’ This 75 year-old, Houston based charitable foundation raises funds for the support of the Texas Children’s Hospital, and through the Ronald McDonald House Houston and Candlelighters of Houston, supports sick children and their families through the often long and difficult process of recovery. The Pin Oak Charity Horse Show takes place in west Houston over a two-week period with over 60,000 spectators turning out to watch the show rings fill with Hunters and Jumpers, American Saddlebreds, Andalusians, Lusitanos, Working Equitation, and Welsh Hunter ponies.
In keeping with Ker & Downey’s ongoing support of this local organization, and on an unseasonably warm and sunny winter’s day, Ker & Downey competed at the Pin Oak Charity Horse Show’s second annual sporting clay shoot at the Greater Houston Gun Club.
The 2015 team of four included Ker & Downey President, David Marek and Destination Specialist Cherie Tann. After 75 rounds of clays, team Ker & Downey placed second overall, while team member Kirk Kuykendall tied for third place for his individual score! Nearly $20,000 was raised for the charities Pin Oak supports with the event. Ker & Downey looks forward to competing again in 2016.
Ker & Downey is committed to giving back both internationally and locally, and strives to make an impact in our own community. Making a difference in people’s lives lies at the heart of our passion, whether it is through the support of charities like the Pin Oak Charity Horse Show or our own Nets for Africa program. We invite you to come alongside of us as we work to support and protect the world’s greatest treasure – it’s people.
