Started in 1970 as a one-day horse show, the Menlo event, according to its website, is "unique in that its origin is one of philanthropy." Throughout its history, the show has donated its proceeds to Bay Area charities including Planned Parenthood and Amigos De Las Americas.
This year, as for more than a decade, proceeds will go to the Vista Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired in Palo Alto. The Vista Center aims to help visually impaired individuals increase their independence through "evalutation, counseling, education, and training," and served over 3,700 clients last year.
In addition to riding events, the show will feature an auction, a Wild-West-themed gala dinner on Saturday night, and an assortment of luxury brands for both animal and human.
Tickets are $10 for a single day and $35 for a weekly pass, with seniors and children under 12 free. For more information, visit menlocharityhorseshow.com.
