Compton Junior Posse gets generous boost from fund-raiser

From the Horsetrader sales staff - June 17th, 2010 - Ingate Column

The Grand Ballroom of the Los Angeles Equestrian Center came to life May 22 for the third annual Compton Junior Posse Fund-raiser. The beautiful evening of good friends raising money to keep kids on horses and off the streets took the organization well on its way to reaching its $1.3 million campaign. The grateful group is thankful to all who found a way to give, including sponsors like O.H. Kruse, contributors like jumper star Will Simpson with daughter Sofie, NFL Hall Of Fame lineman Bruce Smith, and so many more. Honoree Autumn Burke pledged two college scholarships to CJP students, and Saundra Price is giving a full year riding sponsorship to AA horse shows for one student! Special kudos go to the fabulous fundraiser committee: Mia Boudreau (Malibu Valley Farms); Saundra Price; attorney Beth Palmer; riding instructor Victoria Faerber; photographer Susie Randall; Patti Adair; Juana Cardiel and event coordinator Jaleeza Hazzard.

Blending a background in art, a passion for nature and a love of people and animals, Master Photographer Shelley Dunnigan of Ranch Life Portraits weaves casual, warm and colorful images into beautiful wall portraits, offering painting-like images on canvas to be passed down through the generations.  Shelley left the studio behind to work with families on location who have a strong passion in life such as horses and other animals.
