Prominent actor, author and noted philanthropist William Shatner will once again host his annual gifting ceremony and charity breakfast later this month on January 24 at Los Angeles’ Six Restaurant in Studio City.
The equine lover will be distributing money raised through last year’s Priceline.com Hollywood Charity Horse Show Sponsored by Wells Fargo to nearly 20 worthy charities around Los Angeles, most of which are predominantly focused on supporting children with special needs and veterans.
A tireless champion for underrepresented communities for decades, Shatner has helped raise tens of millions of dollars over the last 30 years through his charity horse show, all of which has gone to provide support and backing to a spectrum of Los Angeles-area nonprofits.
This year Shatner will present funds to 17 vital organizations, including the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Hollenbeck Police Activities League, A Place Called Home, AHEAD With Horses, ALSAC / St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Friendly House LA, Painted Turtle Gang Camp Foundation, Pets for Vets and Saddles for Soldiers.
“It’s an honor to be able to put this event on each year, as it just gets better and better,” says Shatner. “The assistance we are able to provide could not happen without the generosity of our charitable donors and the backing from sponsors such as Priceline.com and Wells Fargo.”
