Par Avion Ltd. to Sponsor Pin Oak Charity Horse Show for Ninth Consecutive Year

HOUSTON, Texas (March 13, 2012)Par Avion Ltd., a business jet brokerage firm based in Houston, has renewed its Silver Sponsorship with The Pin Oak Charity Horse Show Association marking its ninth consecutive year as a sponsor.

The Pin Oak Charity Horse Show will be held at the Great Southwest Equestrian Center in the Houston suburb of Katy, Texas, from March 21 through April 1, 2012. The show benefits Texas Children’s Hospital, Houston’s Ronald McDonald House Family Rooms, and Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Family Alliance of Houston.

Janine K. Iannarelli, founder and president of Par Avion Ltd. commented: “The Pin Oak Charity Horse Show is one of my favorite events on the calendar. Par Avion Ltd. continues to focus our support of non-profit organizations that benefit children, animals and the arts. The Pin Oak Charity Horse Show offers a perfect platform for bringing horses, their riders, trainers and spectators together to raise funds for Texas Children’s Hospital and The Ronald McDonald House. Furthermore, the show and its associated events offer clients and business associates of Par Avion Ltd. an opportunity to experience the superior athleticism of horses and riders in a relaxed and comfortable setting.”

This year represents Iannarelli’s 25th year of involvement with The Pin Oak Charity Horse Show and its organizers. She has previously served as a committee chair, executive board member and enthusiastic competitor in the jumper divisions.

The Pin Oak Charity Horse Show is among the oldest and most prestigious horse shows in the nation, having been founded in 1945 by J.S. Abercrombie. In 1948, the horse show began a long-term commitment to raise funds to build and support Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston. The show contributed more than $125,000 in 2011 to its charities. Pin Oak has pledged a total of $700,000 to date with $380,000 of that pledge completed and $320,000 remaining. These funds are intended to defray the costs of building Texas Children’s first hospital facility outside of the Houston Medical Center — the Texas Children’s Hospital West Campus in Katy. To mark Pin Oak’s financial commitment to the West Campus facility, Texas Children’s Hospital honored Pin Oak by naming the Texas Children’s Cancer Center waiting area and the Second Floor Child Life Playroom after Pin Oak Charity Horse Show. With its opening in April 2011, this new facility is one of the largest suburban pediatric hospitals in the country, encompassing up to 500,000 square feet and 96 licensed beds.

Janine, who is an accomplished rider, is also an excellent business person and has been instrumental in aiding Pin Oak with soliciting corporate sponsorships. As a good friend of Pin Oak and an enthusiastic supporter of the show, she understands the importance of Pin Oak’s mission to raise money for our charities — Texas Children’s Hospital, Houston’s Ronald McDonald House Family rooms, and Candelighters Childhood Cancer Family Alliance of Houston.”
