Hollywood Charity Horse Show at the LA Equestrian Center
The Hollywood Charity Horse Show began in March of 1990 when William Shatner took a step forward to help handicapped children. Throughout the years other charities were also added to the cause. Today, the Priceline.com Hollywood Charity Horse Show, sponsored by Wells Fargo brings together world-class reining horses and riders in breathtaking slides and spins as they compete for top honors. As the day turns to night the auction begins and a music show is put on for the audience. This picture was taken on Saturday, April, 28, 2012 during the Arena Show showcasing one of the riders standing tall, on his horse no less, waving the American flag!

"What's up, doc?"

The arrival of the Easter Bunny has become quite the event at the Sherman Oaks Galleria. We were asked to design a banner to promote the event on site. The banner was a big hit with our "chubby" Easter Bunny sitting with his back to the breezeway surrounded by colorful eggs. The message was clear, "The Easter Bunny is Coming!" We had a great turn-out, even with the not-so-pleasant weather that Saturday. The event was moved to the Rotunda area and visitors got to enjoy activities provided by the Galleria.
The banner was placed in Center Plaza above the waterwall to get everyone's attention and attract them to attend the event.
