Shelly Zachary
Everyday Star

For the past six years, Shelly Zachary has been the organizer and director for the Mizpah Shrine Charity Horse Show. At the age of nine, Shelly first became involved with the Horse Show as a competitor. The 2011 show is the 57th year for this annual event. In 2010, $45,000 was raised through corporate sponsorships, ticket sales and entry fees. All proceeds help support the Shriners Hospitals for Children and the Transportation Fund. The 22 Shrine hospitals for children provide treatment for congenital and acquired orthopedic conditions, burn injuries, spinal cord injuries, and cleft lip and cleft palate. Being involved with the Shriners isn’t something new for Shelly. While growing up, her parents were very involved with volunteering for the Shriners and now the Horse Show has become a family event with several members stepping up to help out. Shelly has been able to combine her love for horses and her passion for helping others into a grand event enjoyed by many. Shelly also volunteers for the SPCA and National Kidney Foundation.
