2008 Wells Fargo Hollywood Charity Horseshow Hosted by William Shatner

FlickDirect brings you an exclusive press release from last weekend's celebrated event.

For almost 20 years William Shatner has been more than just a host at the Hollywood Charity Horse Show event to raise money for disadvantaged children. Every year concerned caring stars turn out to support Bill and the kids. This year he was joined by celebrity heavy weights Randy Travis, Lorenzo Lamas, Stephen Weber, and celebrity stunt trainer and performer: Anthony Delongis and his team the Rancho Indalo Riders.

Shatner himself saddled up and strutted his stuff on horseback along with several other top notch riders. Randy Travis serenaded dinner patrons at the exclusive $2500 per table dinner event.

Anthony De Longis and the Rancho Indalo Riders thrilled spectators with a gallant sword and whip stunt adventure performed almost entirely on horseback. The demonstration was hosted by "World Famous Whip Boy" and "Jack Dagger, the Kind of Fling" and also featured the beautiful "Creature" from Who Wants to be a Superhero?.  An enthralled William Shatner interjected witty commentary during the show, and was even caught gasping at De Longis' fearless performances. During intermission, Piper Nelson, a visually impaired 6 year old girl showed off her horseback riding skills, courtesy of "Ahead with Horses". To wrap up the show, De Longis and his partner, wowed the audience dancing their very own synchronized "Bull Whip Tango". 

At past events Shatner has auctioned himself off at the party for dances to raise even more money for the kids. Tickets are $20 general admission (kids under 12 are free), and $250 for the (separate admission) Western Dinner Party. Shatner says no administrative charges are deducted from the monies raised by the show. "Every penny goes to the children.." For more information about the event: (818) 840-9066 or
