Charity Fair supports Don Diego Fund

Charity Fair Horse Show President Susan Farrior recently presented a donation to The Don Diego Fund Chair Allan Royster to support the fund’s annual college scholarship program. Farrior also serves on the fund’s board.

In May, the fund will award four $5,000 scholarships to outstanding San Diego County high school seniors who have participated in the San Diego County Fair and/or other activities associated with the Del Mar Fairgrounds.

The 2010 Charity Fair Horse Show will take place June 15-18 during the San Diego County Fair. The show is a benefit for the Don Diego Fund and the Helen Woodward Animal Center’s Pet Encounter Therapy and Therapeutic Riding. Visit

The Don Diego Fund is a nonprofit scholarship program formed in 1986 as a lasting tribute to Tom Hernandez, who, in the role of Don Diego, served as the legendary goodwill ambassador of the Fair from 1947 until his death in 1984. The fund welcomes sponsors at diverse monetary levels. Go to
