Midwest's longtime, generous supporters enabled the show to donate $15,000 to the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine’s Pediatric Fund from proceeds of its 2023 multi-breed show. Since its inception, the Midwest Charity Horse Show, an all-volunteer, nonsubsidized organization, has donated its annual proceeds to a Springfield area charity and has selected SIU School of Medicine’s Department of Pediatrics as its beneficiary. Since 1987, Midwest Charity Horse Show Association (MCHSA) in partnership with SIU School of Medicine’s Department of Pediatrics has been an integral part of helping children with chronic illnesses live happy, healthier lives. Proceeds from this year’s horse show help provide medication, overnight lodging, food and/or transportation for families whose child is receiving treatment. The MCHSA endowment has given more than $292,000 to SIU School of Medicine's Department of Pediatrics since 1987.
