30th Providencia Award

Congratulations to the Equestrian Sport Productions
Winner of the 30th Providencia Award 

The Providencia Award is given annually to a local business, organization or individual based on their extraordinary contributions (i.e. expansion of facilities, new events and outstanding business levels) to the vitality and prosperity of The Palm Beaches as a tourist destination. The Providencia Award is named after the Spanish ship that sank off Palm Beach's coast in the 1880s. Its crew salvaged the cargo of 20,000 Trinidad coconuts and sold them to local residents, who planted them along the waterfront, eventually inspiring the town's name.  To view a list of past winners, click here.
