Creating Women Leaders One Girl at a Time

Register to help us reach our goal of Creating Women Leaders One Girl at a Time!

The Prancing Ponies Foundation is committed to empowering women and creating a better tomorrow.

In support of their mission Prancing Ponies Foundation 501(c)3 has organized this fundraising event: Prancing Ponies Women’s Rally & Fashion Show 2021 in Monterey on Saturday, September 25, 2021.

Presenting sponsor AT&T, Platinum sponsor Monterey Touring Vehicles, Designer sponsor Brochu Walker, Beauty sponsor Heidi’s Studios Carmel, and Wine sponsor Dawn’s Dream Winery have extended their support to the foundation for empowering Women and inspiring girls to achieve their career goals.

SHINE! Celebrating Women Leaders in Business & Community; is a fundraising event packed with amazing activities  – it will start with a rally through Monterey County, a Wine Tasting pit stop, track time on Weathertech Laguna Seca Raceway, with the grand finale Fashion Show featuring designs by Brochu Walker and hair and makeup by Heidi’s Studios Carmel worn by local Women leaders. This event will be located at the Women-owned Monterey Touring Vehicles.

The proceeds from this fundraiser will go directly to low-income Women who seek to attend workshops and seminars to support their leadership growth and development. These important trainings are often financially out of reach for Women of limited means and we are missing out on a deep pool of knowledge and experience from these Women. Money should not be the reason Women don’t have access to the information they need to advance their careers, our society needs more diverse perspectives at all leadership levels.

All car models can take part in this rally. You can register your car or rent a car at a discounted rate from Monterey Touring Vehicles and register that car instead. To know about all the details of registration, visit


“Keep doing what you’re doing.  Changing lives.  I see it like this, I can feed 1 person, but helping create and develop a young woman into a successful giving person, she could feed hundreds using her skills.”

You’re feeding the dreams of girls hungry for something better in their lives. Something that would be completely out of their reach without mentorship and guidance.”

“Keep Pushing, we’re so proud of you…Everyone has haters! Use it as energy to keep helping people.”


“I just wanted to thank your team for creating wonderful experiences for young girls to develop their self esteem.  (…) As a single parent of two beautiful young girls, I commend you for starting a foundation to improve young girls self esteem and to help them to believe that they can achieve anything when they set their minds to it!!  Everyone has their own inner critic that tells them they are not good enough , not smart enough or not skinny enough etc …..So thanks for empowering young women and giving them an opportunity to ignore their inner critic and be the shining, strong and independent people that they are capable of becoming!!! Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate what you are doing for the youth of today!!”- J.T.
