About the Cause

Established in 1987, the Ocala Royal Dames is an entirely volunteer-run organization dedicated to eradicating cancer. It is a 501(c)(3) designed to raise funds for research and education projects. The charity’s members stay up-to-date with industry breakthroughs via reports, seminars, and yearly tours of both the UF Health Cancer Center and Moffitt Cancer Center.

About Hope

“Hope,” the striking turquoise and copper 2020 Horse Fever horse sponsored by Showcase Properties, is the work of long-time Ocala artist Paul Ware. A graphic artist, fine artist, illustrator and photographer, Ware was born in Missouri, raised in New Hampshire and moved to Ocala in 1982. He launched Drawn By The Light, Inc., his full-service design studio, in 1998. “Hope’s design was inspired by family members and friends dealing with cancer and is meant to honor anyone who’s had cancer in their life,” says Ware. “A family member was recently diagnosed and getting treatment as I was working on my horse.”
