The Great Charity Challenge is an exhilarating pro/amateur event in which amateurs are paired with world- class riders and randomly assigned with charities to compete for prize money raised by equestrian families and corporate donors. This unique competition awards a sliding scale of prize money to each of the 37 randomly selected charities in Palm Beach County. Over the past six years, more than $7.5 million has been given to more than 140 different area charities as a result of the GCC. This year, event producers met their fundraising goal of $1.6 million with another successful event on February 6.
“All of us with Fidelity Investments® here in Palm Beach County are delighted to be involved with the Winter Equestrian Festival and with the Great Charity Challenge. It’s an exciting 12 weeks of world-class equestrian competitions, with the GCC as a highlight. We are proud to be involved with an event that helps so many charities in Palm Beach County,” said Russell Binkley, Manager of Fidelity’s Investor Center on Palm Beach Island.
