Wellington, FL – February 8, 2018 – Equestrian Sport Productions (ESP) welcomes Fidelity Investments® as a returning sponsor for the 2018 Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington, FL. Fidelity Investments® has been a sponsor of the Winter Equestrian Festival for ten years and a presenting sponsor of the Great Charity Challenge (GCC) since its inception in 2010. Additionally, Fidelity Investments® is the title sponsor of week five’s CSI 5* competition on February 7-11, which will feature the $384,000 Fidelity Investments® Grand Prix CSI 5* on Saturday, February 10.

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 35 randomly selected charities in Palm Beach County. Over the past seven years, $9.2 million has been given to more than 200 different area charities as a result of the GCC. This year, event producers met their fundraising goal of $1.5 million with another successful event on February 3, and reached the $12 million milestone in money donated.
