Spirits and horses will soar at the 2014 FTI Consulting Great Charity Challenge presented by Fidelity Investments® (FTI GCC). A highlight of the charitable and social season for the past four years, this season’s event will once again feature an exciting pro-am show jumping competition to benefit numerous charities in Palm Beach County. The free, family-friendly evening will also offer a petting zoo, magician, face painters, carousel rides, and live entertainment.
This year, over 600 charities applied for a chance to be one of the 34 lucky participants in the 2014 FTI GCC which are then paired with one of the rider teams and awarded a prize money donation based on their team’s performance. The winning rider team’s charity will be awarded $150,000 and the remaining prizes will be based on a sliding scale with every charity guaranteed to win a minimum of $10,000. This year’s event is expected to raise more than $1.75 million with 100 percent of the proceeds donated to the participating charities.
