Based on a community needs assessment with the county, in partnership with local agencies and in direct response to the unique setting surrounding COVID-19, the event’s 12th edition committed to shifting a majority of its funding priorities towards local non-profits who are directly supporting and assisting the most vulnerable and affected populations in Palm Beach County.
For Palm Beach County charities, the GCC offers a glimpse of hope. Through the support of the equestrian industry and the local community, the event has acted as a catalyst for charitable giving over the last 11 years, distributing $14.8 million to 256 local non-profit organizations.
Scheduled to take place on Saturday, February 6, 2021 at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center (PBIEC), the event plans to distribute an additional $1 million to local non-profit organizations.
Equestrian Sport Productions (ESP), the PBIEC operating organization that oversees equestrian events at the venue throughout the year, donates the facility, staff, and infrastructure to ensure the success of the charitable event and guarantees that 100 percent of the funds raised are redistributed in the community.
While the GCC has been extremely blessed by the generous support of the equestrian community to date, the current settings surrounding COVID-19 warrants for the event to extend its reach and partner with local change agents in the hopes of creating a broader impact during these challenging times.
Donations and sponsorships from local families, foundations, businesses, vendors, equestrians, and visitors, ranging from $5 to $50,000, are what will make the event reach its fundraising goal of $1+ million this year.
