2009 Charlotte Jumper Classic, CSI 5* Thanks Generous Sponsors

Charlotte, NC - April 10, 2009 - The 2009 Charlotte Jumper Classic, CSI 5* starts this evening, April 10, and continues through Sunday, April 12, at the Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, NC. This event brings together the best show jumpers in the nation for exciting sport, and it would not be possible without the generous support of its sponsors.

"This is a tough year financially for companies around our country; however, people still need support - now more than ever," said Robert Johnson, President of the Charlotte Jumper Classic, a non-profit that benefits the Bobcats Youth Foundation. "Corporate philanthropy and giving back has always been important in our society. It would be easy to take a backseat during difficult times, but I commend the corporations and individuals who have stepped up and contributed through their sponsorship of this year's Charlotte Jumper Classic benefiting the Bobcats Youth Foundation."

The Charlotte Jumper Classic would like to thank their sponsors and acknowledge their help with producing one of the best show jumping events in North America.
