Charity Luncheon to Benefit the Children’s Equitation Center Hosted by Fidelity Investments

Fidelity Investments Jumper Classic Plays Host to First Charity Luncheon to Benefit the Children’s Equitation Center

Hamilton, MA - September 10, 2006 – The Fidelity Investments Jumper Classic VIP tents that overlook the Coldwell Banker Previews Field were the beautiful setting for the first luncheon of its kind that benefited The Children’s Equitation Center. The Children’s Equitation Center is one of the many charities that will be beneficiaries of the event throughout the week’s festivities.

Over 100 guests were in attendance on this warm sunny day on the North Shore of Boston. The luncheon was graciously sponsored by Robert Johnson and The Charlotte Bobcats. Food was provided by Royal Catering, which is based in Brookline, MA. The Children’s Equitation Center (CEC) is a 501 C3 non-profit organization that was established by equestrian Roberta Wilmore. It is based out of her farm located in Ashfield, MA. The C.E.C. has developed over 70 riders throughout the five years it has been in existence. Their mission is to support, encourage, and stimulate the involvement of minority and other underserved children in equestrian sport activities.

“We are thrilled and feel very privileged to have the opportunity to host this event at The Jumper Classic,” said Roberta Wilmore, President of the Board for The Children’s Equitation Center. “The luncheon turned into a grand affair and was a great way for our guests, board members, and donors to connect with each other, and learn more about CEC. It allowed them to meet the some of the children involved in the programs and see how dynamic they have become and how passionate they are about the organization,” she added.

Show jumping action continues today with the $7,500 Mohegan Sun Speed Stake and will culminate with the $75,000 Fidelity Investments Jumper Classic Grand Prix. Opening ceremonies sponsored by One Sky Network will kick off at 11 a.m. Tickets for general admission can be purchased at the gate or online at http://www.jumperclassic.com.
