Upcoming Event: $100,000 Trump Invitational at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach

A fancy resort, horses, a beautiful ocean, in the heart of Palm Beach in January… You won’t want to pass this one up!  Mark Bellissimo and Donald Trump recently announced the $100,000 Trump Invitational at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach.  Bellisimo and Trump will host the first annual $100,000 Trump Invitational to benefit the 2013 FTI Consulting Great Charity Challenge presented by Fidelity Investments® (FTI GCC).

The Trump Invitational will be a fundraiser for the 2013 FTI Consulting Great Charity Challenge presented by Fidelity Investments®, an event that raises and distributes over one million dollars annually for 32 Palm Beach County charities in a pro-am team competition that takes place in late January.

“We are very excited about this event and the chance to have equestrian sport for the first time on Palm Beach Island,” said ESP CEO Mark Bellissimo. “It will be a spectacular event at a breathtaking waterfront setting. It will be a great chance to promote the sport and the athletes, all while raising money for the million-dollar FTI Consulting Great Charity Challenge. It has been a pleasure teaming up with the Trump organization and it should be one of the highlights of the 2013 winter season.”

What a perfect picturesque place for an afternoon of  a fabulous equestrian affair watching top riders like 2012 Olympic gold medalists Nick Skelton and Ben Maher,  Mclain Ward, Laura Kraut, Lauren Hough, Ian Millar, Margie Engle, Leslie Howard, and Rodrigo Pessoa.

More riders that will be galloping on the lush grass aside the oceanfront include: Kent Farrington, Christine McCrea, Charlie Jayne, Lauren Tisbo, Brianne Goutal, Kirsten Coe, Candice King, Shane Sweetnam, Tiffany Foster, Alvaro de Miranda Neto and Athina Onassis de Miranda.
