Great Charity Challenge!

Boca Raton’s Promise extends appreciation to the FTI Consulting Great Charity Challenge and Equestrian Sports Productions, and our sponsors, Cynthia Sulzberger and Steven Green. Thanks also to our team of riders, and especially to our supporters who helped move the wagon a bit further along.
