Jump for Charity presented by Noelle Floyd.com
This initiative has been underwritten by Hampton Classic Staff and Noelle Floyd.com, enabling 100% of the monies collected by Jump for Charity to go to the winning charity.
Recently we paired 10 riders with 10 select charities that are near to the hearts of Hampton Classic staff members (did you see the live video draw on Facebook?). We are producing thirty baseball caps for each charity/rider team which will feature the Hampton Classic logo, the Charity name, and the rider name, and each hat will be signed by that charity’s rider. These hats, available for $100 per hat, may be pre-purchased on the Hampton Classic website or purchased onsite at the Hampton Classic ticket booth and show office, while supplies last. Pre-purchased hats may be picked up at the Classic beginning August 28, or you may choose to have the hat shipped to you in September. If all of the hats sell, a total of $30,000 will be raised, which will be awarded to the winning charity. The charity paired with the participating rider who has the best finish in the $75,000 Douglas Elliman Grand Prix Qualifier presented by LONGINES will receive 100% of the monies raised as part of the Jump for Charity.
Here’s a brief description of each of the amazing charities we’ve selected to be part of the inaugural Jump for Charity program and their paired rider. We encourage you to click through to each of their websites, and to follow them on their social media platforms, to learn more.

The Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation has a duo on their team with Danielle and Jimmy Torano. SASF was created by a band of local Southampton citizens when funding for a municipal shelter was eliminated due to budget cuts. The Shelter’s mission is to provide for the welfare of the ever growing number of homeless animals, and, in turn, to place them in permanent caring homes. Although primarily focused on rescuing homeless animals in the community of 22 towns, the Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation also rescues dogs from “kill shelters” from across the country. The Foundation provides a veterinary clinic for incoming medical evaluations, provides public spay and neuter services, micro-chipping, and inoculations. www.southamptonanimalshelter.com
