Ganzi To Be Honored At March 21 Luncheon

The second annual Portrait of a Woman spring luncheon will take place Thursday, March 21 at 11:30 a.m. at the Sailfish Club in Palm Beach. The event is a benefit for Quantum House.

Among the luncheon’s honorees is Melissa Potamkin Ganzi. Representing the Wellington area, Ganzi is one of the few female dynamos in the male-dominated world of international polo. Her long line of competitive titles and accolades include being the first woman player to capture the prestigious Monty Waterbury Cup, three-time winner of the Aspen Snow Polo Championship, the 2008 Miami Beach Polo World Cup, the 2009 North American Cup and more. In addition, she frequently sponsors youth polo events and charitable functions such as Best Buddies, and recently hosted the International Cup polo tournament between the United States and Great Britain.

“The goal of this annual charitable event is to raise much needed funds for Quantum House while honoring some incredible local ladies during Women’s History Month,” said benefit founder Renee D. Plevy, who is also a celebrated portrait artist.
