International Polo Club Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Day

Polo players, fans and horse owners recently gathered at the International Polo Club Palm Beach in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Day.

Guests mingled over bubbles and culinary creations during Sunday’s champagne brunch, which helped raise money for the Luciano Martinez Scholarship Fund of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Palm Beach County. Media sponsors ESPN Deportes 760, Portada Magazine and Original Impressions honored visiting international polo players with a Latin-inspired brunch menu.

The Veuve Clicquot/Gardens Mall Fashion on the Field winner, Dr. Alley Schmidt, transformed a strapless floral dress, opulent beaded belt and bohemian pink hat into a stylish work of art. Inspired by the radiant sunlight, Schmidt was a standout in bright colors and enthusiasm for the game. Her prize was a Gardens Mall gift card and a bottle of Veuve Clicquot Champagne.

Sunday Polo is the hottest ticket in town. Lawn seats, box seats and the popular Sunday Brunch & Polo package are selling out quickly. Secure tickets today to the upcoming Piaget Gold Cup (March 9-23) and the Maserati U.S. Open Polo Championship (March 30 through April 20). Tickets are available online at
