Hospice Hosts Brunch Benefit At Polo Club

The Mimosas and Mallets brunch on March 8 cheered the world’s finest polo players while benefiting the Hospice of Palm Beach County Foundation and the Hospice by the Sea Foundation.

The event nearly doubled in attendance this year. “This event has set the expectation bar high,” Foundation President Greg Leach said. “The increased turnout, the real connection to our mission, and a fast-paced championship polo match bring a great energy to what we are accomplishing.”

Mimosas & Mallets’ guests sat field-side with an unparalleled view to watch Orchard Hill defeat Valentine 14 to 12 in round one of the Piaget USPA Gold Cup. The delectable brunch buffet gave way to halftime’s classic champagne divot stomp, where guests took the field with eager anticipation.

Dr. Brian and Jennifer Schnipper chaired this year’s event, joined by committee members Kent and Amanda Baughman, Stacy Clarke-Bellows and Jennifer Foland. The brunch was made possible by the generous support of event sponsor Valley National Bank.
