Some of the world’s most famous and popular polo players will participate in the 2020 Great Futures Polo Day on Sunday, March 8 to benefit the Neil S. Hirsch Family Boys & Girls Club in Wellington.
The Celebrity Polo Charity Cup will feature Ralph Lauren’s “Face of Polo” Nacho Figueras, as well as other polo greats such as Nic Roldan. Amateur polo celebrities, such as TV personality John Walsh, will also participate in the match.
The morning event will be hosted by Marc and Melissa Ganzi and is free for the public. It’s a perfect opportunity to catch your favorite polo stars in action at the Grand Champions Polo Club, located at 13444 Southfields Road in Wellington. From 10 a.m. to noon, guests are allowed to park around the field to tailgate while watching the match.
Following the Celebrity Polo Charity Cup is a private polo brunch at the International Polo Club Palm Beach, located at 3667 120th Avenue South in Wellington. The brunch will be served field-side starting at 12:30 p.m., followed by a match of the USPA Gold Cup tournament. Tickets for the brunch and afternoon game are $1,000 per person and can be purchased at www.bgcpbc.org or by calling (561) 683-3281.
“The Great Futures Polo Day has become a tradition in Wellington,” said longtime Boys & Girls club supporter Ray Mooney. “It is very important to the Neil S. Hirsch Family Boys & Girls Club because it helps raise almost 25 percent of the club’s annual budget. Just as important, it also exposes the club and what the club does for the kids to the large polo community in Wellington.”
Proceeds from the event will benefit the local club, one of 13 Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County. The club provides services during non-school hours, as well as summer camp opportunities, to nearly 600 boys and girls from ages 6 to 18.
