Brooke USA Announces Winter Season Event Trifecta

In typical Brooke USA Foundation’s innovative and creative style, the organization brings to Wellington three events never seen before in the community.

After creating the highly recognized Sunset Polo & White Party more than seven years ago, the board of directors determined that an overhaul was due, allowing Brooke USA to create events that appeal to different demographics and raising money for different projects supporting working horses, donkeys and mules, and the people they serve across the globe.

“We felt it was the right time to launch some very different events that would attract not only our loyal supporters but a brand-new group of friends,” CEO Emily Dulin said.

The first event in the line-up is the Watering Hole, a pool party on Monday, Feb. 6 at the National Polo Center. Crowds of riders who normally take Mondays as a day to rest will enjoy a fun-filled day of pool and poolside activities, entertainment with DJ Lexey, food and drinks throughout the day. The Watering Hole is sponsored by Human Touch, OnCourse Consignment, Cugini Winery, Celebrity Cruises, Equisite, Poll to Tail Magnawave, La Enovese Designs and Project Florida.

Poolside Cabanas of eight, VIP Tables of six, Chaise Lounges for two and general admission are available at $3,000, $1,500, $1,000 and $100, respectively. Cabanas include two bottles of wine, one bottle of spirits, beer and mixers with a designated server and additional VIP food and are the best buy for a group of friends wanting to party together.

In addition to the pool-based setting, guests will have the opportunity to “sip & shop” with some of the “coolest” brands in the Wellington and Palm Beach area — La Enovese Designs, Palm Harbor Boutique, Kai Lassen, Caryna Nina, Sofie’s Boutique, Veltri and Equine & Design. The pièce de resistance is an auction of chance and select silent auction items, featuring members of the Wellington Chamber of Commerce. The “sip” is sponsored by Celebrity Cruises and Hotels at Sea, featuring Oasis Celebration Rosé.

The Watering Hole is brought to Wellington thanks to a committee chaired by Ash Atkinson and Morgan Measey with Brianne Link, Kaela Genovese and Robert Reyers. This event will help provide water to equines in far-reaching areas across Ethiopia. With only 300 people allowed, to ensure your spot by the pool, visit

Brooke USA’s second event will be Ponies & Pearls, already a success in Aiken, S.C., and serving as a celebration of women’s polo and benefiting female empowerment programs across Kenya. It will be held on Sunday, March 19 during the U.S. Open Women’s Polo Championship Final at the National Polo Center.

Lastly, Divertimentos & Dressage offers a musical freestyle to a live symphonic orchestra. On Thursday, March 23 at the Vinceremos Therapeutic Riding Center, spectators will be overwhelmed by beauty when horses, orchestra and guests share the arena.
