Are you looking for a unique fund-raising event for your organization? Is your group bored with the idea of another "rubber chicken" banquet at a local hotel? How would you like an event this summer that combines the outdoors, buffet lunch, an exciting sports presentation, and raising money? Well, have we got the event for you!!!
Will Rogers Polo Club cordially invites your non-profit group to schedule a fund-raising event on a Saturday or Sunday during our Summer Polo Season. Invite your donors, contributors, and corporate sponsors to join us under white-canopied tables for an afternoon enjoying the exhilarating game of polo at Will Rogers State Historic Park.
The Park is located in Pacific Palisades, overlooking the ocean. The park was originally the private estate of Will Rogers; famed humorist, newspaper columnist, movie star, and polo player. In fact, the Will Rogers polo field is the last remaining field in Los Angeles California.
There is no finer spectacle in the world of sports than polo. The horses are thoroughbreds, breathtakingly beautiful and conditioned to perfection. The players are unique athletes, successfully balancing horsemanship, gamesmanship and ball control while galloping at top speeds.
To begin the event, mounted players will explain the rules, the equipment, and the horses to your guests to enhance their enjoyment of polo. Then there will be three polo matches; the teams named after each of your sponsors.
In between the matches, there will be a champagne "divot stomp" on the field. After the matches, the Polo Club will host a reception in your group's honor and pose for photographs with your guests and sponsors.
As if that weren't enough, throughout the day, your guests can also enjoy a catered luncheon, silent auction, raffle, fashion show, pony rides for the kids, and escorted tours of Will Rogers' home.
A list of groups that have recently held fund-raising events at our Polo Club follows. To see this list, please click on the link below.
With minimal preparation and expense, your group can raise anywhere from $5,000.00 to $65,000.00 (after expenses) for one afternoon, while publicizing your organization's worthwhile programs and services. Last year, the Polo Club helped raise over $100,000 for various charities. The Will Rogers Polo Club will gladly walk you through every step in the planning and production to ensure that your event runs smoothly and is a tremendous success.
