2017 Polo for Heart Saturday & Sunday Agenda
$15.00 per person in Advance; $20 at the Gate. Children under the age of 12 admitted free
Come and enjoy an afternoon in the country, and help raise money for a great cause! Polo is an exciting game to watch, and you can get a close-up view of the action at Polo For Heart. There are two games played each day, as well as lots of other activities going on off the field.
Reserved tables offer a sumptuous gourmet lunch, or you can bring your own picnic. In fact, if you get creative you could be the winner of one of our daily “perfect polo picnic” contests (Saturday & Sunday only). Dress for the weather, don’t forget that you are outside and on grass, so high-heeled shoes can be difficult! Wear your best hat, you could end up winning the daily “hat contest”.
There is something to do for the entire family at Polo For Heart. Children love the BMO Kids Zone and bouncy castle, and the boutiques and silent auction tents are always filled with unique and interesting merchandise. Between games do the “pretty woman thing” and stomp some divots, also enjoy a complimentary glass of champagne during the divot stomp to help you on your way!
