If you’ve ever wanted to enjoy a polo match while sipping champagne, and wearing a fancy hat, you’ll be able to this June at Polo for Heart, Canada’s largest and longest running charity polo event.
Now in its 39th year, Polo for Heart attracts thousands of attendees and has raised over $6 million for heart disease, stroke treatment and research since 1979.
This year, in addition to action-packed days of horses and entertainment, Polo Under the Stars is back by popular demand, giving attendees the chance to enjoy the thrill of polo in a glamorous setting under the night sky.
Taking place on Thursday, June 21, the event will feature two international polo matches, live entertainment, silent and live auctions, gourmet food, a ‘best hat’ contest, and an after party where the champagne will be flowing all night long.
This year’s theme is ‘White Hot Polo Party,’ so make sure to arrive in your crispest whites.
Don’t worry if you can’t make it to Thursday’s soiree, the fun continues over the weekend, with a full agenda of activities for both Saturday and Sunday.
On Saturday guests can enjoy two international polo matches, a pony parade, BMO Kids Village, a silent auction, half-time entertainment, and more.
On Sunday, guests can look forward to a similar agenda as Saturday, in addition to a family 5K fun run, bike, or walk.
If you want to enjoy some glitz, glam, and polo for a good cause, tickets are available online starting at $15.
