Rally your supporters for a singular fundraising experience at the acclaimed Newport Polo matches. Two opportunities are available for 501(c)3 Civic and Charitable Organizations as the home team takes on local rivals in action-packed matches.
Saturday, May 30th: Rotary Benefit Match
Sunday, August 2nd: All Charity Day
The annual Rotary Benefit Match, in conjunction with the Newport Rotarians, dates back to Newport Polo's inauguration in 1991 and heralds the start of summer in Newport when locals are jumping to get in the groove of outdoor fun and summer visitors begin flocking. Then, the 5th annual All Charity Day brings a second fundraising opportunity with a new feature as the concluding day of a major tournament. Dozens of qualified 501(c)3s participate each year, and there is plenty of opportunities to include multiple groups during each match.
Fundraising is achieved through advanced ticket sales. Participants are welcome to host raffles, silent auctions, etc. for additional fundraising on game day. 100% of ticket sales support these worthy civic and charitable organizations for the welfare of our community. There is no cost to participate. Matches start at 5PM and last approximately two hours.
