For the 13thconsecutive year, the Newport Polo Club has succeeded in generously supporting worthy causes with a sold-out fundraising gala, and being the season of giving, welcomes nominations of nonprofit civic or charitable beneficiaries for its next gala, on Friday, Aug. 1, 2014 in one of Newport’s famed mansions. For more information about the 2014 gala, please contact Newport Polo via email atNewportPolo1@gmail.com.
It was a night of Bread and Circus when the annual International Polo Charity Ball, dubbed Bacchanale Ball in 2013, raised $12,000 for its beneficiary, The Hope Funds for Cancer Research, a 501c3 headquartered in Newport, while welcoming guests of honor, the Italian Polo Team. For details and photos from the event, please follow the Highlights tab at the top of this page.
Each year the Newport Polo Club selects a new beneficiary to support with the fundraising aspects of the gala. Criteria for the selection process includes 1. timeliness of need; 2. impact on local/state community; 3. 501c-3 status with dedicated volunteer base.
Sponsors and donors for the 2014 gala and auction are also welcome to inquire via email to NewportPolo1@gmail.com.
