The Newport Polo Club welcomes nominations of nonprofit civic or charitable organizations for consideration as the beneficiary of its 19th annual charity ball on Friday, Aug. 2, 2019. Each year the Newport Polo Club selects a worthy beneficiary to champion with the fundraising efforts of the gala.
Nominations by prospective organizations must include information to satisfy the following criteria for consideration by the gala committee: the nonprofit organization is required to have an active local volunteer corps to serve on the gala auction committee; it must be a 501c3; and additional consideration will be given to the nonprofit's relevance or impact on our community and to the timeliness of need & mission. Submit your nomination by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
