This year Polo For Heart will be held at the Toronto Polo Club in Richmond Hill at 13401 Leslie Street on June 19, 20 and 21.
Now entering its 36th year, Polo For Heart has been a special event on many social calendars as a fascinating and successful fund raiser for heart and stroke related charities. Proceeds from this year’s Polo For Heart will go to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada and the Southlake Regional Health Centre in Newmarket. Polo For Heart has raised more than $6 million for charity since its inception three and half decades ago.
Each day of the event attendees will be treated to two international polo matches, a silent auction, charming boutiques and daily half time entertainment. Guests can also visit The BMO Kids Zone and can participate in the traditional champagne divot stomp, polo picnics and the best hat contests.
Buy a corporate table and entertain your friends and/or clients. General admission to Polo For Heart is only $20; children under 12 are free.
