We’re excited to welcome back Polo for Philanthropy. Polo for Philanthropy is a non-profit organization dedicated to raising capital and awareness for local charities. Founded in 1989, they have raised over $2 million for charity with our signature events: The Derby Day Affair, Polo en Blanc and The Polo Classic. All of the profits from these activities are then donated to the organizations they select to be beneficiaries. Their two primary funding areas are: a) medical, health, wellness, fitness and nutrition and b) children and youth.
We will be hosting various happy hour events through out the month as well to celebrate and lead into their bigger events in August. They will have miniature horses at West End, Eden Prairie and Woodbury

Polo en Blanc | Friday, August 4, 2017
Polo in White. Imagine yourself surrounded by friends dressed in white, sitting at a table with white linens and place settings, eating fine foods, drinking fine wines and listening to award winning vocals as the summer sun fades during the Polo Classic qualifier at a pop-up whimsical dinner in Monegasque style (all white attire required).
Polo en Blanc features a fashion show in white, an exotic white car show, a white floral arrangement competition, a white hat competition, games of chance and more. Your ticket includes a reserved seat at tables of eight with linens, cutlery, china, flatware, stemware, candles and a floral arrangement. Cash bar. Free parking.
Polo Classic XXVIII | Sunday, August 6, 2017
The 28th Annual Polo Classic is the preeminent polo event in the Twin Cities with a rich history of exciting competition and unique events. This exciting day features a number of activities to stimulate the senses and entertain all, including, a Fine Art Galleria, Hat Competition & Parade, Divot Stomp, Champagne Toast, Live & Silent Auctions, over a hundred million dollars in classic and exotic cars and both women’s and men’s polo matches.
Break out the champagne and charge the field with your heels and spectators and stop divots. Join in this time honored tradition and one of the most memorable scenes in Pretty Woman with Julie Roberts. You know… It’s fun, we promise. Make sure to take a selfie and post it for all to see.
Dressing as a spectator for a live polo match means sporting all the British polo essentials like summer suit coats, lady-like dresses and of course, hats! The bigger the better! Come to the Polo Classic dressed to the nines. Our judges will be awarding prizes to attendees who have the winning look in multiple categories, so get creative – there’s plenty of chances to win!
During the month of July, we have designed our special CRAVE Cares menu to raise proceeds for this unique group!
