Twice the impact, twice the action! Due to overwhelming popularity, the Newport International Polo Series is hosting 2 Charity Matches in 2018 as a fun afternoon fundraising opportunity for 501-c-3 organizations, with fast-paced polo action to benefit local charitable and civic organizations.
The Rotary Benefit Match will take place on Saturday, May 26, and welcomes additional nonprofits to participate, and the All Charity Day on Sunday, July 14, beginning at 5pm, for exciting 6-chukker polo action. Entry gates will open at 4pm. Admission tickets will be available in advance from the participating organizations, who will be listed on the event pages, and at the entry gate from the Newport Rotary Club (cash only). 100% of ticket sales support these worthy civic and charitable organizations for the welfare of our community.
In its second year, the 2017 All-Charity Day drew 2K supporters, raising over $22,000 for the 22 participating organizations. The beautiful, sunny July day included festive parties hosted by the organizations, a half-time dog parade, and the Newport Women defeating the Newport Men in a landslide victory.
