Pacific Palisades, CA– Malibu based nonprofit organization Safety Harbor Kids invited benevolent guests to their Safety Harbor Kids 7th Annual Charity Polo Fundraiser on September 7. The event was held under white tents amidst shady trees at the historic polo fields of Will Rogers Historic State Park on a scorching Saturday. This year, Segno Marketing and The Gold Hedge sponsored the event in partnership with the British American Business Council, BritWalk, Brits in LA and Tesla Motors.
Attendees dined on delectable seafood provided by celebrity Chef Jack Lee while enjoying Casal Nova Prosecco, a wine tasting and open bar as the chukkas were underway. Adding to the entertainment was MC Hal Sparks, a performance by Dream World Cirque, a string quartet, and a VIP gaming tournament which was won by Brits in LA co-founder Eileen Lee. With so much fun going on, it was any wonder that guests noticed the final polo match up, seeing the Santa Monica Polo Club victorious in their defeat over the Beverly Hills Polo Club with a final score of 6 to 1.
