Ponies & Pearls Sunday Brunch Polo VIP, National Polo Center
February 18 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm$275
Ponies & Pearls – A Women’s Empowerment Event Presented by The Tucker Foundation & Mrs. Gillian Johnston, celebrates the accomplishments of women and the legacy of Dorothy Brooke, founder of the Brooke family of charities. Making its second appearance in Wellington, Florida, on Sunday, February 18 in The Pavilion at the National Polo Center, the Sunday Brunch Polo VIP event is held during the U.S. Open Women’s Polo Championship Final. Event chairs, Gill Johnston and Aimee Waters are pleased with the support secured from sponsors, including Shutts & Bowen LLP, Valley Bank, and The Bainbridge Companies. Individual tickets start at $275 with table sponsorships available with funds raised dedicated to programs targeting women as the main equine caregivers across global projects.
Reminiscent of polo elegance, Brooke USA is asking guests to wear polo chic and ladies are encouraged to wear a hat, pop of orange, and boast their pearls, while enjoying breathtaking views and rigorous competition. A hat contest with winners announced at the end of the afternoon and an exclusive silent auction and travel auction through charity partner AmFund will serve as fun activities for everyone to look forward to, including men. Quickly becoming one of Wellington’s favorite events of the winter season, Ponies & Pearls was conceptualized by Brooke USA Board Member Katie Roth to celebrate women on both the American polo fields and the working fields in the most vulnerable communities. The customized event logo was graciously created by Heidi Caldwell Design of Newman, GA.
Ponies & Pearls is part of ‘Paint Wellington Orange’ to help improve the plight of working equines. Now on its 7th year, the signature event series offers something for everyone, while raising funds for a variety of projects supporting working horses, donkeys and mules, and the people they serve across the globe, including the U.S. This year’s second annual event trifecta which includes Sunset Watering Hole and Divertimentos & Dressage, builds on a successful trajectory for Brooke USA reaching established, and up and coming, equestrians in Wellington.
Tickets: $275 with table sponsorships available
