The Chukka Foundation and Hanover Charities are excited to be hosting their signature Polo Charity Event on Sunday, 16th February 2020 at 2 p.m. at the Chukka Sandy Bay Polo Field in Hanover. The organizers are delighted to be hosting the Newport RI International Polo Team again this year alongside Jamaica’s finest talented polo players.
The Polo Charity Event will be a social affair with a delicious high tea and drinks, thrilling polo, games, auctioning, lively dancing with DJ Murdoch. The traditional hat competition will be an enjoyable part of the afternoon activities. This evening of fun will be dedicated to continuing the Chukka Foundation and Hanover Charities’ philanthropic missions; financing their scholarships and community projects throughout Western Jamaica.
The Polo Event’s origins are based in a partnership between Hanover Charities and Chukka Foundation to create a one of a kind social event in Hanover that would greatly impact the lives of Jamaicans. Hanover Charities portion of the proceeds provides scholarships for a number of youth in Hanover to pursue a tertiary education, as well as other community projects throughout the parish.The Chukka Foundation’s portion goes towards assisting schools and children with school supplies and equipment, community projects, and scholarships. The charity polo event is expected to bring together locals and visitors for an exciting family day of play, but more importantly as a chance to give back.
The Polo Charity Event has been endorsed by The Jamaica Tourist Board and other sponsors – Toby Inn included and is Jamaica’s largest and most prestigious polo event. It has gained positive local publicity and, with the Rhode Island Newport Polo Team participating this year, will receive an international audience to broaden the charities and sponsors reach.
