Wellington, Fla. – Nov. 20, 2017 – The Gay Polo League (GPL) is ecstatic to announce the four 2018 team sponsors for the 9th Annual Land Rover Palm Beach International Gay Polo Tournament, which will return to International Polo Club Palm Beach on April 5 – 8, 2018. A testament to the most festive social event of the polo season, Cedar Crest Stables, Goshen Hill, Seminole Casino Coconut Creek and RSM US LLP will once again reprise their roles as sponsors of a GPL team.
“GPL is so honored that all four of the 2017 team sponsors have signed on to support our event for another year,” said Chip McKenney, Founder and President of the Gay Polo League. “It is a huge compliment to the tournament and our organization to have such loyal supporters in these high-profile companies.”
One of the premier team sponsors from the early years of the tournament and the 2017 Senators Cup champions, Catherine Malone’s Cedar Crest Stables is celebrating its eighth year as a team sponsor. A perfect candidate for sponsorship of the Gay Polo Tournament, Malone is an accomplished and well-known international dressage competitor, and outside the dressage arena she is an advocate for equal rights for LGBTQ people.
Goshen Hill, another returning team sponsor, will outfit a team of players for the second year in a row. President of the Goshen Hill Foundation, Inc., Caroline Moran, has been a supporter of GPL for a number of years, taking on various sponsorship roles. Moran is deeply committed to several charities focused on helping people in need and animal rescues.
Like Goshen Hill, Seminole Casino Coconut Creek also returns for a second year of team sponsorship as the reigning Founders Cup champions. Seminole Casino Coconut Creek boasts a reputation as one of the most energetic casino experiences in South Florida, and will bring that energy to the field with their team of players during the tournament in April.
Rounding out the four team sponsors is the leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services RSM US LLP, now in its third year of team sponsorship. A proud supporter of GPL, RSM US LLP places emphasis on diversity in the workplace and offers a Pride network group to employees, another perfect fit as an inclusive team sponsor for the tournament.
Lucky for the members of the four teams, Black Hound Sports, the England-based outfitter renowned for dressing polo players worldwide in their bespoke designs, has joined GPL for the 2018 tournament as the Official Supplier. Team members will each don custom-crafted jerseys featuring the team name and a one-of-a-kind design created specifically for the 9th Annual Land Rover Palm Beach International Gay Polo Tournament.
GPL is grateful to the four team sponsors for their ongoing support of its diversity polo action, and is excited to see how the tournament unfolds in the spring. Stay tuned for player announcements, and be sure to mark your calendars so as not to miss the most exciting polo event of the season next year!
