Wellington, Fla. – March 28, 2016 – The sold-out Inaugural Nic Roldan’s Sunset Polo & White Party to benefit Brooke USA is almost here! This lavish evening, set to take place at The Wanderers Club, is shaping up to be one of the hottest events of the season. From unbelievable auction items, VIP amenities, a picturesque venue and first-class décor, no expense was spared on this night, but none of which would be possible without the help of our generous sponsors.
Brooke USA ambassador, Nic Roldan, has devoted his time and resources to making the evening a smash hit for guests as well as a profitable and awareness-raising event for Brooke USA. Roldan has gone above and beyond by orchestrating the polo match, donating his polo expertise and personal time by auctioning private polo lessons to one lucky recipient and putting the final touches on the event with countless hours dedicated to making the pilot event a success.
Proprietors of the Wanderer’s Club and the Winter Equestrian Festival, Mark and Katherine Bellissimo, have been integral in making this dream event a reality. The club itself was responsible for supplying food, decorations, and parking. By underwriting costs and through sheer support and unparalleled planning, the Bellissimos have backed this special event from its inception. In conjunction with Roldan, Brooke USA, and the event committee, they have positioned this event to be a spectacular evening.
Polo apparel and product manufacturers, PoloGear USA, donated orange and grey team jerseys for the sunset polo game that will be auctioned off during the live auction portion of the evening. Gary Fellers and Jeanette Sassoon also worked with Roldan to design ambassador apparel for Brooke USA’s six ambassadors: Nic Roldan, Margaret Duprey, Allison Brock, Laura Kraut, Debbie McDonald and Boyd Martin
Worldwide real estate corporation Engel & Völkers has pledged their support and sponsorship to this event and cause. Carol Sollack of the Wellington Engel & Völkers graciously sponsored the tasteful swag shirts for event-goers, designed by PoloGear USA.
