Sunset Polo Returns to The Wanderers Club March 24 with 2nd Annual Nic Roldan’s Sunset Polo

Wellington, Fl. – February 11, 2017 – Nic Roldan’s Sunset Polo & White Party, hosted by Mark and Katherine Bellissimo to raise awareness and funds for Brooke USA, returns to The Wanderers Club on March 24, 2017. Last year’s inaugural event set the bar high, raising over $140,000 for the equine welfare programs of Brooke, the world’s largest international equine welfare charity. 

For over 80 years, Brooke has been providing sustainable solutions to enormous equine welfare challenges across Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East. Last year alone, Brooke’s work reached 2 million equines, benefiting 12 million people in communities where many people earn less than a dollar a day. Nic Roldan’s 2nd Annual Sunset Polo & White Party will continue to support the efforts of Brooke by raising funds for critical third-world programs.

This year, the previously sold-out event will kick off with a sunset polo match leading up to the poolside White Party, featuring an Argentine-style asado, as well as live and silent auctions. Enjoy a refreshing evening of action, music, fine dining, specialty cocktails, and conversation poolside at the most beautiful social and golf club in Wellington. Proceeds of the entire event will benefit Brooke USA and its efforts to help the laboring equines that keep millions of families out of desperate poverty. 

The second edition of the Nic Roldan’s Sunset Polo & White Party is sure to impress, and tickets are selling fast. Adults are asked for a $75 donation that includes access to the polo game, as well as the asado and admission to the White Party. Children, ages 12 and under, will be able to enjoy all that the event offers, with the extra bonus of the event’s signature miniature donkeys. 

If you are looking to take your evening to the next level, reserve a pool-side cabana for eight, with private lounging, full access to polo and the White Party, as well as bottle service and passed hors d’oeuvres for only $3,000. New to Nic Roldan’s 2nd Annual Sunset Polo & White Party is the VIP Experience on the all-new veranda, including a dinner for eight cooked by a celebrity chef, open bar, and an English experience including afternoon tea and gin and tonic (G&T) happy hour showing off the splendors of Cowdray whilst Tregothnan will offer a “tea takes on the world” experience.
