The Windsor Charity Polo Cup is a biennial event that takes place on Saturday, February 17, 2018, at Windsor, a sporting club community located on a barrier island in Vero Beach, Florida. The Hon. Hilary M. Weston, co-founder and Creative Director of Windsor and former Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, will be joined by Salvatore Ferragamo, grandson of the esteemed Italian footwear designer and leader of his family's expanding wine business, as the event's Honorary Co-Chairs.
Recognized as the signature high-goal charity polo match of the season, the 2016 event featured an exciting roster of top-level international players, including former Captain of the English national team Luke Tomlinson, and Magoo Laprida, Malcolm Borwick, Augustin Merlos, Julio Arellano, Ruki Baillieu along with Salvatore Ferragamo and TV personality John Walsh. Last year, the Windsor Charity Polo Cup raised $250,000 for Alzheimer’s charities at the local and national level.
Proceeds from the 2018 event will provide support to individuals and their families who are struggling with an Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s diagnosis and to help fund research to find a cure. Funds raised will be distributed equally to the national organization, The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research and locally to the Alzheimer & Parkinson Association of Indian River County.
Match attendees can either enjoy an elegant tented field-side champagne luncheon or a picnic in the festive field-side tailgating area. See the schedule for the various activities planned for the entire family.
