The Windsor Charity Polo Cup is a biennial event that takes place in February, at Windsor, a sporting club community located on a barrier island in Vero Beach, Florida. The 2018 event was co-chaired by the Hon. Hilary M. Weston, co-founder and Creative Director of Windsor and former Lieutenant Governor of Ontario and Salvatore Ferragamo, grandson of the esteemed Italian footwear designer and leader of his family's expanding wine business.
Recognized as the signature high-goal charity polo match of the season, the 2018 event featured an exciting roster of top-level international players, including Ignacio "Nacho" Figueras, Juan Monteverde, Lucas Criado, Carlos Gradica Jr., Jesse Bray, and Rodrigo Andrade, along with Salvatore Ferragamo and TV personality John Walsh. In 2016 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.
