Polo for a Purpose

  Brandon Phillips, Honorary Chairman



Luncheon and Professional Match Raise Funds for a Cure

Polo season’s is off and running and will be highlighted by a very special event, Polo for a Purpose, a day to benefit The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Palm Beach. The exciting event will be held at the International Polo Club on Monday, January 19th. A sellout crowd of 250 guests will enjoy a delectable luncheon and exclusive silent auction followed by a riveting professional polo match featuring world class players Brandon Phillips, Jeff Blake, Sugar Erskine, Mariano Gracida, Jeff Hall, Kris Kampsen, Chris Nevins and Nic Roldan on the Stadium Field.  All funds raised will go to lifesaving blood cancer research and patient services.

The second year event is being chaired by P.J. Rizvi and Visse Wedell with Brandon Phillips as Honorary Chairman.  Phillips is a blood cancer survivor who was diagnosed at age fourteen with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.  “All the money in the world could not save my sister, Penny,” said P.J. Rizvi.  “But maybe the money we are raising from this event, along with your participation, could prevent another family from the tragedy and heartache we suffered.” 

Supporters of the event include TESLA of Boca Raton who will be offering test drives the day of the event, Hadden Landscaping, The Rizvi-Blanchard Family, Pegasus Builders, Equestrian Sports, Signature Tutoring, Peacock Farms, The Wedell Family Foundation, Heritage Farms, Visse Wedell for Douglas Elliman Realty, Insight Property Management, Meadowbrook Horse Transport, Heritage Farms, Marshall & Sterling Insurance, Miller & Associates, Catamount Farms Farrier Service.

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society® is the world’s largest voluntary health organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research and providing education and patient services. The LLS mission: Cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
