Pearls Charity Cup Nets Over 3K For Breast Cancer Research

www.newportpoloclub.com

 

July 26, 2008 Newport, RI ? The Newport International Polo Series featured the home team ~ Newport against a regional rival sponsored by Pearls Boutique Hotels on Sat., July 26th in the Pearls Charity Cup, raising over $3,000 for breast cancer research.

         Pearls Boutique Hotels sponsored the match and co-hosted a fundraising endeavor with the Newport International Polo Series to raise money for breast cancer research, prevention, care and finding the cure.  Proceeds will go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation of New England.  Benefactors included All Occasion Transportation, Civetti & Longo Family, Comfort Green Buildings, International Tennis Hall of Fame, Legacy Yachts, Newport Harbor Corporation, PDQ Printing & Design, The Hinckley Company, Winebow Inc., Yale Women?s Polo Team/Olsen Photographic, and YellowPages.com.  Spectators were encouraged to wear pearls and 'pink' to show their  support! 

Teams in the Northeast Circuit of polo clubs travel far and wide to establish dominance over one another in the region, in multi-team tournaments and single-elimination matches.   Playing for Newport were Heather Rasulis and Dennis Mikolich alternating in the #1 position, Chip Steigler at #2, Dan Keating at #3 and Leonard Nihan at #4.  Pearls' roster included Amy Rice at #1, Wayne Gordon at #2, Dave Bullis at #3 and Ted Torrey at #4.

           Newport got off to a 4-0 lead in the first chukker with 2 goals by Keating, 1 by Steigler and a penalty conversion point by Rasulis.  Pearls got on the board in the second period with a goal by Gordon but Steigler's goal eliminated the gain momentarily until Pearls' Bullis and Torrey continued the attack with a goal and penalty conversion point to narrow the gap to 5-3.  Rasulis scored a solo point in the third chukker to end the half in Newport's favor, 6-3. 

          In the second half, Newport's Keating and Steigler led off the scoring, followed by Gordon for Pearls, then another goal by Steigler, and Gordon again to raise the stakes to 9-5.  The momentum shifted in the fifth period, starting with a Pearls point by Torre, answered with a Newport goal by Keating, but then 2 more goals for Pearls by Bullis and Torre closed in on Newport's lead, 10-8.  In the final chukker, Pearls tied it up with goals by Bullis and Torre again, bringing the crowd to their feet.  In the final minutes of play, Torre scored the winning goal for Pearls for an 11-10 victory.

          A Newport man won the weekly door prize drawing, which included tickets to Tanglewood, summer home of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, courtesy of WCRB classical radio Boston.  The two-hour match concluded with a cocktail hour to mingle with the players.

           Tickets to the matches are sold at the gate on the day of the match, opening at 3pm.  Tailgate picnics on the lawn are welcome with General Admission of $10.00 for adults, and children 15 & under are free.  Bleacher-style seating in the grandstand is also available with General Admission.   Tickets for box seating in the Subscribers Enclosure are also sold at the entry gates for $15/person, and tables can be reserved for parties of 8 or more by purchasing the tickets in advance.  For more information about attending the matches, schedule updates, season passes, and general information, call the Info Line at 401-846-0200.

           With tableside seating and choices of hot and cold food concessions at the matches and a full service bar on site, spectators need not plan ahead.  The Twisted Pony Bar is known for its craft beer selection, premium spirits and collection of boutique wines from all over the universe.  Bluepoint offers a mouthwatering raw bar, and Grillmasters offers a standard menu of sweet Italian sausage, hamburgers, hot dogs, BBQ Pulled pork, and a chicken special, chips, and homemade desserts; weekly specials including vegetable calzones to die for, macaroons, and Philly cheese steak sandwiches.  Catering  platters can be ordered from either concessionaire for individuals/groups wishing to pre-order for the matches.  You may contact  Grillmaster's Jerry Palmer & Meg Kolb at 683-4155 Hutiii@cox.net or Bluepoint's Paul Inveen & Maureen Potier at mailto:bluepoint@msn.com to inquire about ordering in advance for upcoming matches.

             But if you prefer your own cooking, then pack a tailgate picnic and cooler with iced down beverages to be doled out to the group huddled around the tailgate of your SUV.  Whatever your choice, it can be consumed from field-side blankets and lawn chairs just a few feet away from the polo action.

              One seasonal resident of Newport admits to reserving a Patron Table for the four-month polo season because "We have houseguests all summer and the polo matches are a great way to entertain them without lifting a finger."

           Just in from booking a Newport bride's nuptial party at a polo match this month, Polo Series organizer Agnes Keating attests to the fact that every weekend there are groups of all shapes and sizes convening to mark every occasion from birthdays, engagements, anniversaries and class reunions, to entertaining houseguests, clients, business colleagues, friends or neighbors," or simply reciprocating a previous invitation with an easy entertainment option that doesn't require cleaning the house or hiring help."  

             "But there is no need to wait for a special occasion", insists Keating.  "Just to enjoy these glorious days of summer with a chance to get outdoors for an afternoon of affordable entertainment with the kids and family is reason enough to come."

           Matches in June, July and August begin at 5pm and matches in September begin at 4pm and last about two hours.  The sprawling lawn and surrounding fields offer an opportunity for dog-lovers to bring Marmaduke along on a lead for the afternoon, and Moms swear it's the only activity their teenage kids are still willing to do with the rest of the family.  Attire is casual.  Shopping for unique souvenirs includes hand-painted signature jewelry from Angela Moore to accessorize any sundress;  Argentine leather handbags by designer Marcela Calvet;  and official apparel of the Newport International Polo Series.

           This is the 17th season of the Newport International Polo Series, sponsored by the  Carnegie Abbey Club, WCRB Classical Radio, NBC Channel 10, the Newport Daily News Pearls Boutique Hotels, Barton and Gray Mariners Club,  Lufthansa, Continental Airlines, Northwestern Mutual Financial Network, and Bose., as well as promotional partners including The Preservation Society of Newport, Bird?s Eye View Helicopter Tours,  Newport County Visitor & Convention Bureau, the Newport Music Festival, the International Tennis Hall of Fame and the Blackships Festival.  "Without their help the Series would not be as extensive as it is,? explained Dan Keating, Polo Series founder.  For more information about partnering with the Polo Series, click here.

          The Series takes place at the historic and picturesque Glen Farm, 715 East Main Road (Route 138) in Portsmouth , RI , just 6 miles north of downtown Newport.  Glen Farm is the remaining 100 acres of  a 700-acre manorial farm whose history dates back to the 1600's.  Its classical stone barns from the Gilded Age and its park-like grounds were rescued from ruins and rehabilitated by the Newport Polo Club's founder in the early 90's and thrive today as a vital equestrian and community recreational property and jewel of Portsmouth.  Read about its fascinating history!
