Benefit Polo Match
The National Sporting Library & Museum hosted the Benefit Polo Match and Luncheon on Sept. 15, a spectacular day at the Virginia International Polo Club in Upperville. This popular event was expanded to include a number of activities celebrating country life. B. Tim and Michelle Brookshire served as event chairmen, Jacqueline Mars as honorary chairman and Ann Nitze as host committee chair.
The festive fund-raiser included an elegant luncheon under the tent catered by Occasions, a Ladies Hat Contest and an exciting NSLM Polo Cup match. Event planning was facilitated by the Webster Group, Inc., of Washington, D.C. The afternoon also featured a performance by the Washington Scottish Pipe Band and a parade of the Piedmont Fox Hounds. Excitement prevailed on both sides of the field with several carloads of people tailgating during the game.
