Polo BenefitAugust 18th

Back by popular demand, the 2024 Wounded Veterans Polo Benefit will be Sunday, August 18th! 
at the beautiful Wine Country Polo Club, Oakmont, Santa Rosa, CA

Polo – Wine Tasting – Silent Auction – Ladies Hat Contest– Divot Stomp– Gourmet Lunch Under the Trees - Riata Ranch Cowgirls Display Team and more!​



Leading Californian and international polo players in THREE spectacular polo games!


Premier Ticket Holders will enjoy a gourmet buffet lunch on the tree-covered bank overlooking the polo field.
Fine wines will be served and others available for tasting, courtesy of several leading North Bay wineries.

Intermission will feature the traditional “Chandon Divot Stomp” -- a chance for spectators to mingle on the field, sampling Chandon sparkling wine while performing light duty in smoothing the divots kicked up by the horses.  


The internationally acclaimed Riata Ranch Cowboy Girls will return this year to perform acrobatic stunts on and off horseback as well as providing a trick roping display during the exciting halftime show. These young women have performed for Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle as part of her Jubilee Pageant.  

A silent auction throughout the day offers amazing items for spectators to bid on. All proceeds of course support our veterans.


The event will conclude with the awards ceremony, and a final chance for pictures with the winning teams.
