This Saturday, the polo ponies of Portsmouth will make their final appearance before bidding adieu to another amazing season. Tailgaters, as always, are welcome to set up their spread well before the 4 p.m. match start, and, despite summer’s official last day tomorrow, madras and Lilly are expected to make a distinguished presence Saturday.
While it’s a delight mixing mojitos and tapas or planning an impressive wine and cheese pairing, consider letting someone else play host for the afternoon, all for a good cause. Earlier this summer, Newport Stylephile arranged a clothing drive for the Rhode Island chapter of Dress for Success, the national non-profit that provides interview suits, confidence boosts, and career development to low-income women. Saturday, local supporters of the organization will be hosting a polo tailgate party fundraiser. Your $20 ticket includes the match (and parking), catering by Glorious Affairs, and wine and beer donated by local vendors and vineyards, plus a raffle. All proceeds go to Dress for Success RI, and tickets MUST be purchased in advance to benefit the charity. Call 401-864-4657 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for tickets.
