Thanks to all of you who attended the Bonnie Brae Polo Classic at the Hillsborough Country Club last Saturday. Bonnie Brae is a residential school and therapeutic community for New Jersey boys in crisis ages 8-21, educating and mentoring them to go on to full and vibrant lives. It is a cause we are proud to support.
This is an annual event and we'll be sure to be there next year to offer our valued clients complimentary tickets to this amazing event. Please let us know if you'd like to be on the list to get notifications for next year. Meanwhile, enjoy the pictures below as they show the match unfolding.
The day was gorgeous - after the wind died down and the sun came out - and the action was intense. The Weidel and Volvo polo teams played an intense 4 "chucker" match with Volvo winning 7 to 4. Having never attended a polo match before, we were all amazed at the speed and dexterity of these majestic horses. Of course, it takes some master ridership as well and we saw that in abundance.
All the guests enjoyed our hospitality tent where wine and cosmos flowed freely and Suzanne and Dawn's homemade petite tastings were sampled with gusto.
Fanfare, anthems, pomp and circumstance abound, starting with the Bonnie Brae Drummers.
As the official jeweler for the "look of polo" this year, we chose casual-chic with both boldness and flair. Our philosophy is that important jewelry that is perfectly designed and executed is always appropriate, whether the event is casual or dressy. We say, "Just wear it" when it comes to fine jewelry!
The match was exciting and the guests take part in several polo traditions including the running of the hounds and the stomping of the divots during half time.
We'll be back again next year to support this worthy cause. We'll make sure you receive complementary tickets for this exciting and family fun event.
