Polo With A Purpose


Join us for “polo with a purpose” and support the rescued equines at West Place Animal Sanctuary.

The Newport International Polo Series is once again hosting its annual All Charity Day and you’re invited! This fundraising event will help us care for our equine rescues, Gabby & Gracie (miniature horses) and Timothy & Charles (donkeys). All four rescues came to our sanctuary last year, and we are working to increase their barn space before winter. When you purchase tickets through West Place, 100% of your ticket purchase and/or donation will help us provide them with the additional room they require, and will allow us to continue helping animals in need.

Experience championship polo from the reserved West Place chalet, which offers cover from the weather and plenty of green space to watch the match. Bring a blanket or chair along with your favorite summertime cocktail and West Place will provide complimentary hors d'oeuvres. Dress is "Newport Casual Chic" so pick an outfit that matches the colorful and exciting action of Newport Polo!

All proceeds from tickets purchased through westplace.org/polo benefit West Place Animal Sanctuary, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in Tiverton, RI.
