WHO: 2,000 guests
WHAT: The 34th Annual Family House Polo Match raised $220,000 to provide comfortable, affordable housing accommodations to patients, and their families, who are in Pittsburgh to receive medical treatment.
WHERE: Hartwood Acres
HIGHLIGHTS: Guests enjoyed a professional polo match; placed bids at a silent auction; and indulged in tastings of beer, wine, and spirits, as well as boutique shopping. There was no limit to the dining options at the event — on-site, there was a vast selection of food trucks, and guests created their own spreads of tailgate favorites. Following tradition, spectators were welcomed onto the polo field at halftime to “stomp the divots” and introduce themselves to the Saxonburg Hunt Hounds.
“The event was a day filled with celebrating Family House and those who support us! [It] is always a unique and wonderful opportunity to mix and mingle, party with friends, and enjoy the horses, activities, and fun fashion on display, all while raising funds to help keep our room rates low for the patients and families who need us most.” — Jennifer March, executive director of Family House
