Aspen Valley Hospital Foundation is now entering its fifth year of operations and is expanding its donor opportunities to include a fun, unique, and elegant event – the Chukkers, Champagne & Caviar charity polo match on Sunday, August 13. In partnership with Aspen Valley Polo Club and Marc and Melissa Ganzi, AVHF is delighted to have this wonderful opportunity with the potential to raise significant support for Aspen Valley Hospital. This event promises to bring all the glitz and glamour a discriminating audience deserves, including a beautiful backdrop and some of the most well-known polo players in the world taking the field! The day will be a day to remember with an incredible who’s who list of spectators joining in the fun. The early interest for this event has been overwhelming and is at high risk of sellout. This is definitely a “must attend” summer event.

Melissa and Marc have set a new high standard. Not only have they elevated the Aspen Valley Polo Club to the fastestgrowing polo club in the country, but they also see the wonderful benefits of using this incredible outlet to collaborate with Aspen Valley Hospital Foundation to benefit important programs, services and facilities at the Hospital. They are welcoming the Hospital for the second year in a row to create this unique event.

Chukkers, Champagne & Caviar promises something for everyone, including a groom’s race to saddle and unsaddle their mounts; events for the kids; many chukkers of polo; a shuttle service, and terrific opportunities for  socializing with friends – both old and new. In addition to general admission tickets, there are VIP seating options which include fine dining at custom-designed themed tables, a table butler, premium champagne and caviar, as well  as luxury gift bags. The silent and live auctions will offer exquisite items donated by Aspen’s high-end businesses. The polo players will also be available for photo opportunities throughout the day.
