Support Aspen Valley Hospital at Summer Polo Event
Deborah Breen, President & CEO
Aspen Valley Hospital Foundation
The annual “Chukkers, Champagne & Caviar” summer polo event to benefit Aspen Valley Hospital Foundation (AVHF) is set for Sunday, August 12 from 10:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
AVHF is delighted to have this wonderful opportunity to raise significant support for Aspen Valley Hospital, in partnership with Aspen Valley Polo Club and Melissa and Marc Ganzi. This event promises to bring glitz and glamour, with an incredible backdrop and the chance to experience the excitement of polo with some of the best and most well-known players in the world taking the field! The day will be memorable with an incredible “who’s who” list of spectators joining in the fun.
The early interest for this event has been overwhelming and with last year’s event selling out early, AVHF encourages you to purchase tables or tickets early! This is an important friend-raiser and fundraiser, and we are hoping to top last year’s $400,000 raised through this event.
Hosts Melissa and Marc Ganzi have elevated the Aspen Valley Polo Club to the fastest growing polo club in the country. AVHF is fortunate the Ganzis have chosen to use their impeccable polo facility to support Aspen Valley Hospital.
“Chukkers, Champagne & Caviar” promises something for everyone, including two polo matches, vendors featuring luxury items, and terrific opportunities for socializing with friends – both old and new. Silent and live auctions will offer exquisite items and experiences donated by local Aspen businesses, and polo players will be available for photo opportunities throughout the day. Of course, endless champagne and caviar will complement other culinary delights presented by Caribou Club. Tickets to the event include complimentary shuttle service to and from Aspen.
This year, proceeds will support important technology, facilities and services at AVH.
This is sure to be the “must attend” event of the year. General admission tickets are $300. A limited number of individual VIP tickets and tables are also available at various levels. For more information, please contact AVH Foundation at 970.544.1302, or visit AVHFPOLO.gesture.com.
