Celebrating British Polo Day in Los Angeles

We attended as a guest


We recently attended a series of events for British Polo Day here in Los Angeles and it was wonderful! Now keep in mind that we being natives of California and having never attended a polo event before and yes, were completely swept off our feet. Rubbing elbows with a few members of royalty, sipping whiskey from Royal Salute and seeing fundraising at it’s finest. Doesn’t everyone get to do that on a weekday evening?


British Polo Days is an event that happens yearly; with a series of locations throughout the world. A few places these events are happening this year are Great Britain, China, Singapore, Marrakesh and most recently Los Angeles. The inaugural British Polo Day USA event was held in 2014 in Los Angeles and returned again this year.


While honoring traditions, showcasing luxury and building relationships this event brings together individuals who help raise awareness and monies for local charities; UK Stem Cell Research and Home Boy Industries. Home Boy Industries is one the largest gang intervention, rehabilitation and re-entry programs in the United States. Bravo to helping our world become a better place!


The London Hotel was our first event via the rooftop, where after the sun had set, with sweeping views of city lights sparkled around us we were first introduced to British Polo Days. Surrounded by people from across the oceans and local faces as we toasted, sipped champagne and indulged in some delicious petite desserts. They do know how to throw a soiree!


On this evening and the days to follow we found we were surrounded by some truly amazing individuals. Being witnesses to a demonstration of such kindness and care for the well being of others; it really breaks opens your heart. We love people who are kind to the core and do good for this world! All of us have the ability to give whether large or small; it can be with time, monetary, education, listening or perhaps, a simple smile. One never knows until the moment is upon us.

Perhaps you’ll wish to mark your calendar for next year’s event; branch out to help these good causes and watch the ponies at the British Polo Day’s in 2016. Guessing by the monies raised this year, we’re sure they’ll be back and hope for years to follow.
