Sat. May 7: Polo on the Lawn at Prestonwood Polo & Country Club

Bring the family and join us on Saturday, May 7 for Polo on the Lawn

The 15th annual Polo on the Lawn is a Kentucky Derby-themed event at the Prestonwood Polo & Country Club and includes a fun-filled afternoon of polo with fast-paced action, thoroughbred beauties, champagne divot stomping and side-line socializing.

Guests dress for the derby and watch the Derby LIVE on flat screens in the Polo Pavilion. Food is available for purchase or guests bring a picnic basket of their own to enjoy while watching the USPA Polo Match. The fun continues with silent auctions, music and dancing. Prizes are awarded for the “Best Dressed” Lady, Gentleman, Couple and Child, as well as Best Picnic, Best Tailgate and Best Hat. The event goal is to introduce the general public to the Sport of Kings while raising funds and awareness for worthwhile charities in North Texas.

Event chairs are Dena Miller and Jessica Castillo.

Polo on the Lawn happens every spring on the first Saturday in May in conjunction with the Kentucky Derby and has raised over $500,000 for local charities through the Prestonwood Polo Foundation Inc., a 501(3) c nonprofit organization. The 2016 beneficiary is Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and the Prestonwood Polo Club Miss Texas Pageant Prelims.
