Combining several of our favorite things – sport, shopping, savory sampling – the 6th Annual Polo For The Planet takes place Saturday, June 7, in Oak Point. Casual and family-friendly, the event serves to raise awareness of sustainable living here in North Texas.
Gates open at 5 p.m. on the big day at the Prestonwood Polo & Country Club, just about 40 minutes north of downtown Dallas. Picnics and leashed dogs are welcome, and the sporting fun kicks off with a live broadcast of the Belmont Stakes at 5:30 p.m. Polo matches start at 5:45 p.m., and will include the USPA National Youth Tournament feature match. Throughout the evening, vendors will highlight products and services with eco-friendly missions.
Says Dena Miller, founder of the Ladies Polo Auxiliary of Texas, “My husband Vaughn and I enjoy using this platform for worthy causes, and environmental education for our community rates high among our priorities.” Miller is joined by co-chairs Britt Harless, founder of the National Go Solar Foundation, jewelry designer Joanne Taylor, and Judith Aronson, independent U.S. and International Projects Director.
The foursome has gathered a diverse group of sponsors, offering goods for sale, education, and edibles. They include Earthkind Homegoods, The Mellow Mushroom, Miss Earth Dallas, Texas Trees Foundation, Dallas Soap Company (below, right), and Stella Thomas Designs (below, left). Many more are also in store, and the first 100 families to arrive will receive exclusive gift bags filled with product samples and special offers.
