Polo on the Lawn, A Family-Friendly Fundraiser

Polo fans gathered at Prestonwood Polo and Country Club on Saturday, May 4th for a fun-filled, family-friendly Kentucky Derby-themed afternoon of fast-paced action, thoroughbred beauties, and champagne divot stomping at the 12th Annual Polo on the Lawn event.
The event included sideline socializing during the USPA Sanctioned Henry S. Miller Cup polo match and live broadcast of The Kentucky Derby in the pavilion. The fun continued with music and dancing, silent auction, and guests strutting the runway in their Derby fashions.

Celebrity judges, lifestyle guru Steve Kemble, WFAA “Daybreak” host Ron Corning and HGTV Design Star’s Hilari Younger, awarded prizes for Best Dressed, Best Hat, Best Picnic, and Best Tailgate.  There was fun for the entire family with bounce houses, face painting and carnival games.
