On Sunday, November 15, the Colleton Center and the Limehouse family will host the seventh annual Polo for the Point. The benefit polo match will be held at the Limehouse Polo Grounds, Highway 15 N, 7201 Jefferies Highway, approximately seven miles north of Walterboro. Proceeds will benefit The Colleton Center and be used to continue the preservation and restoration of the 700-seat performing arts auditorium.
A tailgating event, Polo for the Point is open to the public.
Buck Limehouse says the family always enjoys hosting this unique event. “Polo for the Point promotes a positive image for Walterboro and Colleton County. This serves as an important fundraiser for the Hampton Street Auditorium at the Center, which benefits all citizens. This year, there will be a Round Robin tournament, three teams playing, bringing in players from out of state to participate. All of the players donate their time for a day of fun for the entire area. We always appreciate the support the community and the sponsors show for Polo for the Point,” he said.
The gates will open at 12 noon, with activities beginning at 1 p.m. The matches will be held at 2 p.m. Activities during the day will also include best tailgate and best hat contests, pony rides for children, a parachuting exhibition and the traditional stomping of the divots.
Several levels of sponsorships, to include preferred parking space, tickets and advertising in the program, are available. General admission for adults is $10 in advance and $15 at the gate, and for children under 12, $5 in advance or at the gate.
Tickets are available in Walterboro at Griffin Jewelers, the Artisans Center, It’s Retail Therapy and The Colleton Center (494 Hampton St), or at the gate on November 15.
The Colleton Center is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide for the preservation and renovation of the historic Hampton Street Elementary School and for the development of an arts and civic center. Though the Colleton Center will be receiving funding for auditorium renovations through the Capital Project Sales Tax Initiative, the Center must continue to raise money for operations, building upkeep, and future, additional restoration needs.
