On August 11, 2017, Argentine groom Bastian “Basti” Fernandez fell from a polo horse and sustained major injuries to his fifth cervical vertebra while working in Switzerland. In his twenties, Basti is now a quadriplegic and despite Swiss accident insurance, his full costs are not covered.
Adolfo and Poroto Cambiaso joined with Michael Husted of Performance Polo and the Le Page family of Polo Park Zürich to organize a fundraiser to help cover some of Basti’s disability costs and reintegration. By purchasing one or more tickets for CHF (Swiss Franc) 50 each (approximate $55 USD), you will be entered into a drawing to win a polo helmet designed and signed by Adolfo Cambiaso and his son.

The draw will be made by Basti himself on Sunday, August 16, 2020, at Polo Park Zürich during the Swiss medium goal tournament and will be on televised by Prensa Polo and on Polo Park Zürich’s Instagram feed. All ticket sales will go directly to Basti, without any deductions or admin fees.
