Proceeds from the Sports Day Polo Auction to support breast cancer patients

The annual Ladies’ Polo Day, which was held at the Al Habtoor Polo and Equestrian Club and Resort’s stadiums, yesterday, Saturday, turned into a wonderful festival in which everyone participated in various accompanying events, in addition to two polo matches for women and men. Breastfeeding is an annual tradition during which all club-goers and polo lovers are invited to donate. 

Mohammed Al Habtoor, President of the Emirates Polo Federation, confirmed that the Al Habtoor Group is keen every year to hold this charitable day out of its societal duty in support of breast cancer patients, wishing them all a speedy recovery, and thanked those who contributed to the success of this festival to achieve the goals for which it was held.
