Polo for Life Sets Date for 9th Annual Polo for a Purpose

Polo for a Purpose, the signature fundraising event for Polo for Life, is one of the most anticipated events of the season and the organization is thrilled to announce the date has been set for March 1, 2024!


This year’s event will transport guests to Hawaii for a special luau, live entertainment, a fabulous cocktail reception, performances, and the always electrifying polo match. While there will be no shortage of fun, the focus remains on raising much needed monies to directly support South Florida families fighting pediatric cancer.


Founded by Brandon Phillips, a pediatric cancer survivor and professional equestrian athlete, Polo for Life has raised millions of dollars to support cancer patients and their families from diagnosis to treatment. Funds from the 2024 event will benefit Pediatric Oncology Support Team (P.O.S.T.), Kids Cancer Foundation, and Baptist Health Foundation to provide financial assistance so families can remain in their homes, have food to eat, and pay for medication needs.


Phillips will serve as Honorary Chair of this event, with Christine Aylward, Rob Gray, Rita Reik and PJ Rizvi.

Gates for the event open at 3:00 p.m. with the polo match beginning at 4:30 p.m. Sponsorship opportunities are still available and can be found here. Individual tickets and tables of eight can also be purchased online by visiting https://www.poloforlife.org or calling 917-838-2074.


About Polo for Life:

Polo for Life was founded by Brandon Phillips, a professional polo player who has won many of the sport’s most prestigious tournaments. However, winning tournaments is not the biggest victory he has achieved–surviving stage 4 non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is. Phillips was just 14 years old when diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and given a prognosis of six weeks to live. He endured five grueling months of intensive chemotherapy sessions yet never lost his spirit nor accepted death as an option. He beat the odds, went into remission, and vowed to dedicate his life to polo and his desire to help families facing the dreadful challenge of surviving childhood cancers. Polo for Life, Inc. raises money to help pediatric cancer patients and their families from diagnosis and treatment to survivorship and long-term follow-up. By partnering with South Florida organizations, Polo for Life provides financial assistance so families can remain in their homes, be confident they will have food to survive, and overcome financial hardships that come with a pediatric cancer diagnosis. It has donated more than $2.2 million since its founding.
