Celebrity Bartending Challenge to raise funds for YMCA’s Polo with Pedro
A Celebrity Bartending Challenge to benefit the YMCA of the Palm Beaches will take place on February 11 from 7:00 – 10:00 p.m at the White Horse Tavern in Wellington,Florida. Polo players, Nacho Figueras, Marc Ganzi, Kris Kampsen and Nick Roldan will compete against women equestrians Marley Goodman, Maralyn Little, Maria Rivas, Maria Schaub and Sandy Van Dyke to see who can raise the most money for the YMCA of the Palm Beaches. All tips and 50% of the evening’s proceeds will go directly to the YMCA of the Palm Beaches’ Polo with Pedro Brunch. This challenge is to raise awareness for the sixth annual Polo with Pedro Brunch on February 28th.
Polo with Pedro has become an annual fundraiser at the International Polo Club Palm Beach where friends old and new gather to support the YMCA. Polo with Pedro is in its sixth year of celebrating the life of Pedro Morrison and his commitment to the mission of the YMCA of the Palm Beaches. Approximately 400 guests from Palm Beach to Wellington are expected to attend by honoring Pedro’s memory during the finals of the CV Whitney Cup. The event brings together the area’s finest philanthropists and sports enthusiasts for a cause that no one can deny is truly deserving; building Strong Kids, Strong Families and Strong Communities!
“At the YMCA of the Palm Beaches, we see the need in our community growing every day. I am very proud that such a great group of community members have come together to raise funds that will support our YMCA programs and allow us to provide much needed financial assistance to our members,” said Russell Martin, CEO/President of the YMCA of the Palm Beaches.
