The Argentine Bicentennial Polo Match
By Alex Webbe
There is probably no better known face in polo than that of Black Watch 6-goaler Nacho Figueras. The charismatic face of Ralph Laurenâ€™s entire line of Polo fragrances.
From the playing fields of Argentina to the reaches of the Far East, Nacho Figueras has appeared on behalf of charities that have served to benefit the peoples of a diverse number of countries, the most publicized of which might have been his appearance in the annual Veuve Clicquot Manhattan Polo Classic,
an event that is recorded to have raised nearly $400,000 for Prince Harryâ€™s charity, Sentebale. The charity raises funds in support of African orphans in Lesotho.
On Sunday, August 1, Nacho Figueras will serve as the Honorary Host and Team Captain for The Argentine Bicentennial Polo Match that will benefit Cruzada Argentina and HelpArgentina.
The 4 pm polo match will take place at The Meadowbrook Polo club, 1 Polo Drive, Old Westbury, New York. (Go to www.helpargentina.org/en/poloevent) for a map and directions.
