The Gala has been called “the Academy Awards of Polo” attracting its superstars from around the world and with this amazing group of Hall of Fame honorees, reservations are at an all-time high. But there is still room to join us to celebrate their accomplishments and contributions to the sport of polo and welcome them to the Hall of Fame.

The Grand Reception begins at 6:30 and guests will be greeted with passed hors d’oeuvres and free flowing champagne at the Korbel Bubbles Bar. Other wine and cocktails will also be served for the reception and dinner courtesy of Lipman Brothers LLC, Brown Forman, Bacardi USA, Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Korbel, and introducing new sponsor Line 39 Wine.  

Immediately following the reception is a chic seated dinner sponsored by main Gala Sponsors Marc and Melissa Ganzi and Grand Champions Polo Club and the evening’s entertainment is sponsored by Wayne and Pamela Garrison. As a special gift, guests will also be given a copy of “POLOART – the 2017 Polo Season by Melinda Brewer,” a commemorative book of the past year’s star polo ponies captured in her artwork and photographs. This collectible book is a new Museum fund-raising project made possible with underwriting from the Central New York Community FoundationMaureen Brennan and the Brennan Family Foundation as title sponsors; and additional sponsorship support from Gillian Johnston and the Tucker Foundation

Photographers Alex Pacheco, and Krystalzaskey Photography, and Frederic Roy of the Morning Line and Chukker TV are also sponsors/donors of their services to our event and for our exhibits during the year. We are grateful to all our sponsors and ask you to please support them whenever you can!
