A bright summer day was the stage for the eleventh annual Polo for Children fundraiser at the Greenwich Polo Club. The event was held to support the Hole In the Wall Gang Camp, which was founded by actor and philanthropist Paul Newman and continues to be a playtime oasis for children stricken with serious illnesses. More than 250 donors rubbed elbows with celebrity guests Jim Naughton and Jane Curtin.
Attendees savored a gourmet luncheon and bid on envy-inspiring auction items, including a trip to the Galápagos Islands and a New York Jets VIP package. This was an event for all ages, as the children enjoyed a picnic, arts and crafts, and games in their own tent.
The fun-filled day raised over $825,000 to support camp programs. holeinthewallgang.org
