The Board of the Columbia Club of the Palm Beaches is pleased to announce our event of the season - the annual meeting and Polo Brunch!
This will be our fourth Annual event at the Wellington International Polo Club, and the event has been uniformly well received by our guests. Most consider the event to be the highlight of the club year, and we draw fellow Alumni from all of Florida! In this spirit of inclusion, we would like to expressly invite ALL Columbians and their guests to attend.
To remind you, or if you haven't been, the event begins with a brief Annual Meeting, wherein the business of the club is performed. We have many new board members this year, and we invite you to come meet them!
Then, the brunch commences. For those of you who have gone before, you know this brunch is simply - well, over the top.
Pictures from prior years are HERE. It is a fête the likes of which is only matched in a few places - and we're lucky enough to have access to it in the country estates west of Palm Beach. Bring an appetite, and don't even bother making dinner reservations.
Included in the price of your entrance are three libations - two drink tickets for a beverage of your choice, and the traditional champagne toast during the stomping of the divots.
And then there is the main event - a live polo match played in front of your seats.
We have moved the event into March, as the seating is necessarily outdoors. You can wear your best hat, if you're so inclined.
Don't take our word for it. Here are the photos from prior years.
The Polo is under new management since we've last been there, and has been made even more upscale. We have been told the food offerings are to be even more lavish than in past years. We will, as before, provide a gentle subsidy for our early-bird ticket purchasers as ticket prices have increased. Note that compared with regular admission, where "adult beverages" are at full cash bar, our ticket price is a much better deal. However, once the early bird is over, or we are at capacity, the subsidy will be withdrawn. Columbia Alumni only at the subsidized price, please!
Please be appraised that the event is rain or shine.
We truly hope that you are encouraged to come and spend the day with your fellow Columbia Alumni and their families in what is a truly special and fantastic event.
We'll see you at the Polo!
TICKETS NOW AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE VIA EVENTBRITE. EARLY BIRD ENDS FRIDAY MARCH 2nd.
