2015 BONNIE BRAE POLO CLASSIC SCHEDULED FOR JUNE 13
Make reservations now to feel like royalty enjoying upscale entertainment for the price of picnic lunch - or entertain clients or employees while engaging in friendly competition vying for the best hat, most original, elegant or best themed tent or best gourmet presentation. The Bonnie Brae Polo Classic provides an opportunity to do it all. Jim and Laura McDevitt are once again graciously opening their Fieldview Farm in Pittstown, NJ (located off Route 78 at exit 15) on June 13th (wet field condition date –June 14th) to raise funds and awareness for Bonnie Brae. Bonnie Brae is a private, nonprofit accredited residential treatment and special education center serving boys, 8-17, who hail from New Jersey. The center strives to be “a haven where young men reclaim their potential through education and therapy.”
More than 3,000 “Kings and Queens” are expected to be on hand to watch the eleventh anniversary polo match. Gates will open at NOON for tailgating. Pre-match activities start at 12:30 pm with the match beginning at 2:00 p.m. Opening and half-time ceremonies will feature classic cars and classic equestrian entertainment as well as a performance by Bonnie Brae’s own Knights Precision Drum Corp who have performed for President Obama at his inaugural parade. A raffle drawing for a choice of over 100 trip destinations will be held at the end of the match at approximately 5:00 p.m., followed by an awards ceremony and champagne toast to the teams.
Diamond and Platinum Horseshoe Sponsors will enjoy entrance to the VIP Champagne Tent listening to live jazz and noshing on mouthwatering hors d’oeuvres and sparkling wines, compliments of Raritan Liquors and Peapack Fine Wines. Golden and Silver Horseshoe Patrons provide spectacular tailgate displays. General Admission guests may bring their own picnic baskets and beverages, however QFC will be on hand in the Polo Cuisine Tent to serve up a delicious selection of a la carte items.
