Denise Rich's Gabrielle's Angel Foundation Raffles Britney Spears Tickets on The Last Day of Bridgehampton Polo Club's Mercedes-Benz Polo Challenge
Bridgehampton, NY August 22, 2009. The last day of polo traditionally marks the near end of summer to Hamptonites. White Birch and Black Watch, two of the strongest teams in polo competed. White Birch was the victor. The last day is a bitter-sweet day for those who flock to polo to brave the sun and heat to socialize in the VIP tent. It is happy, because its a great party as always, it is sad because it is the last day. Some spectators watch polo, most come for the party.
Denise Rich's Gabrielle's Angel Foundation spiced up the event offering guests a chance to win tickets to see Britney Spears Circus Tour on August 26th at Madison Square Garden. 10 tickets were generously donated to help Denise raise funds and awareness for the foundation she formed in 1996 after her beloved daughter Gabrielle lost her battle to A.M.L. acute myelogenous lukemia. To learn more please go to http://www.gabriellesangels.org. The upcoming event for The Angel Ball will take place on October 20th at Cipriani Wall Street. Tickets can be purchased through Inez Weinstein 212-254-6677. A special thank you to the generous supporters who hosted Tailgate tent # 11 for Gabrielle's Angels who wish to remain anonymous.
When the match was over guests flocked to the field to be photographed with Black Watch's celebrity polo player Nacho Figueras. People seemed to linger longer than usual not wanting the day or the season to end.
