Newport Polo announced today that they will partner with SAVE THE BAY to support its Coastal Cleanup Campaign by offering free Adult Admission to September polo matches to Coastal Cleanup volunteers.
Save The Bay is seeking assistance from residents across Rhode Island as it resumes its annual role as organizer of the state’s participation in the International Coastal Cleanup effort this fall.
The International Coastal Cleanup is the world’s largest volunteer effort for our ocean. People all over the world remove trash from the shores and document what they find. The data is published in an annual report on marine debris by the Ocean Conservancy. The “big day” is Saturday, September 21, 2019 with alternate dates available throughout September & October.
Individuals interested in participating in an ICC cleanup can explore all opportunities and register at http://bit.ly/2yNi0Fz. To earn free polo match tickets, volunteers must redeem a Service Hour Letter at the entry gates to the polo grounds on game day, which Cleanup Leaders provide to volunteers upon request.
“The players savor every last chukker as the season comes to a close,” comments home team captain, Dan Keating in a statement. “Everyone is at peak fitness from a highly competitive summer and the weather forecast shows ideal conditions for the match this Saturday.”
Remaining polo matches include the annual New England Pro-Am, sure to excite this Saturday, Sept. 21, 2019 at the Newport International Polo Series XXVIII, presented by Brahmin. The region’s polo professionals and top amateur players will go head to head in an action-packed match.
On Saturday, Sept. 28, the Battle of Sexes will unfold in the Turkish Airlines Finals, followed by a Grand Prize Drawing for a trip for two anywhere in the world.
Tickets to the polo match and associated events are available online at www.nptpolo.com.
