Guests Pony Up Funds for Good Cause in Pacific Palisades – Pacific Palisades Real Estate
Safety Harbor Kids, a Malibu-based nonprofit that enriches the lives of orphans, foster and homeless children, held its fourth annual polo fundraiser Saturday at Will Rogers State Historic Park.
Founder John Williams and his wife, Petrie, chose the venue because they love watching polo.
“I thought what better place to have an event than at a polo match,” Petrie Williams said. “It’s something we love to do anyway.”
Guests arrived in style, the men in light colored suits and the women wearing colorful dresses and hats reminiscent of Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman—after the makeover.
In addition to the opportunity to watch a polo match between Santa Monica and Malibu, the fundraiser included a silent auction, dinner and wine tasting.
“Every single item here has been donated, from the food from Taste at the Palisades, to the tables, chairs and umbrellas from the Universal Studios props department, and the wine from Fotinos Brothers Winery,” Petrie Williams said.
Safety Harbor Kids is a community-supported charity, according to John Williams. The organization serves more than 2,000 homeless and foster children.
