Malibu nonprofit, Safety Harbor Kids, partnering with luxury electric car company, Tesla Motors, is raising funds for a worthy cause – education for American orphans, foster and homeless children.
The 7th Annual Safety Harbor Kids Polo Fundraiser will be held on September 7th from 1-5pm, in Pacific Palisades, CA.
With the British American Business Council and Brits in LA taking part, the event will feature appetizers, lunch, wine tasting, polo matches, open bar, surprise entertainment, a string quartet and vocal performances as well as gift bags and a “best hat” contest. Tesla, whose model S was voted Motor Trend Car of the Year will have a car on display.
The venue, the Will Rogers Polo Club, offers breathtaking views from the mountains to the sea, and has been the filming location of many movies including Star Trek IV (William Shatner 1986) and Pretty Woman (Julia Roberts and Richard Gere, 1990). Old Hollywood royalty including Clark Gable, Joan Crawford, Walt Disney, and Gary Cooper also frequented the polo estate formerly owned by 1930’s entertainer Will Rogers.
Sponsored by Segno Marketing, Panavision, Elite Island Resorts and The Gold Hedge, red carpet photos will begin at 1pm with polo starting at 2pm. Last year’s attendees included John Savage (Deer Hunter, 1978), Eric Roberts (Dark Knight, 2008) and the beloved Michael Clarke Duncan (Green Mile, 1999). Past supporters also include Reese Witherspoon, Jeremy Piven, Mel Gibson and Jim Belushi.
