These guys create really cool events and I love the idea that they are making money for a variety of charities without asking for donations. We all get to go to great events where the money goes to charity. It's a triple win!

Good that we are bringing on project management.

My husband and I went to both Polo en Blanc and The Polo Classic and were in awe of both events. We attend dozens of charity events each year and found these to be both unique and well managed. As an agency executive, I can say the marketing materials, website and on-site representation of sponsors were extraordinary and I am recommending the organization to several of our clients as a medium for product promotion and a splendid venue to entertain important clients. We walked the entire event and think it has something to offer everyone.

Our experience at the Polo Classis was excellent. The quality of the food was very good, the venue and the exciting day of Polo was exactly what our clients were looking for. The best part of the experiance was the frieindly staff and the fantastic causes they raised money for . They were very helpful and very welcoming and this is a can't miss event of the Minnesota Summer.
