The Villages Polo Booster Club is so pleased to be able to support well-deserving needs within The Villages Polo Club, as well as affiliated polo interests through direct and indirect contributions from our members and others who love to support our unique polo experience.
The monies to support the following charitable funds are a result of 50/50 raffle sales, events such as auctions and other Club money-raising activities, along with Booster and fan donations. We accept donations at the member desk at the stadium every Sunday.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR DONATIONS
THE VILLAGES POLO PLAYERS FUND
Even with safety rules in place, sometimes a player, a horse or a support person is injured. At those times our club comes to their aid and donates funds to help with the costs involved in recovery. We were also able to purchase a trailer to be used as an ambulance in the event of an injury to a horse.
BOOSTER BENEVOLENT FUND
This fund provides scholarships and aid for students interested in playing Polo, from grade school thru college. The proceeds are carefully distributed to key polo community needs including scholarships and equipment for those promising young people that may need financial assistance. They are our future players, let's watch them grow!
NICK JOHNSON CANCER FUND
Shirts with a sketch of a horse drawn by Nick Johnson have been for sale since fall 2019. There have been very many variations since that time, but what has not changed since 2019 is that its benefits are still dedicated to cancer. From that first sketch sold at our Derby auction in May of 2019, to our latest design with the Booster Club logo, nearly all profits go to cancer, specifically children's cancer. Nick says his Mom, who was a cancer victim, would love that.
