Chukkers for Children, an inaugural polo benefit for Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital, was held at the Cleveland Metroparks Polo Field.
The event was sponsored by many, including Fred Baker of Fred Baker Audi and Scott Fisher of the eponymous salon in Chagrin Falls who jumped at the chance to combine his passion for polo with his heartfelt thanks to the hospital for its care of his son Shane, now eight years old. In a freak tractor accident in 2004, Shane nearly lost his left foot and after two surgeries at Metro Hospital, had a full recovery under the care of Dr. Daniel Cooperman at Rainbow. His son, said Scott, “now runs like the wind!”
More than 150 people enjoyed box lunches prepared by Elan Catering before the match between Team Audi and Sun Dairy Farm from Buffalo, N.Y. RB&C Circle of Friends Director Sharon Klonowski welcomed everyone before Jack Dill announced the teams’ players. It was exciting to witness the athleticism of players astride 1,200 pound horses (they used to be called ponies) as they executed shots with their mallets. Team Audi won 10 to 5 and Best Playing Pony Award was won by Tulsa, a six-year-old thoroughbred owned by Slade Sharpsteen of Buffalo.
Intermission entertainment included a performance by the award-winning Jordan Canter Dance Studio and a fashion show presented by Sanity in Chagrin Falls. STORY AND PHOTOGRAPHS BY KATHRYN RIDDLE
