Only in the Lowcountry can a “sport of kings” meet a southern tradition.
The 24th annual Okatie Rotary Polo for Charity returns to the Rose Hill Plantation Oct. 22. The family-friendly event combines the competitive equestrian sport with fun, tailgating-style picnics, and a silent auction. Patron slots for private parties or general admission tickets are both available.
“We look forward to another great Polo for Charity event this year,” said Tony Leister, the Rotary Club of Okatie president. “It’s a fun afternoon for friends, neighbors and families to come together to support great causes in our community.”
The Okatie Rotary Polo for Charity has donated upwards of $250,000 to charities since 2010. This year’s recipients include the Foundation for Educational Excellence, which supports learning innovation in Beaufort County Schools, and other Rotary charities. Proceeds from the silent auction will benefit Moss Creek Marines and the Daufuskie Marsh Tacky Society.
