June 2012 was yet another successful year for the life saving efforts of the Heart & Stroke Foundation, as well as the sport of polo, as the Toronto Polo Club hosted the 33rd annual PACE Polo for Heart charity event. Andrew Rivkin is a tremendous supporter of this, and many other polo events in which team Rivkin Asset Management can participate and contribute to a great cause. Team RAM sponsors the Rivendell Polo Team at the Polo for Heart event in order to raise funds for various Canadian charities. This past June $150,000 was raised for Heart & Stroke related charities, and proceeds went to the Heart & Stroke Foundation and the Cardiac Care Centre at Southlake Regional Health Centre. Team RAM contributes to a number of other charitable organizations as well, such as the annual Polo for Cancer tournament held in Ontario, which helps raise funds for cancer patients.
Polo For Heart has been the most successful, and is the longest running, charity hosted by the Toronto Polo Club. For more than three decades, the three day annual event delivers an exiting combination of polo competition, a colorful backdrop of corporate tents and tables, general public picnic areas, boutiques, live entertainment and fabulous half-time shows. The whole family can enjoy an abundance of entertainment both on and off the field, and most importantly, Polo For Heart has raised millions of dollars for the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Ontario. The weekend summer outing entertains thousands of guests with world-class international polo competition, so come out and join team Rivkin Asset Management and watch players from around the world play polo for a cause June 14-16 and have a blast at Polo For Heart 2013! The general public are welcome to come out and support these great causes, and can either tailgate or buy a reserved table or corporate tent. There really is no better way to spend a summer afternoon in the country, and it’s all for a great cause!
Polo for Health is another annual polo charity event which takes place in August at the Upper Canada Polo Fields near Alliston. The refreshing Autumn setting is the perfect place to play polo for a great cause. The event raises money each year for Stevenson Memorial Hospital and over the past eight years the Rotary Club of Alliston and the Toronto Polo Club have worked together to raise nearly a quarter million dollars for the Stevenson Memorial Hospital Foundation.
