Join us for polo plus a sanctuary tour!
The Newport International Polo Series is once again hosting its annual All Charity Day Benefit Match. This year, West Place is adding some new and exciting elements to this summer fundraiser, just for you!
Think of it as polo+. With the purchase of your polo ticket through West Place, you will:
gain access to the reserved West Place chalet to experience a classic 6-chukker match on Sunday, July 16
enjoy complimentary hors d'oeuvres and beverages
be invited to a private group tour of West Place Animal Sanctuary on Saturday, July 15
be automatically entered into a raffle for a Couples Tour at West Place*
support the equine and farm animal rescues at West Place
This annual fundraising event gives you an opportunity to enjoy an afternoon of fun at the polo grounds AND visit West Place Animal Sanctuary -- all in the same weekend!
*Additional raffle tickets are $10 each, and may be purchased at the polo match or added on to your ticket purchase as an additional donation.
When you purchase tickets through West Place, 100% of your ticket purchase and/or donation will help us continue to provide lifelong care to our equine and farm animal rescues.
On Sunday, July 16, experience a classic 6-chukkar polo match from the reserved West Place chalet, which offers cover from the weather and plenty of green space to watch the match. Bring a blanket or chair along with your favorite summertime cocktail and West Place will provide complimentary hors d'oeuvres. Dress is "Newport Casual Chic" so pick an outfit that matches the colorful and exciting action of Newport Polo!
Gates open at 3pm and the 6-chukker match begins at 5pm and will last approximately 2 hours. As the All Charity Day name implies, all proceeds from ticket sales go to West Place Animal Sanctuary when they are purchased through our website.
But wait, there's more!
Prior to polo, you are invited to a private group tour of West Place Animal Sanctuary on Saturday, July 15 at 10am sharp. Meet the amazing farm animal rescues during an interactive and educational guided tour of the 8-acre property in Tiverton.
Additionally, your polo ticket will grant you automatic entry into a raffle for a Couples Tour at West Place. Came back to enjoy a full tour, hands-on animal activity, and complimentary beer and wine, or gift the Couples Tour to a pair of animal lovers who would enjoy the sanctuary.
It's all included in your ticket!
Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you at the polo grounds and at the sanctuary!

West Place Animal Sanctuary is not an animal rights activist organization. We are a 501(c)(3) animal welfare organization focused on rescuing farm animals from cases of abuse, neglect, and cruelty. Polo horses are generally very well cared for and their performance on the pitch is relatively low-impact (no jumping or over-bending). The risk of injury is minimal due to tendon boots and other preventative measures. The Humane Society of the United States has no records of cruelty or abuse of polo horses. As a small nonprofit experiencing growing demand for our services, West Place is grateful for the opportunity to raise much-needed funds and connect with our neighbors on Aquidneck Island.
