Outbound: The 5th Annual Knox Memorial Cup

It’s not every day that we get invited to spend an afternoon watching polo and stomping divots, unless perhaps you’re a player, or an avid enthusiast. For most people, polo is something that can occasionally be viewed on TV, or read about in magazines. In WNY, the game of polo is a revered sport, which, believe it or not, is more readily accessible than one might think.

Take, for example, the Knox Memorial Cup. This thrilling polo adventure is coming up on Saturday, July 21 at 11am. The Greater Buffalo community is invited to attend an afternoon of opulent proportions, by participating in the following activities:

  • Veuve Cliquot champagne brunch by Oliver’s
  • Live auction, silent auction
  • Divot stomp
  • Polo match at Knox Polo Field

The Stables at Knox has teamed up with Buffalo Polo Club to offer these matches, which are sanctioned by the United States Polo Association.

Proceeds from this year’s Knox Memorial Cup, hosted by The Stables at Knox, Inc., will benefit therapeutic riding programs for chronically ill children. The Children’s Hospital of Buffalo Foundation is supporting the John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital to ensure that chronically ill children will have continued access to these proven programs.

The annual Knox Memorial Cup is a great way to ‘get out of dodge’, to catch some fast paced, larger than life polo, at the historic setting of Knox Farm State Park.
