Imagine Summer at the Santa Barbara Polo and Racquet Club…
It’s June 30th and you’re high above in a hot air balloon looking down on
the The Mikimoto Polo Challenge.
Benefiting the Polo Training Center Santa Barbara, this star-studded event
will feature polo, excellent local cuisine, hot air balloons and of course
Mikimoto’s fine pearl jewelry.
Because you’ve chosen to be a VIP guest in the “Polo Balloon”, lunch will
be provided through the Battle of the Chefs.
Back on land, Executive Chef Alesandro Cartumini from Biltmore Four
Seasons, Executive Chef David Reardon from Bacara Resort & Spa, and
Executive Chef Jason Tuley from Anchor WoodFire will choose a
dish to demonstrate and then serve. Your votes will determine the winning
Chef and his crew!
After lunch, attendees will be treated to the Mikimoto Polo Challenge: A
David versus Goliath Polo Match.
Hoffman International Properties rated at 30 Goals will play the Northern Trust
10-goal team. With 20 goals on the board to start for Northern
Trust, it’s up to them to keep the lead, or be defeated by Hoffman's team.
At the traditional Half-Time Divot Stomp, Lana Marme, top fashion retailer
in Montecito, will award a $500 gift certificate to the winning Divot Diva.
Just incase this day of excess isn’t enough, The Auto Gallery will
showcase their stable of luxury automobiles ranging from Lamborghini to
McLaren to Ferrari to Maserati.
