PACE Polo for Heart fundraiser
The thunderous sound of hooves accompanied renowned polo player and Ralph Lauren model Nacho Figueras as he galloped with the Maharaj of Jaipur and the Royal Indian Polo Team at the 2011 PACE Polo for Heart fundraiser. From June 17 – 19, 2011, players of the ‘Sport of Kings’ rode side-by-side, raising money and awareness for the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario and Southlake Regional Health Centre’s cardiac care unit. With two international polo matches a day, the event generated $100,000 for each charity.
