All of us here at Krol Media are feeling the burn. No, we’re not talking about the exercise-type of burn or the sun burn from our wonderful vacations in Hawaii–we’ve been too busy working with Family House to work on our tans. There’s almost a month left until the 27th Annual Family House Polo Match and we still have a lot to do.
Which explains why, even though this blog was just created, there hasn’t been much blogging going on!
For those of you who don’t know, Family House is a hospital hospitality house. It is one of the largest hospital hospitality houses in the country, providing affordable, convenient and comfortable housing in which patients and family members can stay while awaiting treatment. During its 27 years of existence, Family House has hosted more than 10,000 guests from every state in the nation and from all points around the globe. Family House is truly a “home away from home.”
The Family House Polo Match is the premier fundraising event for Family House. This event is one of the most successful polo fundraisers in the world, raising more than $3 million in the past 26 years and drawing more than 2,000 spectators.
Polo Your Way- The 27th Annual Family House Polo Match at Hartwood Acres will be held on Saturday September 11, 2010. Gates open at 11 AM, the match begins at 1:30 PM. Kids and parents alike will enjoy the many activities and festivities along with the polo match, including: tailgating, vintage car show, boutique shopping, kids crafts & activities, tailgating, great food, great company and so much more!

Krol Media will be there the day of the event to help out this great organization. We’d love to see you all there! Don’t forget your big hats–you’ll need them when you help stop the divots while they play “Pretty Woman!”
