The Chukka Foundation and Hanover Charities are excited to be hosting their 10th signature Polo Charity Event on Sunday, 17th February 2019 at 2 p.m. at the Chukka Sandy Bay Polo Field in Hanover. The organizers are delighted to be hosting the Newport RI International Polo Team this year alongside Jamaica’s finest talented polo players.
The Polo Charity Event will be a social affair with a delicious high tea and drinks, thrilling polo, games, auctioning, lively dancing with DJ Murdoch. The traditional hat competition will be an enjoyable part of the afternoon activities, and the charities look forward to seeing competitors in their fanciers and stylish hats. This evening of fun will be dedicated to continuing the Chukka Foundation and Hanover Charities’ philanthropic missions; financing their scholarships and community projects throughout the island.
The Polo Event’s origins are based in a partnership between Hanover Charities and Chukka Foundation to create a one of a kind social event in Western Jamaica that would greatly impact the lives of Jamaicans. Hanover Charities portion of the proceeds provides scholarships for a number of youth in Hanover to pursue a tertiary education, as well as other community projects throughout the west. The Chukka Foundation’s portion goes towards assisting schools and children with school supplies and equipment, community projects, and scholarships. The charity polo event is expected to bring together locals and visitors for an exciting family day of play, but more importantly as a chance to give back.
The Polo Charity Event has been endorsed by The Jamaica Tourist Board and other sponsors, and is Jamaica’s largest and most prestigious polo event. The Polo Charity Event has gained positive local publicity and, with the Rhode Island Newport Polo Team participating this year, will receive an international audience to broaden the charities and sponsors reach.
Last year’s event had 400 spectators, and raised gross US$44,000 for charity. The goal is to surpass these figures this coming year. Sheona Muschett, Manager of the Chukka Foundation expressed her delight for the planning of the upcoming event, and her appreciation for the support of the sponsors, the Rhode Island and local polo teams. Katrin Casserly, Chair of Hanover Charities also shared her take on the event, saying “this annual Polo event has added a fun filled family day to [their] week of fund raising efforts for Hanover Charities. [They] are grateful for this partnership with the Chukka family.” The event is the last activity of Hanover Charities’ Annual Week of Fun & Fundraising.

Hanover Charities is the largest non-profit, 501c3 organization in Western Jamaica. Celebrating the Diamond Jubilee in 2017, Hanover Charities since its inception has invested millions of US$ to the parish of Hanover. The charity provides help to a number of charitable efforts each year including school feeding programs; the ill, elderly or homeless are served over 600 hearty meals from the Cecile Clare Kitchen of Love. Most schools date back to the sixties and leave much desire to be renovated or enlarged – Hanover Charities assists with new furniture, class room extensions and even computer rooms. The charity organization has also provided help to facilities such as the Westhaven Home for Disabled and Abandoned Children, the Hanover Infirmary, an annual Health Fair and the extensive scholarship programme.
