The Orthopedic Foundation Polo Cup
On Sunday, September 19, friends and families gathered for a lively afternoon in the countryside for the 3rd annual Orthopedic Foundation Polo Cup. This fundraiser featured a thrilling polo competition on the grounds of Bryn Du Mansion in Granville. Proceeds support the work of The Orthopedic Foundation and the Arthritis Foundation, benefitting musculoskeletal research and the advancement of treatment and care for those afflicted with the disease.
Local Columbus polo teams played alongside high-goal international guest players. While the focus of the gathering was polo, there was a variety of other entertainment including classic cars, food trucks and musical entertainment by The UltraSounds Jazz Band. During the kickoff program, Chair of The Orthopedic Foundation, Dr. Daryl Sybert, welcomed the crowd of more than 1,000 guests and introduced an arthritis patient, Kaitlyn James, who shared her experience with debilitating arthritis and the important impact that research has had on her quality of life. The Orthopedic Foundation Polo Cup is sponsored by Nationwide, Morgan Stanley, McDonald’s, Land Rover Easton, Huntington Bank, Maple Orthodontics, The Raines Group – HER Realtors, Ed Kistner Foundation, Budweiser and Pepsi.
