"We're looking forward to a fantastic event at International Polo Club," said Dave Offen, President of the PPSG. "Due to the dangerous nature of polo it is likely the PPSG will continue to receive requests for assistance. Thanks to the generosity of the polo community, we've been able to help so many people over the years and we hope to continue to do so."
In 2000, the 40-Goal Rob Walton Benefit was created to raise money for 8-goal Polo Hall of Famer, Rob Walton, who was paralyzed from the neck down in a polo accident. In this inaugural event, many of the best polo players in the world donated their time and efforts to play this exhibition match and raise funds to help Walton meet his on-going medical expenses.
Inspired by the success of the Rob Walton Benefit and recognizing the need to help other members of the polo community, Dave Offen, Tony Coppola and Tim Gannon founded the Polo Players Support Group (PPSG) and created the annual Lucchese 40-Goal Polo Challenge to raise funds to help members of the polo community in financial crisis caused by physical injury or illness. Since its inception in 2002, more than $2,200,000 has been given to 71 members of the polo industry.
In addition, title sponsor Lucchese is donating 20% of purchase proceeds to the PPSG when you shop using the promo code LUC40GOAL.
