We wish to thank the community for sharing a fantastic summer of Polo in Colts Neck. The Garber family opened their games to the public for all to enjoy as an alternative to familyfriendly and traditional summer outings on the Jersey Shore. Light fare, beverages, and children’s entertainment were also offered under our Hospitality Tent. Two River Theater Company, Shrewsbury Chorale, Pacific Encore Performances and ReVision Theatre were asked to sing The National Anthem at the Polo matches to boost exposure for their organizations and to continue community support.
The following community leaders have honored us by tossing out the first ceremonial ball: Asbury Park Mayor Ed Johnson, Board President of Boys and Girls Club of Monmouth County Hana Wolf, State Senator Jennifer Beck, Two River Times Publisher and NJ Congressional Candidate Diane Gooch and Pacific Encore Performances President Mary Weir.
We have been privileged to host the following charities to help with their community exposure and fundraising opportunities.

PCoCN provided an additional fan base of polo spectators to raise awareness for the charity, we donated food, beverages, entertainment, kids games and prizes.
