Queensland Polo Association supports families touched by breast cancer

Hundreds of people turned out at Queensland Polo Association’s Pink Polo Day in Wonglepong on Sunday, to help raise funds in support of local families affected by breast cancer.

Under clear, blue skies patrons were treated to world class polo for the price of a gold coin donation.

Co-organiser Samantha Sadleir, from the polo association, said the event drew picnickers, decorated tents, fashions on the field and a range of special activities.

A Canungra volunteer won the divot stump contest and polo community member Rona Glennie, a breast cancer survivor, won the women’s foot race.  

“Rona and her husband are valued members of our polo community and she’s a breast cancer survivor so it was great to see her absolutely smash the footrace,” Ms Sadleir said.

The event – Queensland Polo Association’s major competition for the year – was held at Elysian Fields as part of the Turn Canungra Pink campaign.

Cups were awarded to gold, silver and bronze prize winners.

Best Young Player of the Year went to James Hoey and and Beaudesert resident Mark Huebner was among the winners of the silver cup.
