dollars for our partners.
In keeping with San Diego Polo Club’s giving
guidelines, our events specifically support programs
focusing on children, animals, education and health

Ticket Details
We have found the best way to maximize our partnership is to work together to sell tickets to the event. The VIP tent currently has
29 tables with 8 seats at each table, totaling 232 guests. If there is demand for more VIP seats, we can accommodate 10 guests at a
table, totaling 290 guests. Each VIP ticket is sold for $55, which includes a reserved seat in an elevated, tented area with a cocktail
waitress and bottomless mimosas. $5 of each VIP ticket sold is automatically donated to your charity.
All events have a minimum guarantee of 50 tickets with the exception of May 31, July 19, August 30, and September 27, which
require a minimum of 100 tickets sold by the charity.
If your group is larger than 200 guests, or you would like a private area, you are welcome to rent the Polo Pavilion, a grassy area
just north of the VIP tent.
