39th Saturday Family House Polo Game at Hartwood Acres | Events of regional interest


Family House, a nonprofit organization that provides “affordable, comfortable, and convenient housing for patients, families, and caregivers who travel to Pittsburgh for medical care,” will host the 39th Annual Family House Polo Game presented by First National Bank on Saturday, September 10, at Hartwood Acres.

This year’s polo match will feature “a fun and festive day for all ages with fan favorites including tailgating, shopping in the Sip and Shop tent, vintage cars and a pro polo match.”

All funds raised through the event directly support Family House’s mission.

Doors open at 10 a.m., activities at 11 a.m., opening ceremonies begin at 1 p.m., and the exhibition game featuring “our very own Howard Hanna Real Estate Services Pittsburgh Polo Club vs. Legacy #1 Cochran Potomac Polo Club”, starts at 1:30 a.m.

At halftime of the UPMC health plan, guests are invited onto the UPMC grounds to “crush the divots”.

Guests are encouraged to take a commemorative photo at the UPMC Health Plan photo booth in their classic polo attire.

Additional activities include betting with touts, food trucks, silent auctions, live music from Brassholio and Jason Kendall, plus children’s pony rides, games and an encounter with the Sewickley hounds.

The addition of the VIP wine tent will include “exclusive wine tasting from California’s Sonoma County vineyards, as well as charcuterie pairings.” Guests will be welcomed into the private tent with a souvenir polo glass and treated to samples from seven wineries.

“The Family House Polo Match is a centuries-old tradition for the organization and the larger Pittsburgh community. I am thrilled to be able to welcome over 2,000 attendees to Hartwood Acres,” said General Manager Jennifer March. “All funds raised on September 10 allow Family House to keep room rates low while providing a ‘home away from home’ to the thousands of families who stay with us each year.”

Tickets are available at https://familyhouse.org/polo/. Children 12 and under participate for free.
