Austin’s best dressed came in full force on Saturday to attend “The Best Party in Texas” for The Victory Cup polo match where the UT Longhorns polo club took on A&M University. The annual event, now going into its 10th year, was founded by ex-Senator of New York, Greg Ball, who is an avid polo player himself. He founded The Victory Cup while in office as an annual political fundraiser and has kept it going throughout the years.
The social event is not only for putting on your best seersucker attire and wide brimmed hats, it also benefits Dell Children’s Hospital, where 70% of ticket sales go directly to the hospital. The next event will be held July 11, in Patterson, NY for The Cardillo Cup. Then they will be back in Texas October 17th for Boots & Pearls which will team up with the Austin Young Men’s Business League and will benefit Austin Sunshine Camps.
