The 31st Anniversary of The Harriman Cup, the annual fundraiser and alumni polo match between the University of Virginia and Yale, will be held in Bethpage State Park on Saturday, September 12th. Bethpage State Park is the home of Polo at the Park.  The action begins at 10:00am and is non-stop until 6:00pm and everyone is welcome to join this fabulous, fun-filled day in the country and an absolutely not-to-be-missed event for superb polo and people-watching. The event draws hundreds of fans who arrive by trains from Penn Station to celebrate the legendary rivalry between University of Virginia and Yale University.  Celebrating over a quarter-century of polo tradition, The Harriman Cup is a polo match and social event commemorating the life of diplomat, polo player, and former New York governor Averell Harriman.  The Cup was founded in 1984 as a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the sport of polo and supporting the collegiate polo programs at both schools.  For more information and tickets, go to HARRIMAN CUP. 

I am so thrilled this year to be once again judging the Best Dressed, Best Hat, and Best Tailgate Awards along with Dean Zacharias, of Proper Kid Problems.  We will be photographing and picking our favorites throughout the day.   This is definitely a “little dress event” with the young crowd of alums going all-out in their spectating finery.   We love dark florals for fall, and this fit and flare is the perfect shade for cheering on both of these long time rivals.
