St. Regis Hotels & Resorts brought its polo circuit to the Bay Area by hosting an afternoon of polo on Saturday, September 20th at the Wild Oak Saddle Club in Sonoma Valley headed by St Regis Connoisseur and world-renowned polo player Nacho Figueras –who is also the face of Ralph Lauren Polo-.
The event raised more than $40,000 for the Giant Steps Therapeutic Equestrian Center, a Northern Bay Area year-round therapeutic riding program that helps disabled children.
Guests enjoyed an Argentine Asado prepared by St. Regis San Francisco’s executive chef Olivier Belliard, St. Regis’ signature cocktail the Bloody Mary, wine tasting by Hamel Family Wines, a silent auction and a beautiful setting by celebrated event designer J. Riccardo Benavides- who also designed the San Francisco Opera Ball 2014.
Event sponsors included Bentley, Hamel Family Wines of Glen Ellen and Restoration Hardware.
