      Even Polo Players Get the Blues - Suicide Prevention Benefit Game

      The Cornell Polo teams and the Central New York Polo Club (CNYPC) are hosting our sixth “Even Polo Players Get the Blues,” a benefit polo match in support of suicide prevention. The game takes place on Saturday, February 29 at 1:00 pm at Oxley Center, 220 Pine Tree Road in Ithaca, NY.

      For those who have never seen this fast-paced sport where horses and athletes are a team, “Even Polo Players Get the Blues” will be the perfect opportunity to learn about polo. Before and during the game, we will be selling ‘Mama Said Hand Pies’ and carrots to use as votes for your favorite horse. All proceeds will go to the Ithaca Suicide Prevention and Crisis Service. We also graciously accept contributions to Suicide Prevention & Crisis Service in memory of Sue Knight, Cornell Polo Alumna and a member of the CNYPC. We will have several booths where visitors can learn about suicide prevention and mental health resources in the area.

      Since 1969, Suicide Prevention and Crisis Service (SPCS) has helped people struggling with depression, anxiety, grief, and suicide thoughts by providing free, non-judgmental and compassionate listening. Visit http://ithacacrisis.org/ for more information.

      Admission to the game is free and visitors can vote for their favorite horse in the match and learn how to hit a polo ball. Members of the Cornell University Polo Team and the Skidmore Polo Team will be present to speak with visitors about polo and their favorite horses.

      Cost: Free - We will be selling Mama Said hand pies. Vote for your favorite horse buying carrots and placing them in a bag labelled for that horse! Proceeds from both the hand pies and the carrot voting will benefit the Ithaca Suicide Prevention and Crisis Service. We also accept donations.
