GETTING WIGGY WITH IT! GPL’s Polotini Presents WIGSTOCK! at International Polo Club to Benefit SAGE
February 26th, 2019

The 10th Annual Land Rover Palm Beach International Gay Polo Tournament Presented by RSM US gallops back to the social scene, April 4-7, 2019, to be hosted once again at the International Polo Club Palm Beach. As Gay Polo League (GPL) festivities rage on, Friday’s “GPL Polotini Presents WIGSTOCK!” party is the place to be! WIGSTOCK! is a rousing, poolside cocktail party with food stations, a full bar, and electrifying entertainment, featuring Michael Dean as Cher and Velvet Lenore as Donna Summer. As GPL has become a platform for human rights, the Friday, April 5 party is a fundraiser for SAGE, with the net proceeds from ticket sales and the silent auction being donated to the LGBT organization. Wigs are encouraged – the wilder and wackier the better!

For 40 years, SAGE has worked tirelessly on behalf of LGBT elders. Building off the momentum of the Stonewall uprising and the emerging LGBT civil rights movement, a group of activists came together to ensure that LGBT adults could age with respect and dignity. SAGE is more than just an organization, it’s a movement of loving, caring activists, dedicated to providing advocacy, services, and support to members of the LGBT community.

“It’s the right thing to do,” says Chip McKenney, founder of GPL. “LGBT elders fought – and still fight – for our rights. This is a way to give back and honor their heroic efforts in trying to level the playing field for LGBT. We wouldn’t be here today, playing polo, if not for their determination and strength.”

Tickets for “GPL Polotini Presents WIGSTOCK!” party are $125 per person and can be purchased here, along with tickets for all of the 10th Annual Land Rover Palm Beach International Gay Polo Tournament Presented by RSM US events and festivities.
