The Victory Cup has partnered with Purple Heart Homes as the Official 2019 Charity Partner. Purple Heart Homes is a 501(c)3 public charity that was founded in 2008 by John Gallina and Dale Beatty, two combat wounded Veterans. After being injured in Iraq in 2004, they returned to their community and received a warm welcome and grateful appreciation for their service. They began to question why all Veterans didn’t get the same levels of support and assistance from society. The answer isn’t easy, but Purple Heart Homes fills the gaps in housing through the Veterans’ Aging In Place and Veterans Home Ownership Programs. From building a ramp for a Veteran of World War II, to providing home ownership opportunities to younger Veterans, their programs are designed out of necessity and fit the specific needs of the Veteran population.


Tickets are currently available for as little as $12 online and go up from there. For those seeking an upper tier experience, there will be a “Rosé All Day” Golden Mallet Tent as well as a Founder’s Lounge VIP Tent. These guests will enjoy a more refined experience while they mix and mingle with premier event sponsors and partners and even the polo players themselves.
