Watch The Kentucky Derby at “The Best Derby Party In Texas”
Austin, TX (01/21/16) — The Victory Cup Polo Match is returning to Austin, Texas this spring to present: “The Victory Cup Derby Day — The Best Derby Party In Texas.” The Derby Day Victory Cup Polo Match will benefit Austinite Matt Mackowiak’s fundraising campaign for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), which raises hundreds of thousands of dollars each year for research to fight blood cancers.
While the event is a private, for-profit event, The Victory Cup partners with local charities, affording them the opportunity to use a code to receive 70% of all sales tracked to that code! Please use the code ‘LLS’ to assist event Chairman Matt Mackowiak in his mission to raise $100,000 for this amazing charity.
Mackowiak is an Austin-based political and communications professional, biweekly columnist for The Austin American Statesman and political analyst for KTBC Fox 7 and KVUE ABC 24.
Victory Cup attendees are encouraged to get dressed up to enjoy a gorgeous spring afternoon. Guests will enjoy taking in the majesty of the horses, the sights of beautiful people and the thrill of heart pounding polo! A true entertainment experience, The Victory Cup has not only lined up exciting rival polo matches, but polo-goers will enjoy field side tailgating, food trucks, a classic car show, the pet parade and a children’s playground for families. Then after the matches watch the horses run at the 142nd Kentucky Derby on a huge mobile LED screen on the polo field!
Additionally, there will be a VIP tent for guests who want to enjoy a more refined experience while they mix and mingle with premier event sponsors and partners. The VIP tent will feature local farm to table foods and local wines, spirits and beer from the greater Austin area.
The day of polo ends with a sabering presentation and player awards! After that, a 9ft by 16ft LED screen will display a live feed of the 142nd run of the Kentucky Derby.
Following the Kentucky Derby live video stream, Victory Cup Farm to Table pass holders roll into an awesome Farm to Table Dinner on the polo field and with the polo players themselves! A limited amount of Farm to Table Dinner tickets are now available on The Victory Cup website.
The event, which is expecting over 3,000 attendees, will be hosted on Saturday, May 7, 2016 starting at 1PM at The Austin Polo Club: 13628 Gregg Manor Rd, Austin, TX.
Now in its eleventh year, The Victory Cup is being presented by BlackStoneTexas.com, an Austin based technology and marketing company. Black Stone’s CEO, Greg Ball, founded an annual polo match in Washington, D.C. and upon returning home to New York founded The Victory Cup. The event was held as an annual political fundraiser that Greg Ball held during his time in office (as an Assemblyman and New York State Senator). Now that Greg has returned to the private sector, The Victory Cup lives on as a private, for-profit event and ‘The Best Party of the Summer®’.
You will never forget this day! Take advantage of this deal and enjoy this kid friendly, pet friendly event while taking in classic cars, enjoying an awesome VIP lunch and experience, or just watching an awesome polo match with surprise celebrity players — on your own or with a group of friends!!!
