Sun hats, dapper bow ties, celebrity glamour and excitement on horseback were the order of the day at Teen Cancer America’s (TCA) Rock ‘N’ Polo IV, the fourth annual polo match and fundraiser held on Saturday, June 17 at Will Rogers Polo Field in Pacific Palisades. Guests enjoyed the fast-paced sport of polo, live music, and sumptuous food and drinks in a fun and festive setting. The event raises funds that benefit the work of TCA, the national non-profit founded by rock icons Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of The Who, which develops age-specific facilities and services for adolescents and young adults with cancer. Additionally, on Friday, June 16, TCA hosted a reception at the Bruce Lurie Gallery in Pacific Palisades to celebrate polo and meet some of the players.  A portion of the evening’s art sales will benefit TCA.
