What a Mother’s Day I had… Without my mother. But my adorable mother for the day was great friend Dr Nikki Goldstein.

The Jeep Kurri Burri Polo Classic was the perfect match for mums from all walks of life. Sipping on Veuve Clicquot and taking in the fresh air and sunshine, friends and families enjoyed the charming country hospitality, gourmet food and live entertainment throughout the day.

The fifth annual charity event has become the premier family sport and lifestyle event in NSW, fermenting its reputation as a relaxed day for socials and locals to enjoy a competitive match of polo. But it’s not just for the adults; there were heaps of kids being kept entertained with the Reading Jets kids zone that included face painting, pony rides, Jack Russell Racing and the Kids’ Dash across the field. Apparently I wasn’t allowed to enter the dash. Thanks Nikki!

Host of The Voice Darren McMullen, joined in the frivolity and shared a classic picnic with his parents. Darren was reunited with former The Voice contestant, Prinnie Stevens, who later in the day performed her latest hit, Don’t Wake Me Up, calling on the kids to dance live on stage with her which was very cute!

Pimms, Punch or Peroni? The Polo Bar & Lawn, was a vibrant addition with everybody enjoying the country chic vibe as polo players mingled with guests. Daimon Downey set the tunes with a selection of tracks to keep guests including, Pip Edwards and Kristy-Lee Allan loving life and dancing on the side lines.

The Jeep marquee was full of fabulous people, who shared the day with their children. Celebrity chef Ben O’Donoghue cooked up a storm on the Jeep Grill for us. The food was absolutely delicious! Some of the fab people included Jesinta Campbell, Deborah Knight, Holy Bristly, Ed Phillips, Cameron Williams, David Campbell, David Whitehill, Sam Armytage, the adorable Benji and Zoe Marshall, plus MKR’s Luke Hines and Scott Gooding.

Plenty of money was raised and went towards the charity Inala – a Rudolf Steiner organisation supporting individuals with disabilities. Proceeds raised from this year’s event go towards the development of a New Day Service Facility for clients with high support needs, $145k has been raised to date. Amazing work!

I can’t wait for next year, I had such an enjoyable time. Perhaps next year, I’ll take my mummy :)

The JEEP Kurri Burri Polo Classic launched its Mother’s Day event on Wednesday evening to a select crowd of socialites, sponsors, polo players and media at Double Bay’s hot spot, Pelicano – and I was there to enjoy it!

We were greeted by hand crafted signs made with love, by Daimon Downey, exclaiming ‘Pelicano heart mummy’, and making gorgeous references to their sponsors JEEP and Veuve Cliquot. We were also welcomed with delicious canapés provided by Pelicano, who announced they will be hosting a cool, pop-up bar at Kurri Burri.

The event, to be held Sunday May 12, is fast becoming the landmark lifestyle and social polo event in NSW. Event Organisers Yakusan, gave a special thanks to Jeep, Veuve Clicquot, Jaeger Le-Coultre, Shangri La Hotels & Resorts, and Inala for their continued partnership, and welcomed The Classic Safari Company as a new partner for 2013. Gilles Merry (Yakusan MD) also thanked Glenn & Sam Wheatley the entertainment extraordinaires who joined the project to help take the event to new heights in 2013.

Kurri Burri Polo Club CEO, Adam Marshall, was thrilled to announce that the event’s headlining act was to be the talented Prinnie Stevens, one of Australia’s most sought after performers, “Prinnie is a mother herself, and the perfect role model for everything our event stands for.”

Money raised will go towards the charity Inala – a Rudolf Steiner organisation supporting individuals with disabilities. Tony Anderson, CEO, stated, “Since the event began four years ago over $113,000 has been raised for Inala. Proceeds raised from this year’s event will go towards the development of a New Day Service Facility for clients with high support needs.”

The Jeep Kurri Burri Polo Classic is a day for friends and family to enjoy authentic polo competition, country hospitality, gourmet food, beverage and live entertainment, set on a beautiful estate under the back drop of the Blue Mountains.

An Event To Please Even The Most Critical Party-Goers

August 30th, 2012

Double Bay has gone through many transitions over the years, from a thriving retail area, to a ghost town, then back to thriving, then back to being a ghost town. But it’s back to being a thriving evening hot-spot for those who prefer to relax and let their hair down, without the Eastern Suburbs rif-raf that other local venues attract.

It’s the very attractive bar and restaurant called Mrs Sippy, which celebrated their first birthday, and boy do they know how to put on a party!

To celebrate its first year in the limelight, Mrs Sippy opened their doors to a selective guest-list of names last night throwing a house party that left many with a sore head Thursday morning!

The evening was celebrated by co-owners Benjamin May, siblings Andrew and Kate Stanway, and Angus Abrahams as a ‘thank-you’ to all their friends, locals, and regulars who have supported the venue throughout the year. ”We’ve had the pleasure of hosting functions for some iconic brands, but never had the time to throw our own; we thought we’d celebrate one successful year by putting on a party everyone would remember!”

A glamorously sexy crowd joined in on the festivities which included newlyweds Kate Waterhouse and Luke Ricketson, the Stenmark twins Jordan and Zach, sweetheart Pip Edwards and Adam Ashley-Cooper, Terry Biviano and Anthony Minichiello, Gretal Packer, Daimon Downey, Maude Garrett, Zoe Balbi, Josh Flinn, David Whitehill, Tom Steinfort, Alison Piotrowski and teen heart throb Johnny Ruffo (he was so much shorter in real life!).

We were all welcomed so pleasantly by the friendly French giant at the door with a glass of Veuve (in my case a bottle) and their signature drink, the Mrs Sippy Martini. The Chandon was flowing and the tunes were pumping to the wee hours thanks to resident DJ Miss Annie.

The food was a knock-out, with a variety of canapés such as roasted pumpkin tart with goats cheese, oysters, wagyu beef sliders, lemon pepper prawn, and a selection of gourmet wood fired pizzas went down a treat, later on enjoying Gelatisimo ice-cream.

The entire venue was jumping, with upstairs being transformed into the Vodka Lounge with Belvedere and SKYY mixes to go. The crew unveiled “Star Trucker” a mobile food and drinks caravan.

When was the last time you saw a caravan parked in Double Bay?

Truly an awesome event and I can’t wait for their 2nd birthday!!!
