The Woodford Reserve Mothers Day Polo Classic Media Launch

March 26th, 2014

It’s coming up to that time of the year where Sydney’s social set put the day aside to relax in style and watch the polo.

The Woodford Reserve Mother’s Day Polo Classic, to be held at the Kurri Burri Polo Club on Sunday May 11, launched its charity event on Monday evening at Keystone’s hot spot, Rushcutters.

Welcomed with a Woodford premium craft bourbon Sour cocktail then Stella Artois and Veuve Clicquot to follow, with a tasting of the fancy new wine spritz, Bondi Rd by Yellow Tail.

The Mother’s Day event has fast become a landmark society polo event in NSW. What started out as a small family day in the Kurri Burri fields six years ago, has been building into the thousands. The picturesque estate runs along the Hawkesbury River with the Blue Mountains as a back drop, a perfect escape for city dwellers.

Mahalia Barnes is confirmed as the headlining act and is set to perform some soulful numbers on smooth fm’s entertainment stage; Kris Smith will add star power to the Woodford Reserve marquee as their ambassador, and special guest Blanche d’Alpuget, a long standing patron of their chosen charity Inala, will be attending with The Honourable Bob Hawke.
Inala, supporting individuals living with disabilities and special needs, has raised $173K thus far thanks to the support of the event over the years.

Crispy Pork Hoc was matched with Woodford Reserve’s Kentucky Apple, and guests’ taste buds were treated to oysters with Merlot vinaigrette, sardines on toast, tomato and goats curd salad, and for the sweet tooth – Pear and cherry strudel to complete the evening.

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.

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 :)
