The 12th Annual Harvest Cup Polo Classic raised money for Junior League of Greater Covington and their community. On Sunday, October 26, 2008 spectators assembled at John Melton’s Folsom Equestrian Center for the thrilling and much-anticipated event. Proceeds went to the St. Tammany Parish groups of Hope House Child Advocacy Program, Habitat for Humanity, New Heights Equestrian Center and Southeast Hospital Adolescent Unit. The Junior League of Greater Covington will continue to serve the area through their involvement with Children’s Museum of St. Tammany, Career Corner and The Museum Without Walls.
A smorgasbord of food and drink from local restaurants, entertainment by Four Unplugged, a silent auction tent and raffle for a $2,500 gift certificate toward the purchase of an Omega watch at Lee Michael’s Fine Jewelers Lakeside were on the agenda. And of course, football was on in the Polo Pub because this was an autumn Sunday in America.
The day was led by chairs Janelle Allen and Stephanie Dupepe. The Junior League of Greater Covington is a ladies’ group “committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.” Girl Power!
