The first Sunday of November witnessed the presentation of the 17th annual “Harvest Cup Polo Classic” by the Junior League of Greater Covington and the 2013 Harvest Cup Polo Committee. Held at Leah Farm in Folsom, the home field of the New Orleans Polo Club, the major annual fundraiser of the Greater Covington Junior League supports organizations and events such as Read for the Record, Career Corner, Project Prom, Girls’ Health Day, Spring Stomp Run and more.
With over 1,200 guests in attendance, the “Harvest Cup” celebrated its 17th year with exciting polo matches by the New Orleans Polo Club, a parade of breeds from local horse farms, food from over 30 regional restaurants and specialty libations from Effen Vodka, New Orleans Rum and Covington Brewhouse.
Fine jewelry company Lee Michaels also held a raffle and photo booth inside its corporate tent. Silent and live auctions featured work from poster artist Gretchen Armbruster, and live auction honors were performed by Mark Romig. Saints fans needed not despair of missing the game that day, as a catered air-conditioned VIP lounge tent broadcasted the New Orleans Saints versus New York Jets game.
