Have you ever stomped a divot? Grab your hat and best equestrian dress and attend the Junior League of Memphis Polo Event at the Memphis Polo Club each October (2018 date coming soon). Hors d’oeuvres and drinks will be served under an elegant tent. This annual fundraiser benefits the Junior League of Memphis G.R.O.W. program at their two locations Binghampton and Berclair.
G.R.O.W. benefiting programs:
- Pre-K Readiness – Volunteers will partner with the Pre-K and Kindergarten teachers at Brewster Elementary School to choose books and crafts that go along with their current curriculum and work one-on-one with the students to prepare them for kindergarten.
- Thursday Supper Club – Volunteers serve weekly meals and hold classes for parents and their children. These classes are collaborations with our local community partners and focus on such topics as financial literacy, discipline, education, advocacy, job skills, fire safety, cooking and in a very hands-on atmosphere.
