USA Water Polo will be hosting its first ever Polofest to raise funds for TEAM USA and other Olympic Water Polo programs this Sunday, September 16, from 4:00 pm to 7:30 p.m. at Old World German Village in Huntington Beach.
Polofest admission is $15 and includes a delicious meal of either chicken or bratwurst and two sides provided by Old World Restaurant, entrance to the All-Breed Dog Races, as well as live entertainment, and streaming of the Men’s National Team live from the World Cup in Germany. Polofest runs from 4:00 pm to 7:30 pm, but guests are encouraged to arrive early to enjoy the dog races from 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
The event will be jam-packed with players and supporters from all over Southern California. Olympians Genai Kerr and Brittany Hayes will be in attendance to meet and chat with fans, as well as Seal Beach resident Rachael Fattal, a current member of the Women’s National Team. Olympian Brittany Hayes will be in attendance supporting the All-Breed Dog Races with her pup Riley, a 5-time Weiner Dog Racing Champion.
The goal is to raise over $30,000 to go towards helping the Men’s and Women’s National Water Polo Teams by providing the fundamental training, travel and needed equipment required to prepare our current and future athletes for World Championship, Pan American, and Olympic Games. Supporting the Men’s and Women’s National Teams cost nearly $3 million dollars a year, and with all proceeds made at Old World the day of the event going directly back to USA Water Polo, the $3 million dollar goal will become more attainable.
