 Malibu nonprofit, Safety Harbor Kids, will be hosting its 9th Annual Polo Classic at the historic Will Rogers Park in Pacific Palisades on Sept. 10 featuring a performance by Grammy-winning guitarist Albert Lee.

With music icon, Peter Asher emceeing the event, guests will enjoy a gourmet luncheon by Monrose catering, a wine tasting and an open bar. The halftime show will feature Albert Lee followed by Dream World Cirque and a champagne divot stomp.  

As the polo match resumes, guests can enjoy the VIP lounge with an Orchid Garden and refreshments by Longshot Expresso bar, Duvel beer and specialty drinks by Dama tequila. High tea will also be served by Charles & Company Tea.

The ninth annual event to benefit disadvantaged children within 50 miles of Malibu is supported by many Malibu businesses, including Geoffrey’s Restaurant, D’Amores Pizzeria, Tra di Noi, Marmalade Café, European Shoe and PC Greens, and the Miss Malibu Pageant. Companies including Jakks Pacific, Bentley Beverly Hills and high-end property company Engel & Voelkers will also have tables at the event. 

“Safety Harbor Kids is Malibu’s baby, conceived by a local parentless child at age 16 on Pt. Dume” said Petrie Alexandra Williams, the organization’s president. “Safety Harbor Kids was literally started by a parentless child who grew up in Malibu. We have helped thousands of children learn music and art and we could never have done it without the support of the local business community of Malibu.”  

Founded in 2007, Safety Harbor Kids is a 501c3 nonprofit formed for the purpose of enriching the lives of parentless and homeless children through education in the areas of college, career, the arts and personal growth.
