2016 Crouse Health Polo for Preemies

Sunday, July 31

The inaugural CNY Fertility Center Polo for Preemies on Sunday, July 31, was a huge success, with more than 700 in attendance on the beautiful grounds of the Skaneateles Polo Club.

The day was filled with socializing with family, friends and business associates, while enjoying a polo match featuring the Skaneateles Polo Team.

“We are excited to have presented a fun, family event to benefit the newborns cared for in our NICU and their families,” says Crouse Health CEO and President Kimberly Boynton. “Polo for Preemies is a first for Crouse, and we thank the Skaneateles Polo Club for their enthusiastic support.”

The event featured delicious food & beverages, entertainment by the Mere Mortals, and fun activities for the kids, including pony rides and a bounce house.

Additionally, raffle tickets were sold for a “Needle in the Haystack” competition to win a beautiful Tudor watch, courtesy of Henry Wilson Jewelers.

Team sponsors were AXA Advisors and C&S Engineers with, Realty USA serving as the trophy sponsor. Chase Design donated graphic design services and Eagle Newspapers was a media partner. Beer was donated by Middle Ages Brewery.

Proceeds from the event, which totaled more than $12,500, benefited Crouse Hospital’s Baker Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, where our “Little Fighters,” the region’s tiniest and sickest infants, have received care for the past four decades.

We are excited to announce that plans are already underway for next year!
