Polo Under the Palms, Held at Sarasota Polo Club, Lakewood Ranch to Benefit Cancer Research at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center

LAKEWOOD RANCH, FLA — The annual Polo Under the Palms was held at the Sarasota Polo Club at Lakewood Ranch to benefit cancer research at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center Saturday, March 23rd.

In their effort to support and promote “The Sport of Kings” Crooked Brook encourages families and people of all ages to attend and participate in polo events.

“Polo events are fun and a great activity for families and people of all ages.” said Donna Jones, senior design assistant at Crooked Brook where they specialize in custom polo jerseys.

Funds were raised through sponsorships, a polo competition, silent auction and a post-game soiree according to Christie Uihlein who is co-chair of the event with her husband James P. Uihlein (a member of one of the polo teams) which raised about $150,000 last year.

“Of course we’d like to hit that again this year” Christie said.

The annual event was started by The Uihlein family three years after Christie Uihlein’s father-in-law Jamie Uihlein was diagnosed with stage II tongue cancer in 2004. He sought a second opinion at MD Anderson, where he received treatment and he is currently cancer-free.

Lakewood Ranch is an unincorporated master planned community in southeastern Manatee County, Florida, United States, built on part of what was once a timber ranch owned by members of Milwaukee’s Uihlein family.

The theme Polo under the Palms was inspired by a similar MD Anderson event in Texas, Polo on the Prairie.

“We are all here for the charity,” said Nick Drizos a season ticket holder of Lakewood Ranch. “Today is all about the cure of cancer.” “We love the sport and it’s just a great cause for MD.”

About Polo

Polo (Persian: چوگان‎, Chōwgān), is a team sport played on horseback in which the objective is to score goals against an opposing team. Sometimes called “The Sport of Kings”, it was started by Persians, and was popular in Iran until 1979, after which its popularity there declined sharply due to the Iranian Revolution. Players score by driving a small white plastic or wooden ball into the opposing team’s goal using a long-handled mallet.

In the sport of polo, polo shirts are called polo jerseys. Polo shirts are also called “polos” or tennis shirts and they became so popular on golf courses, people started calling them golf shirts. Although the words “polo shirt” and “golf shirt” are used interchangeably, the term “polo shirt” is more popular.

More casual than button-front shirts and dressier than t-shirts, embroidered polo shirts are part of the uniform for many businesses. Polo shirts embroidered with a company logo given as gifts or giveaways are called promotional polo shirts and are great way to build brand awareness.

Although the most popular method of printing t-shirts is screen printing, Crooked Brook t-shirts are printed using Direct To Garment Printing (DTG) which is the process of using inkjet printers to print an image directly onto t-shirts without the use of screens like with screen printing, which requires a lot of setup e.g., creating screens for each color. In addition, DTG printing uses eco-friendly, water soluble ink, unlike some screen printing methods that layer Plastisol (a suspension of PVC particles in a plasticizer) on top of the t-shirt. The only requirement for DTG printing is for the image to be high resolution, resulting in photograph quality printing with no setup fee or minimums for custom t-shirts.

Custom and made to order apparel and accessories for men, women and children, including but not limited to: suits, shirts, Hawaiian shirts, pants, vests, dresses, skirts, gowns, jeans, boxer shorts, martial arts and yoga outfits.
