Before event day be sure to join us at the Larsen Art Auction Preview Party on Wednesday, October 21st from 6-8pm at their gallery in downtown Scottsdale (3705 N Bishop Lane). There, some 250 pieces to be auctioned off in the Picasso Pavillion at The Polo Party will be on display for bidders. From four figure works of art to those well into the six figures there’s nothing quite like the Larsen Art Auction with polo in the background dressed by the beautiful McDowell Mountains. Please RSVP to RSVP@LarsenGallery.com.
On Friday, October 23rd the Molina Fine Jewelers VIP Party returns for its fourth year at Al Molina’s spectacular boutique on Camelback Road. All players will be in attendance. This party is by invitation only and reserved for sponsors and certain ticket purchasers.
That evening, look for some of the players to be enjoying a night out at Dakota, one of downtown Scottsdale’s newest and best hotspots, and a new sponsor to this year’s event.
Dakota and its sister clubs at Maya Day + Nightclub, The District and Shade Lounge at W Scottsdale will be adding another key feature on Saturday: The Triyar Ivy League Lounge.
Other new elements this year include the High-Tea Tent presented by The Phoenician Resort, a Phoenix Symphony quartet playing during a period of play and field-side ballroom dancing by Fred Astaire Dance Studios. And it will be hard to miss this year’s mid-field horse tunnel by Mobile Mini. So will some of the field improvements made possible this year by first-time sponsor Realty Executives.
Favorites back again this year include the Heineken Pavilion with Wasted Grain, and The Saguaro Hotel with its own field-side tent.
The Canine Couture, a dog fashion show like no other, returns along with the World’s “Longest” Catwalk presented by Phoenix Fashion Week and sponsored by Cullum Homes.
