Melbournians Will Descend On Daylesford This March For The Inaugural Daylesford Polo, Raising Funds For TLC For Kids


The Daylesford Polo will dazzle attendees at the Mingela Polo Club in Drummond this coming March 23rd, 2019 in what is sure to become a highlight of the Melbourne social and philanthropic calendar. Located little more than an hour from Melbourne, the Daylesford Polo will showcase what makes our city great: fine food, delightful drinks, world class fashion and a strong love for sport, with all profits going to help sick children and their families around Australia.

Proudly presented by Bentley Melbourne, the Daylesford Polo is situated on 1,000 acres of picturesque countryside and will include a full range of hospitality options, with fully catered options, premium private marquees, as well as General Admission tickets available for purchase. All ticket options offer fantastic views of the immaculate full-sized polo field.

The owners of Mingela Polo Club, Tolga Kumova and Ben Kay, have generously donated the grounds of their polo pitch to host the first annual Daylesford Polo, with all profits benefiting TLC for Kids and helping to make an enormous difference in the lives of sick children and their families. Following his incredible donation of The Dinner event in 2015, Tolga has been a patron of TLC for Kids for several years. Similarly, Ben has been involved with the charity as an ambassador since 2018.

Alongside the excitement of the Mingela Polo Cup match, there will be music from some of the city’s best DJs, and iconic Polo activities such as the ladies’ and the men’s dash.

“We’re absolutely delighted to be involved in the first ever Daylesford Polo raising money to help sick kids and their families cope with the challenges of everyday life with illness. This is an exciting time for us and we’re looking forward to announcing more details in due course,” says CEO and Founder of TLC for Kids, Tim Conolan.

Guests have the opportunity to mingle and sip drinks in style in a private, fully-catered field side marquee, taking in all that the event has to offer while engaging with premium brands and tasting gourmet food.

The Daylesford Polo is the ideal way to enjoy great food and drink, spectacular fashion, unrivalled countryside and world class sports, while supporting the amazing work of TLC for Kids.
