The luxury real estate brand honors Safety Harbor Kids to benfit orphan, foster and homeless children with the 9th annual event
Committed to community and growth, luxury lifestyle real estate brand, Engel & Völkers California, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica showed their devotion to improving the lives of disadvantaged children by sponsoring the 9th Annual Safety Harbor Kids (SHK) Polo Classic in Los Angeles on Saturday.
Founded by John Williams, who was left parentless at the age of nine, the Malibu based non-profit organization aims to enrich the lives of local orphans, foster, and homeless children through an array of educational and personal growth programs. Ranging from career development to music and arts education, the opportunities offered through Safety Harbor Kids teaches its children how to lead happy and successful lives.
“I am incredibly proud of the event that our teams at Engel & Völkers brought to life this weekend,” says Engel & Völkers Los Angeles CEO and License Partner, Raphael Barragán. “Our License Partners, Managers and Advisors from across California and even stretching out to Las Vegas, came together in support of our cause.”
The event was held at the historic Will Rogers Polo Grounds. Beverly Hills Bentley, The British-American Business Council and Southern California Magazine were among the additional sponsors of the event. Dressed in white and boasting their best hats, guests enjoyed gourmet food and beverages, polo matches, test drives of the new Bentley Botega and live performances by Grammy Award winner, Albert Lee and pop artist Kiersten Collins.
“It is a true honor to continue our efforts with Safety Harbor Kids,” says Engel & Völkers Santa Monica License Partner, Sandra Miller. “Each year we have succeeded in gaining increased awareness, support and ultimately, results for the children; we look forward to raising the bar again at our next Polo Classic.”
