The Event

The 2010 Mercedes-Benz Polo Challenge in Bridgehampton, NY, brings in the world's leading equestrian athletes for six weekends every summer. charity: water volunteers and staff took the opportunity to set up on the sidelines and reach thousands of attendees each Saturday.

We shared stories of the water crisis with hundreds of polo fans -- from celebrities to socialites to family members. Guests learned what it’s like to carry a full Jerry can, watched videos from the field and talked with our staff and volunteers to learn more about the water crisis.
