One of the most enjoyable parts of the biennial Windsor Charity Polo Cup is strolling along the east side of the field and viewing the casually elegant décor displayed by the tailgate guests. Each year, a theme is selected and prizes are awarded. From whimsical to elegant with sumptuous spreads, the creativity and camaraderie of the tailgate is a must-see.
“This year’s tailgate theme is ‘Fashion Trends Through the Decades,’ and we look forward to seeing some very stylish tailgaters representing fashion and fads from over the years,” says Windsor member and the event’s tailgate chair Stacey Lewis.
Presented by PNC Bank at the private residential community of Windsor over Presidents Day weekend, the Windsor Charity Polo Cup is recognized as the signature high-goal charity polo match of the Vero Beach season. The family-friendly event raises funds for worthy Indian River County charities.
Crafted by Windsor’s Clubhouse bar and in the spirit of the sport of polo, the 2024 Windsor Charity Polo Cup Signature Cocktail is aptly named “The Tailgate” and features this year’s Specialty Cocktail Sponsor Casa Dragones.
Exceptional tequila starts with exceptional soil. Casa Dragones’ agave fields are located within the Eje Volcánico Transversal (Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt) in Tequila, Jalisco, a chain of active and inactive volcanoes across Mexico. Here, the combination of soil, climate, and altitude produces the ideal agave plants to create the signature taste of Tequila Casa Dragones.
