For the 2017 Gala Moondance Silent Auction, Trustee Scott Douglas & his wife Wendy, kindly offered to host an authentic asada – a barbecue that typically takes place after a polo match.
The evening asada was preceded by drinks and canapés at Scott & Wendy’s bucolic property, during which their guests enjoyed a talk and demonstration of some of the intricacies of the age old game of polo.
Scott was joined by mentor and friend Gaston Rodriguez. Argentina’s Gaston Rodriguez is a respected member of the polo community, teacher of the sport, and innovator behind the development of polo programs throughout the world that cater to novices as well as seasoned professionals. It was a real family affair, as Gaston’s cousin Luis manned the grill.
It was a perfect, late September evening and Indigo Soul entertained with their repertoire of R&B, soul and light pop. The band featured Carol Piro on lead vocals and shakers, Jeremy Coster on bass and Steve Fava on percussion and supporting vocals.
A very special thank you to Scott and Wendy for opening up their wonderful home. Thanks also to all who bid on this spectacular silent auction item.
