Lakewood Ranch, FL – The Sarasota Polo Club has had huge crowds at Sunday matches throughout the season, with attendees from all over the region showing their love of the sport and filling the Polo Grounds week after week. And, at almost every match, Marc Bokoff of Cruise Planners sets up his tent to highlight Celebrity Cruises; together, Bokoff and Celebrity have partnered to be one of the season’s top sponsors.
“Polo fans like to have fun,” said Bokoff, “and we were thrilled when Celebrity Cruises offered to provide a cruise to raffle off at Sarasota Polo. Cruising is a great vacation experience, and one that hundreds of Polo-goers have registered for with the hopes of winning!” The lucky winner will receive a 7-night Caribbean cruise for two on the new Celebrity Apex – sailing in a balcony cabin. That’s a prize worth upwards of $7,000, depending on the sailing.
Ron Trytek, Marketing Director of Sarasota Polo, noted that Celebrity Cruises has been a big proponent of polo for some time. “It’s notable,” he said, “that so many Sarasota Polo fans have expressed their enjoyment of cruising and the Celebrity brand, particularly, when they speak to Marc. There’s a synergy between polo enthusiasts and Celebrity Cruises. We were delighted when Celebrity decided to sponsor our season along with Marc Bokoff of Cruise Planners.”
According to Bokoff and Trytek, entries for the raffle will continue throughout the regular season. The winner of the cruise will be drawn at half-time on Sunday, April 24, the last day of the season. Attendees can enter to win the cruise when they visit the green Cruise Planners tent at the polo field on Sundays.
