Polo in the Park

When you're young, it's hard to understand and accept that idea of "giving is better than receiving," ask anyone under the age of 18 around Christmas time. However, as we get older we hopefully come to understand that it truly is better to give than to receive. With that in mind and building upon a strong tradition of giving back, GBBN recently participated in an event called Polo in the Park.

The 4th Annual Polo in the Park, Bluegrass International Cup was recently held in Lexington to benefit the efforts of The Fayette-Alliance and Bluegrass Conservancy. The Fayette Alliance is Lexington's only land-use advocacy organization dedicated to protecting the renowned rural landscape of Fayette County, while strengthening the city of Lexington through innovative infill redevelopment. Bluegrass Conservancy is the region's only private, nonprofit land trust protecting the Inner Bluegrass of Kentucky through land conservation for future generations.

We truly believe in and support the work of the Fayette Alliance," said Joe Turley, GBBN partner, who co-hosted a table at the event. "This was an opportunity for us to show our support for the efforts of the organization, enjoy an exciting polo match, and give back all at the same time while having fun. Deborah Cutts, proposal manager and marketing coordinator for GBBN, and co-host added, "Neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet, nor hail can stop a GBBNer from attending such a fun event, especially when said GBBNers can don their Wellies to ward off the evil mud puddles."

Joining Joe Turley, Maureen Peters, and Deb and Colin Cutts were guests: Director of Engineering and Projects for Alltech - sponsor of the World Equestrian Games, Mark Coffman and his wife Freida; Lindsey Flora, Deputy Director of the Kentucky Horse Park; Pat Wise, Project Manager for D.W. Wilburn, and Craig Brown, structural engineer with Brown & Kubican.
