IMPD Mounted Horse Patrol Association invites the public to Indiana’s first-ever indoor polo match, Polkaboy, and fundraiser – August 24th

INDIANAPOLIS — The IMPD Mounted Horse Patrol Association is hosting “Polkaboy n’ Coliseum Polo” this August 24 at the Indiana Farmers Coliseum. This year’s event features Indiana’s first-ever indoor polo match at 5 pm with teams competing in exciting rounds called chukkers. At 7:30, fan-favorite German band Polkaboy takes the stage just outside the Coliseum.

Tickets are $25 through Ticketmaster and get you admission to the polo match and Polkaboy concert. Or upgrade to a VIP ticket for $100 and get admission to both plus access to the VIP tent, preferred parking, and an open bar with drinks and food included.

100% of the proceeds benefit the IMPD Mounted Patrol for the purchase and care of horses, training, and supplies.

More information, VIP tickets, and sponsorships are available now at impdmountedpatrol.org.

“This is our single largest fundraiser event for the Unit,” said Chris Golightly, Executive Director of the HPA. “No tax dollars comes to our Association, and we purchase all of the horses and training for officers and their equine partners. This is a true public-private partnership where private donations fund the purchase of these great animals.”

Indiana Farmers Insurance is this year’s supporting corporate sponsor. “This year’s event is the first at the Coliseum, having previously been hosted at Hickory Hall Polo Club in Whitestown where 2,000 plus fans have come. This year, we’re working to break all records and can’t wait to watch teams compete for the Indiana Farmers Insurance Cup,” said Golightly.
