Bridgehampton Polo, Summer 2011 Raises the Bar

The 15th Anniversary Season of Bridgehampton Polo kicked off on Saturday, July 23, 2011 at the famed Two Trees Farm. The match was pushed back an hour due to the sweltering heat, but that didn’t deter the Hampton social crowd from coming out to watch Yellow Cab take on White Birch. Hundreds came to cheer the two teams on including “Real Housewives of New York City” star Cindy Barshop, model Adriana Bachich, Blue Star Jets President Todd Rome, chair of the 53rd Annual Southampton Hospital Summer Gala Jean Shafiroff, Niche Media’s Jason Binn (pictured above), actor Malik Yoba, Russell Simmons (pictured above), Vanity Belles, who sang the national anthem, and designer Betsey Johnson and daughter Lulu who started the match off by throwing the ball onto the polo field.  Blue Star Jets and Sibarth Villa rentals, the ultimate luxury villa rentals in St. Barthelemy, celebrated their new partnership at the event.
