Polo for Life, Inc., founded by Terrie Mooney and Brandon Phillips, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising funds to help support pediatric cancer patients and their families.
Since 2014, Terrie and Brandon created Polo for a Purpose, a charity polo match and luncheon to benefit the local Palm Beach chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Brandon, a childhood non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma survivor, is passionate about giving back to the community that supported him. To date, Polo for a Purpose has raised more than $1.2M to support LLS’s efforts to find a cure for blood cancers.
Terrie and Brandon’s vision is to expand the event to other cities and support local organizations by helping to fund their Child Life programs or other programs offering financial support to families whose lives are impacted by cancer
This year’s proceeds will benefit the Pediatric Oncology Support Team in West Palm Beach, Kids Cancer Foundation in Royal Palm Beach, Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital Foundation in Hollywood, Miami Cancer Institute in Miami and the local chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
