The award recognizes an individual or company who supports the sport of polo and helps ensure it’s legacy and continuation here in America. Rafaelian partnered with Newport Polo to construct the Alex and Ani Pavilion, which replaced the one destroyed in a 2011 fire.
They also praise her reinvestment in the community, partnerships with local businesses, and constant support and inspiration to others. She encourages all to celebrate their individuality and inner beauty through the power of positivity.
We are thrilled for her to receive this honor and look forward to working with Newport International Polo Series in the future!
