Fundraiser will benefit Ukrainians


The Jamestown Ukraine Relief Project is hosting a tailgate party at the Newport International Polo Grounds during its all-charity day to raise humanitarian relief for the country that was invaded by Russia in February 2022.

Gates open at 3 p.m. and the classic six-chukker match will begin at 5 p.m. Admission is $20 by e-mailing janet_ skinner@cox.net to benefit the local nonprofit charity. Visitors are invited to bring chairs, blankets and picnic food. The designated area for supporters of the Jamestown charity to watch the match will be marked with Ukrainian flags.

The sixth annual all-charity day invites 501(c)3 organizations to host an afternoon for their supporters with live polo action in a convivial outdoor atmosphere. The aim of the Jamestown group is three-fold. The group sponsors events to raise money for rebuilding efforts in Ukraine, provide support to Ukrainian refugees and sustain public awareness.
