With a commitment to community, excellence and growth, luxury real estate brand, Engel & Völkers California, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica show their devotion to improving the lives of disadvantaged children by sponsoring the 9th Annual Safety Harbor Kids (SHK) Polo Classic in Los Angeles.
Founded by John Williams, who was left parentless at the age of nine, the Malibu based non-profit organization aims to enrich the lives of local orphans, foster, and homeless children through an array of educational and personal growth programs. Ranging from career development to music and arts education, the opportunities offered through Safety Harbor Kids teaches its children how to lead happy and successful lives.
“As a father of two young children, SHK’s mission deeply resonates with me,” says Raphael Barragán, License Partner of Engel & Völkers Beverly Hills. “Establishing a solid foundation and a positive environment during a child’s adolescence is crucial to the future of their lives.”
The event will be held on the afternoon of September 10th at the historic Will Rogers Polo Grounds. Beverly Hills Bentley, The British-American Business Council and Southern California Magazine are among the other supporters sponsoring the event. Dressed in white and boasting their best hats, guests will enjoy gourmet food and beverages, polo matches, test drives of the new Bentley Botega and a live performances by Grammy Award winners, Albert Lee and Peter Asher.
“Incorporating philanthropy into our regular agendas is important to every member of our team,” explained Engel & Völkers Santa Monica License Partner, Sandra Miller. “It is a pleasure and an honor to be working with Safety Harbor Kids. We are all looking incredibly forward to the event.”
