At UPMC Health Plan Half-Time, guests are invited onto the UPMC Field to “stomp the divots.” Guests are encouraged to take a commemorative photo at the UPMC Health Plan photo booth in their Polo Classic Attire. Additional activities include betting with touts, food trucks, silent auction, live music from Brassholio and Jason Kendall, and children’s activities, including pony rides, games, and a meet and greet with the Sewickley Hunt hounds.

“The Family House Polo Match is a time-honored tradition for the organization and the larger Pittsburgh
community. I’m thrilled to be able to host over 2,000 attendees at Hartwood Acres,” says Executive Director, Jennifer March. “All funds raised on September 10, 2022 allow Family House to keep room rates low while providing a ‘home away from home’ for the thousands of families who stay with us each year.
