Atherton: Polo fundraiser for Lyme research on Sept. 11

 

Two teams of polo players named the Ticks and the Cures will face off at Menlo Circus Club in Atherton on Sunday, Sept. 11, to raise money for Lyme disease research.

Bay Area Lyme Foundation of Portola Valley is hosting its third Polo for Lyme charity luncheon from noon to 4 p.m. This year's goal is to raise $50,000.

Lyn Jason Cobb is sponsoring the event, which will start with a flag ceremony in memory of 9/11.

There will be a silent auction, prizes for the fanciest polo-themed hats and pants, and a champagne divot stomp to tamp down the playing field after hooves have made their mark.

The Stanford-based Lyme Disease Working Group will talk about its research, and the foundation's scientific team will be on hand, too. Lyme disease is caused by infected ticks biting people, and can lead to many health complications.

Go to bayarealyme.org to buy tickets at $100 apiece until Sept. 9.
