Newly formed Polo Women’s Club looks to help area charities

Posted:

CUMMING, Ga. — The Polo Women’s Club, founded by Perrie Tucker, held their second monthly meeting at the Polo Golf and Country Club in Cumming on Friday, Feb. 1.

The meeting featured representatives from No Longer Bound Ministries of Cumming.

Tucker said she started the club as a way to help raise funds for programs like No Longer Bound.

“I was involved in a similar program when I lived in Gwinnett County and decided to start one here when I moved,” Tucker said.

The Polo Women’s Club is open to all residents and members of Polo Golf and Country Club, and Tucker encourages friends to attend.

Polo Women’s Club will be a LLC 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization and social club, Tucker said.

“All of our fundraisers and events will benefit charitable organizations within our community, and I’m very excited to see the response,” Tucker said.

About 15 women attended the meeting, had lunch and listened to the featured speakers from No Longer Bound.

The first Polo Women’s Club meeting last month featured guest speaker Kathy Pace of Gabby’s Olive Branch.

“It was huge success,” Tucker said.

Tucker plans to have guest speakers from various charitable organizations speak at future events.

“We’ll have the organizations speak about the efforts they do in the community to inform of their programs and help us decide who we are interested in supporting,” Tucker said.

Polo Women’s Club luncheons will be held the first Friday of every month except for holidays such as spring break, and will always feature lunch and a guest speaker.

The next meeting takes place Friday, March 1, and will feature an Origami Owl jewelry designer and the fitness instructor at the Polo Club as guest speakers.
