Rachel Wyatt, who won the Miss America’s Outstanding Teen Pageant, supported the Greenville Polo Classic to benefit the Greenville Hospital System’s Neurological Institute.
Miss America’s Outstanding Teen 2013, Rachel Wyatt, attended the first annual Greenville Polo Classic on October 21st at the Hopkins Historic Farm in Simpsonville, SC. The first ever Polo Classic was held to benefit the Greenville Hospital System’s Neurological Institute.
Rachel attended the luncheon held before the match to greet sponsors and dignified guests. She said, “I have never been to a polo match before and was clueless as to how the game was played, so learning about the game while attending this event was a real treat for me!”
Not only did she thoroughly enjoy watching the players while gaining a better understanding of polo, but Rachel also had the opportunity to meet with many South Carolina State Representatives and the Chairman of the Polo Classic Steering Committee.
In addition, Rachel was able to announce alongside a local television personality, WYFF news anchor John Cessarich, to thank the numerous sponsors that contributed to the event. “Thousands of dollars were raised for this worthwhile cause while a new sport was introduced to the Upstate, and I am glad that I was able to be a part of it,” Rachel said.
