Wellington, FL – March 12, 2014 – The Gay Polo League (GPL) is pleased to announce The Wellington Preservation Coalition will return to sponsor The 5th Annual International Gay Polo Week presented by Cobble Court Interiors held April 2-6, 2014 at Grand Champions Polo Club in Wellington, FL. The popular event is a highlight of the winter equestrian season.
The Wellington Preservation Coalition is a group of Wellington residents committed to preserving and maintaining the character, nature and quality of life in the Village of Wellington.
“The Coalition is all about supporting our unique and diverse community,” said Executive Director, Tom Wenham, a former Wellington mayor. “The GPL and this event have had a direct, positive impact on human rights in Wellington and we support it whole-heartedly.”
The mission of the Wellington Preservation Coalition is to be a voice for all residents to protect the community’s assets. These assets include parks, open spaces, equestrian areas – all created through Wellington’s history of strong planning, zoning and building codes. The Wellington Preservation Coalition supports the many causes and differing interests found in the community’s arts, environmental, business and sports groups.
“We look forward to a beautiful day in the sun, colorful and creative tailgates and fast-paced polo action!” said Wenham.
