The GHANTOOT A – Golden Tulip Al Jazeera Resort Polo Team beat Ghantoot B 3-2 in the UAE Red Crescent Charity Exhibition Polo match that was held last Friday to raise awareness about orphans being cared for in shelters run by the organisation. The match at Ghantoot Racing & Polo Club was organised by GRPC and held under the patronage of HH Sheikh Falah bin Zayed Al Nahyan. Year after year GRPC have been extending an arm to raise awareness for various charities within the nation’s shores by hosting special polo days at their state-of-the-art facility on the border of Abu Dhabi. And Friday was no different as a large number of people came together to celebrate the sport of polo and the noble cause of supporting orphans.
GRPC is run under the patronage of HH Sheikh Falah bin Zayed Al Nahyan who is fully committed to supporting all charitable organisations in the UAE through the club, which was set up by his late father HH Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. Ahmad Al Nuaimi, general manager of GRPC, hailed the match as a big success and said: “Supporting causes like the UAE Red Crescent Society is closest to our hearts at Ghantoot. “It is a big accomplishment to be able to put smiles on the faces of the orphans through initiatives that benefit them. We are proud and honoured at Ghantoot to be supporting our society and praise the management and staff at the UAE Red Crescent Society for their continued efforts. “We always believe that supporting charitable organisations like Red Crescent gives orphans the chance to have a brighter future.”
