The 8th annual Polo and Jazz soiree is returning to Brandywine, Maryland this summer, bringing live music, celebrity guests, delicious cuisine and creative drinks. The highly-anticipated polo matches will be held on September 15, from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Hennessey Creek in Brandywine.

The luxury event benefits the Black Mental Health Alliance, a non-profit organization focused on supporting and sponsoring mental health resources in minority communities.

Over 2,000 guests are expected to attend the outdoor polo and jazz event which will include exotic car displays, caviar bumping, cigars and summer vibes.

“We believe in the integration of entertainment and philanthropy to create exquisite memorable experiences, "said Founder Susan Smallwood of Grandiosity Events. “Polo is one way that I bring culture to the cultures with grand experiences. Ooh la la!”

In addition to introducing thousands of people to the oldest equestrian sport, Smallwood is also the first and only Black woman to own a caviar brand, La Grande Caviar.

Each year, VIPs and celebrity guests attend the Polo and Jazz event. This year, the guest list includes Congresswoman Stacey Plaskett, delegate to the US House of Representatives from the US Virgin Islands, retired Major General Linda L. Singh, the first woman and first African American to lead the Maryland National Guard, and retired Army Lieutenant General R Scott Dingle, the 45th Surgeon General of the United States Army.

Mistress of ceremony Tosin Fakile from DC News Now, and 7-time Emmy Award-winning FOX 5 anchor Shomari Stone are also scheduled to attend the soiree. This year, the event is being hosted by Shontel Greene, owner of Nursez R U, one of the largest employers of healthcare workers in Maryland.
