The preps were in full effect at the Harriman Cup. There was tons of Lily Pulitzer, Brooks Brothers, Vineyard Vines and Ralph Lauren.  There were even preppy vendors, such as JP Crickets, who makes bespoke Prince Albert slippers for men and women. To keep the energy up, attendees were able to sample Frava, the first naturally caffeinated juice.

The event ended in a full swinging dance party with a DJ. The attendees danced the evening away regardless if their team won. However, UVa had bragging rights as their alumni team won the match. But who could be upset when there are drinks and dancing involved?

Through the efforts of the Harriman Cup organization, over $700,000 has been raised for the schools’ undergraduate polo teams. If you have never been to the Harriman Cup, I implore you to attend next year. It is both fun and entertaining. Also, it’s a great way to experience a polo match in New York.
