About This Event
Our final speaker for Brain Health Awareness Week (we know: we wish there were more, too) will be Dave Offen from the Polo Players’ Support Group. Dave will be joining us and featuring some really neat, cutting-edge technology used to help people with concussions.
You’ll just have to tune in on Facebook on Friday, March 19th at 12pm to see what it is!
Who is Dave? 🧠
David “Dave” Offen co-founded the Polo Players Support Group with Tony Coppola and Tim Gannon. Since its inception in 2002, just under $3,000,000 has been given to 89 members of the polo industry. An accomplished professional polo player from Toronto, Canada, Offen achieved a high handicap of 6 goals outdoors and 9 goals in the arena, traveling across the USA and to numerous countries including Argentina, England, Mexico, Australia, South Africa, Switzerland, and the Dominican Republic. Representing Canada on numerous occasions as a player and coach, Offen has competed in several FIP (World 14-goal tournaments) and coached multiple Canadian teams over his distinguished career in the industry.
“It is a privilege to serve as the Executive Director of the PPSG. Rob Walton’s accident inspired the entire polo community to come together to support many friends in need. It is extremely gratifying to help members of our polo family when they find themselves in very difficult times. None of this would be possible without a dedicated and caring Board of Directors, an amazing team of helpers and volunteers and the very generous sponsors and donors who make it all possible.”
