This Saturday was the closing day at those beloved Polo fields in Bridgehampton. What will we do without all of the weekly photos coming from those sartorially-correct crowds out east? Last weekends Polo event was sponsored by Hamptons Magazine and the HRS Princess foundation with OnDa Ground music's special live performance of the song “If Not For Grace” for charity. Sixty percent of the proceeds from the sales of the song online benefit various children's charities including, children international, Darfur now and others.
