VIRTUAL: ''Polo by Twilight'' The 41st Annual Palamountain Scholarship Benefit
Please note, the 2020 Polo by Twilight will be a virtual event on July 21 from 7:00pm-8:00pm. Join us for a celebration of the Anne T. Palamountain Scholarship Benefit and the presentation of the annual Scholar Award.
Registration is now open for the online event, which will be held from 7 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, July 21. Speakers will include celebrity polo player Leighton Jordan; Skidmore’s new president, Marc C. Conner; and Bruce Palamountain, son of Anne and Joseph Palamountain. The event will also recognize 2020 Palamountain Scholar Award recipient Naira Abdula ’20, who graduated from Skidmore with honors in May. Participants can also take part in a live auction and take advantage of takeout meal specials from Hattie’s and Longfellows.
Requests for financial aid have reached record highs, and event co-chairs Kristin Grosso ’91 and Yvonne McEachron hope the benefit will support efforts to ensure a Skidmore education remains accessible to all talented students, regardless of their financial circumstances.
The Anne T. Palamountain Scholar Award is presented each year to a student or recent graduate who has demonstrated leadership, service to others and a commitment to the larger good of society.
