Save The Date

Dear Friends of Hanover Charities,

The 2014 Sugar Cane Ball is going to step back to the 60's, and this year's Chairs, Nazee Klotz and Nan Brenninkmeyer, have gathered inspiration from an iconic event - the writer Truman Capote's famous Black and White Masked Ball. Capote's event was the epitome of elegance and saw the world's glitterati gather in New York's Plaza Hotel Ballroom.

It was said of Truman Capote's party--if you weren't invited, you had better leave town! Luckily that won't be the case on Saturday, February 15, 2014 when the gorgeous and glamorous of this era will gather in black & white, this time for a good cause, to support Hanover Charities and the many projects that depend on the proceeds of The Sugar Cane Ball.

Hanover Charities' 2013 Weekend of Fun Isn't over yet!

The fifth annual Chukka's Polo Tournament and Car Show is now March 2 at Chukka's polo field west of Sandy Bay. All proceeds go to Hanover Charities, so come help stomp in the divots and ladies, wear your best hats. Tickets are JAS$2,000 and are available at Tryall Club Boutique, Round Hill Hotel and Villas and Schatzie Boutique, Fairview (next to Napoli's) or at the gate.


Dear Friends of Hanover Charities,

We had a ball, literally, last weekend. An opening of a most interesting art show, a fabulous preview party at Manuela and James Goren's new seaside villa, and then glitter, disco, and hearty partying at our annual Sugar Cane Ball. This year's theme--A Night at Studio 54--was a huge hit.

And it all came off without a drop of rain...until last Sunday when it poured buckets. Chukka was forced to postpone its polo tournament until Saturday March 2. Read on and we hope you will attend and bring family and friends.
