LOS ANGELES (May 25, 2022) – Teen Cancer America (TCA), the national non-profit
founded by rock icons Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of The Who, will be hosting
Rock n’ Polo III, its third annual polo event benefiting teens and young adults fighting
cancer. The day of fast-paced polo action, including entertainment, dining and
fundraising, will take place on Saturday, June 11 at 11 a.m. PT at the Will Rogers Polo
Club in Los Angeles.
Located in Pacific Palisades, the historic Will Rogers Polo Club is home to the only
remaining polo field in L.A. This special event will raise funds and awareness for the
TCA mission to develop specialized facilities and services for teens and young adults
with cancer. Previous star supporters and celebrity attendees have included recording
artist Harry Hudson, producer and actor Justin Baldoni (Jane the Virgin), actor Edward
Akrout (Killing Eve), American Idol alumni Trenyce, actress Neetu Chandra and many others.
“We are delighted to bring this exciting polo match back to Will Rogers in support of
Teen Cancer America, a cause close to my heart,” says event co-host Grace Mellis,
TCA Advisory Member and polo player. “This event is a perfect, entertaining family day
out with horses and live music! What could be better? I hope everyone will join us for a
fun party with a purpose."
VIP admission and tables remain available for purchase here and media are
encouraged to attend.
The event will include a champagne divot stomp, lawn activities like cornhole and how
to swing a polo mallet, live music entertainment, henna hand painting and a magician to
delight both kids and adults alike. Throw on your sun hats, sundresses and dapper bow
ties and come join TCA for a day of polo and lunch to help provide critically important
services and dedicated facilities for young cancer patients. All ages are welcome.

About Teen Cancer America
Teen Cancer America helps hospitals and healthcare professionals bridge the gap
between pediatric and adult oncology care by supporting hospitals and outpatient
facilities in the development of specialized units and programs for this age group. TCA
brings together physicians and allied healthcare professionals in both pediatric and
adult oncology. Age-targeted care for this population is necessary for medical and
appropriate psychosocial development. Outcomes associated with some cancers that
target this age group have not improved in over 30 years. Teens and young adults with
cancer are long overdue for an upgrade and TCA can hopefully light the fire in
America’s health systems. For more information, contact Michelle Aland
