KG Designs and Kathy G at “Polo at the Point” – Best Tent Design

The Gulf Coast’s most prestigious charity sporting event, “Polo at the Point” has taken place in Point Clear, Alabama, every autumn since 1988.  In doing so, they’ve raised millions of dollars to benefit cancer research and various children’s charities so naturally we were extremely excited when we were invited to take part in the 2012 edition.  Catering several of the weekend’s activities were a true thrill for us all, but the most outstanding moment for our team was when KG Designs was victorious at the very competitive “Designer Challenge” – winning the best tent design.
