The George F. Hempt Memorial MS Polo Match is a unique, fun-filled, two-day event which supports the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. We would like to thank the Hempt Family for their generous support of the Society and hosting the polo match. Max Hempt, president of Hempt Brothers, Inc., enjoys welcoming new fans to the sport of polo. He tells everyone it’s like hockey on horseback.
