A central Victorian polo club will host a star-studded match to help raise funds for sick children.
Mingela Polo Club will host its first TLC for Kids match with the likes of Australian polo captain Ruki Bailleu, AFL CEO Gill McLachlan and top Victorian player Inge Burke ready to get down to business.
MPC owners Ben Kay and Tolga Kumova were more than willing to open-up their private club to host the match.
"There's no better event to open up our pitch to the public," Kay said.
"It's for such a worthy cause - with all profits going to benefit the kids."
TLC for Kids was founded in 1998 by Tim Conolan after he identified "a gap" in existing services for sick children and wanted to do something about it.
"We're absolutely delighted to be involved in the first ever TLC for Kids Polo raising money to help sick kids and their families cope with the challenges of everyday life with illness," Conolan said.
"This is an exciting time for us and we're looking forward to announcing more details in due course."
There will be plenty of action and entertainment both on and off the pitch.
"There are plenty of people in Victoria who play polo - it's such a unique sport," Kay said.
"It's an adrenaline-packed sport played by people with a love for horses.
"Polo is one of the very few team sports played on horses and revolves from farming communities, so it's great to host it in country Victoria."

Polo is an equestrian sport with teams of four players per side.
The object of the game is to use a wooden mallet to hit a small hard ball - with the ultimate aim is to outscore the opposing team.
The TLC for Kids Polo match will be held on Saturday March 23 at the Mingela Polo Club at Drummond.
