Ambassador Jawad Participates in Green Cup Polo Match

On July 18, Ambassador Said T. Jawad joined Washington, D.C.'s most green to support and participate in the Third Annual Green Cup Polo Match at the Capitol Polo Club in Poolesville, Maryland.

The Green Cup was established to promote conservation and protection by bringing together committed parties to show support of those prominent organizations that work to solve today's environmental issues.

The Green Cup is also one of the only major social events in the Washington, D.C. Metro area that incorporates environmentally conscious practices into every step of the event planning process. The revenue generated from this event will support ACORE (American Council On Renewable Energy), EPIC (Equestrian Partners in Conservation) and EarthEcho International.

The event included several matches between local clubs and a special Celebrity Match during half-time featuring Phillipe Cousteau, son of the famous marine explorer Jacques Cousteau, and Ambassador Jawad. There was also a half-time show put on by the Rockville High School Pipe Band.
