High goals

Anne Palamountain, former Skidmore first lady, awards the Palamountain Cup to the winning polo team—while helping raise some $170,000 for Skidmore’s Palamountain Scholarship Fund. This year the annual “polo lunch” benefit, co-chaired by restaurateur Stephen Sullivan ’78 and artist Jill Fishon-Kovachick ’81, was moved to the cooler evening hours, much to the delight of humans and horses alike. Along with world-class polo, the 500 benefactors and guests enjoyed live music, an auction, a raffle—and the opportunity to be part of the gala Saratoga summer season.
