Polo in the Pines Honorees Bond and Buoy Us

Polo in the Pines is an annual charity polo event founded by Tina Fowler and family, held on October 5 and 6,  benefiting Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, for pediatric cancer research. The seventh annual event and will be full of amazing additions such as a Veuve Cliquot sponsorship, Audi partnership, Atlanta Polo Brunch Festival, vendor market and much more. Lifestyle Publications has been a proud sponsor since the event’s inception.

This year, the event ambassador is Madison Williams, a talented young singer/songwriter. Last year, the Polo in the Pines honoree was 5-year-old, Caroline Brewer. Madison and Caroline met in 2017 and formed an instant bond. Madison was the first girl Caroline met with a bald spot, and they both still have them. They are friends for life. 

While they have seen each other regularly at events since they met, their bond continues to grow. Those who know young Caroline understand that she doesn’t hold still for long. She will willingly climb up into your lap or let you hold her in your arms, but she wiggles away before long. When Madison holds her, she remains remarkably calm.

Madison and Caroline both have Grade III Anaplastic Ependymoma, a rare type of brain cancer, with only 50 cases reported each year.

Madison believes that there is a purpose to everything — every journey, every joy, and every hardship.   Madison also started a charity called Purpose, founded to improve pediatric cancer patient’s lives. She is a talented songwriter and singer and has released her own album. Her hope is to record and produce one of her new songs, debut it at Polo in the Pines and raise additional funds for pediatric brain cancer research through her music. Join us in celebrating this remarkable young woman!
