Pony Up: The Villa Collection to Sponsor Charity Polo Match

The Villa Collection at The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach, will serve as the title real estate sponsor for the World Polo League Beach Polo from April 23rd to April 25th on Miami Beach. Some of the world’s most premiere polo players will be on-hand for the six chukker match, including Nacho Figueras, Nic Roldan, Melissa Ganzi, Alejandro Novillo Astrada, Juan Bollini Jr., Juan Martín Nero, and Barto & Jeta Castagnola, Grant Ganzi and Tito Gaudenzi.

The matches will benefit Give Back for Special Equestrians, a nonprofit organization based in Miami that provides special needs children and veterans with disabilities with therapeutic horseback rides and scholarships.

“It gives us great pleasure to welcome back World Polo League Beach Polo, Miami Beach and the sport of kings to Miami Beach. The city enjoys a rich storied past dating back to the 1930’s when Carl Fisher played with other Miami Beach residents like Harvey Firestone and Alfred duPont on the grounds of the Nautilus Hotel just steps from the new villas,” says Andy Ashwal, vice president of GFI Development Company. “We are pleased to continue the tradition and incorporate our corporate philanthropic culture by helping some very special equestrians in the process.”

Consisting of 15 luxurious single-family homes, the Villa Collection at The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Miami Beach feature interior and exterior designs by Piero Lissoni. Starting at $4.37 million, the villas feature 3-to 5- bedroom floor plans, including private terraces, infinity pools and unobstructed views of Miami’s skyline and beachfront in one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in the area.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
