There seemed to be one question on everyone's mind as they made their way around Hartwood Acres on Sept. 7.

“How in the world do you learn how to play polo?”

Family House welcomed 2,000 to the 'burbs for the 30th annual Polo Match, where Howard Hanna Real Estate and #1 Cochran faced off in representative fashion via the Virginia International Polo Club and the Potomac Polo Club, respectively.

Hard to find someone who was a first timer during this well-known event, which saw the likes of David Andrews (with Ann Clontz) carrying on the tradition of emceeing the afternoon.

“I did miss one ... but just one in 30 years,” he said. “Each one gets better and better and bigger and bigger.”

Basking in a record sponsorship of $212K, the event drew the likes of Family House director Bob andLee Ann Howard, board chair Glen Feinberg, Hoddy and Mary Anne Hanna, Rob andChristina Cochran, Julie Hughes and daughter Katie Hughes, Susan Krol, Tim McVay and David Bush, and chairwoman Helen Wylie.

“It's home, it's Pittsburgh. I'm like a child. ... I love it,” Wylie said.

Team Howard Hanna snagged the cup.
