FOLSOM, La -  In the green countryside, surrounded by horses, they're burying a bottle of Bulleit Bourbon.

WGNO News with a Twist features guy Wild Bill Wood asks the question, why?

The answer is.  It's a tradition in the south to bring good luck, including good weather.

It's usually done for a wedding.  This time it's for a polo match that's coming up October 8 at Summergrove Farms in Folsom, Louisiana.

And here's what the website says it's all about:

This unique fundraising event boasts over 1,200 patrons in attendance annually. Now in its 21st year, the Northshore’s “Premier Fall Event” serves as the primary fundraiser of the Junior League of Greater Covington. Support for the Harvest Cup Polo Classic allows the JLGC to impact our community through our many projects – such as the  Project Homecoming, Project Prom, Girls’ Health Day Programming and many more!

In addition to the exciting polo matches, you can expect fabulous food and beverages from over twenty regional restaurants, specialty libations, live entertainment, silent auctions, a VIP experience, and more!

Each year, we strive to improve our guests’ experience at Polo, and make each year better than the one before. We have many exciting changes coming for 2017! We are expanding the VIP Experience to allow each guest access to the best of Polo. Every attendee will have access to specialty bars, signature restaurants, a cigar bar, massages, and more! Our generous food vendors will be spread throughout the field so our guests do not have to walk very far to enjoy a great bite to eat.

We invite you to our 21st annual Harvest Cup Polo Classic, where you can take the time during this fun event to learn more about our members and our community projects. Guests at this year’s Harvest Cup Polo Classic will be able to meet representatives from our 2017 Community Assistance Grant beneficiary organizations, who will be seated at our new “Polo With A Purpose Table”. This is an excellent opportunity to meet the leaders of these non-profits and learn how the work of the Junior League of Greater Covington directly impacts these organizations.
