The Lewis family (Dr. Fred and Mary Agnes Lewis and their children) will present the third annual Ten Oaks Cup Polo Match from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the family's farm, 6005 Ten Oaks Road, in Clarksville. Proceeds from the event will benefit Our Daily Bread, the Baltimore soup kitchen.

Gates open at noon. The national anthem will be sung on horseback. Two teams will play a full match (about 11/2 hours) and a half-time event includes riding without reins.

The cost for a table for eight or 10 people is $1,000. Sponsorships are available and advertising opportunities in the program booklet are also available. Information: Dennis M.
