Andrew Rivkin and team at the Toronto Polo Club

Andrew and Mark Rivkin are proud to support and sponsor charitable polo tournaments as well. As an avid polo player, Andrew sponsored the Polo for Heart tournament with his team Rivkin Asset Management in 2009. The tournament features world class polo competition in the name of charity, and it has helped raise millions of dollars for heart and stroke care and research around Toronto. The Rivkins have also supported the annual Polo for Cancer tournament which helps raise funds for cancer patients every year in Ontario. Other generous charitable polo events include Polo for Health and Polo for the Cure. Learn more about playing polo for a cause HERE.

Stevenson Memorial Foundation

In August of 2008 Andrew Rivkin also participated in the the Stevenson Memorial Hospital Benefit charity polo tournament, and the Rivkins have always been strong proponents of the hospital.

The Stevenson Memorial Hospital is located in the community of Alliston, in Ontario. Situated just north of Mark Rivkin’s hometown of Toronto, this fully accredited hospital is in the heart of central Ontario. The Stevenson Memorial Hospital serves as the primary hospital for an area that includes Adjala-Tosorontio, Canadian Forces Base Borden, Essa, Innisfil and New Tecumseth.

Today the hospital, in partnership with Southlake Regional Health Centre in Newmarket, Ontario, is in a period of growth and opportunity. Stevenson Memorial offers a wide range of medical and surgical services with a team of dedicated healthcare professionals developing and building on a long-standing reputation of excellence, while continuing to strive to understand and exceed the need of patients.
