The Madison Hotel celebrated the first anniversary of its re-opening in September of 2003 with a champagne and caviar reception and polo tournament on the National Mall on September 12. The Madison Hotel Polo Team, led by captain Dave Pollin and polo pro Charles Muldoon faced-off against the Carlyle Hotel Polo Team, led by former manager of the Ritz Carlton Hotel and current general manager of The Carlyle Hotel in New York and team captain, James McBride. The Carlyle team put up a valiant effort, but the Madison team emerged victorious. Richard Eidman and Mark Phillips of Porsche of Arlington sponsored the “Best Playing Pony Award” and the “Most Valuable Player Award,” which was awarded to McBride. They also presented a check in the amount of $5,000 to Many Hats Institute, a non-profit that supports various charities to improve the quality of life for youth worldwide.
