Hundreds choosing to spend Father's Day taking in what's become an annual tradition at a local winery: the Pink Ribbon Polo Classic.

Lots of dads broke out their pink shirts, lawn chairs and blankets to bring the family out to King Family Vineyards for the annual event to benefit local breast cancer care and research.

"It's definitely a fun event to come out to and enjoy the polo, enjoy the family atmosphere and a great place to be around with kids and family," said Jack Crombie with his wife and two kids, who have attended the event a few years in a row.

The event included about 20 boutique vendors, the polo match between Team King and Team Flow and wine tasting all day.

The Pink Polo Classic raised nearly $35,000 last year and organizers expect they beat that number this year.
