Cuban American artist Rolando Diaz will be on hand to unveil his two polo inspired works of art.  Affectionately referred to as simply Ro, Diaz has traveled the world with his art and is known for his giving heart. With his family having fled a communist Cuba, he learned early on that many will go through life with little or nothing they can call their own. Ro live paints for charity and has been joined on stage by celebrities such as musician Michael Martin Murphy, Olympiad Gold Medalist Earl Young and 1st Lady Laura Bush.
