Prince William scores winning goal for BMG at GCC Polo Cup

Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, scored the winning goal for the BMG team at the 21st GCC Polo Cup, leading the BMG team to a 7-5 victory against Cambridge County Polo Club.
The friendly polo match between Saudi and British teams captained by Prince William, took place in Cambridge on July 10, in the presence of prominent businessmen and dignitaries from both Saudi Arabia and the UK, including Prince Abdul Aziz bin Faisal bin Abdul Majid.
Prince William started playing polo at the age of 10 with both his father and grandfather.
The BMG GCC Polo Cup was born of a conversation between Prince Charles and Basil Al-Ghalayini, CEO of BMG Financial Group, in the 90s. On realizing a need for more cultural and sporting interaction between Saudi Arabia and the UK, Al-Ghalayini took it upon himself to create a platform on which this could take place, whilst simultaneously supporting noble causes.
The annual event reaffirms the strength of Saudi-British relations on social, cultural and charitable levels. BMG Financial Group, through its charitable arm, BMG Foundation, organized this event, the proceeds of which are used to support charitable organizations in both Saudi Arabia and the UK.
Funds from a concert at King’s College Chapel, organized by BMG, on July 9 will support Syria Relief, a charity providing medical aid and supplies to Syrian children in refugee camps.
Two young Syrian musicians, Riad Nicolas and Mariela Shaker, performed a mix of Eastern and western classical music at the event.

Dodge supports women drivers in KSA

Dodge has unveiled a dedicated campaign to empower women drivers. Focused on social media and digital platforms, the campaign features a special video for the Dodge brand entitled “She Roars.”
With women driving in the Kingdom now a reality, there may still be some lingering questions in the minds of female drivers: “Am I ready? Is it really happening? Can I change the norm? Can I do it? Am I ready?” These questions are answered in the Dodge “She Roars” video with the empowering message — “I am Ready”!
Dodge’s campaign will highlight the advanced performance, features, technology and safety innovations available in Dodge vehicles that will make women drivers confident that they are indeed ready for the road.
Supported with a free pickup and delivery service and roadside assistance package available only to female drivers choosing any model from the Dodge lineup, United Motors Company (UMC) — the sole distributor for Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Fiat Professional, Jeep, Ram and Mopar in Saudi Arabia — is offering a warm welcome to women looking to hit the road.
UMC’s roadside assistance package, also accessible via a dedicated mobile app, offers immediate support should there be any one of a wide range of common issues, including battery failure, flat tires, running out of fuel, traffic accidents and mechanical/electrical problems.
The Dodge range — Charger, Challenger, Durango and Neon — offers features such as LED headlamps, state-of-the-art TorqueFlite eight-speed transmissions, dual exhausts, leather wrapped steering wheels plus Alcantara and Laguna leather finishes. Among the many available safety features are blind spot and cross path detection, rear parking sensors, rear view camera and advanced air bag systems.
