Mayor’s Charity Race Night to raise funds for Kids Health

Posted on: 05.06.2019

Wollondilly residents, businesses and friends will have the chance to back a winner at the Mayor’s Charity Race Night as they help raise funds for the Kids of Macarthur Health Foundation.

The invitations are out for an entertaining and worthwhile night at the races at Club Menangle on Saturday 20 July, from 5pm to 10.30pm, with all proceeds going to the significant children’s charity.

Launched in the year 2000, the Kids of Macarthur Health Foundation aims to purchase the most up-to-date paediatric medical equipment available to enhance the level of health care offered for young people locally.

The Foundation helps to fund equipment for the paediatric units at Campbelltown and Camden hospitals, including the Children’s Ward, Paediatric Ambulatory Care, Paediatric Emergency, Special Care Nursery, Child and Adolescent Mental Health, Maternity, Delivery and Post Natal Units, as well as supporting many children’s community health programs.

Mayor of Wollondilly, Matthew Deeth said, “I encourage everyone to bring along their families, their work colleagues and their friends and join me for a great night of entertainment for a worthy cause.”

“The Kids of Macarthur Health Foundation is dedicated to improving health care provision for every child living in our region. Having this equipment available locally often eliminates the need for parents to transport their sick children outside of the region to receive specialist health care,” he said.

Tickets for the event are $130 each, or $1200 for a table of 10.  They include entry, a race book, an all-inclusive buffet dinner and drinks, entertainment, racing action and prizes.

A variety of sponsorship opportunities are available to purchase a race, from platinum to bronze. Mayor Deeth has called on local businesses to consider getting involved this way to support a great cause.

“If businesses are unable to take out a sponsorship they may wish to donate prizes for the raffle and auction. Donations of in-kind support are also welcome and will be used for the major raffle on the evening,” he said.

Tickets for the event are on sale from Monday 10 June at www.trybooking.com/BDBVZ or through Wollondilly Shire Council. For more information, contact Council’s Events Officer on 4677 1100 or email events@wollondilly.nsw.gov.au
