Flemington gives kids Sporting Chance
19 Jul 2012 | Flemington will play host to Sporting Chance Community Raceday this Saturday, 21 July, raising much needed funds for the Bobby Skilton Outreach Programs to provide children with improved cancer care closer to home and their families.
A non-for-profit organisation formed by Australian cricketing great Mark Taylor, rugby league legend Reg Gasnier, Olympian Raelene Boyle and triple Brownlow medallist Bob Skilton, the Sporting Chance Cancer Foundation will be hosting a special luncheon featuring sporting heroes from the AFL, cricket and Rugby Union codes.
“As a long standing patron of the Sporting Chance Foundation, I am extremely excited about the Sporting Chance Community Raceday at Flemington,” Mr Skilton said.
“It will be a fantastic opportunity to not only raise funds for children fighting cancer, but also increase the awareness in Melbourne and Victoria of the foundation’s outstanding work.”
Individual tickets to the exclusive raceday luncheon can be purchased for $200 ($2000 for a table of 10), including a three-course lunch, beverages and private TAB facilities in Flemington’s Skyline Restaurant.
Racegoers attending Sporting Chance Community Raceday can experience behind-the-scenes tours of heritage listed Flemington, including the captivating Flemington Heritage Centre.
Children under 15 (accompanied by an adult) are offered free racecourse admission while youngsters can enjoy free activities on the lawn, including pony rides, games and craft.
