Friends of Epworth Race Day 2018

June 16 @ 12:00 pm - 5:30 pm

The annual Friends of Epworth Race Day was held on Saturday 16 June at Moonee Valley Racing Club.

400 guests attended the fundraising event and an incredible $50,000 was raised on the day.  These funds will be directly used toward innovation projects at Epworth via the Epworth Medical Foundation.

Group Chief Executive, Dr Lachlan Henderson gave an official welcome and MC female jockey Casey Bruce led the day’s proceedings. Guests heard from special guest speaker former jockey Brenton Primmer who took a fall in Warrnambool in 2006 and has been undergoing rehabilitation at Epworth.

The Race Day has been an annual event in the Friends of Epworth calendar for over eight years and in this time it has grown from 50 to 400 guests.  During the day guests enjoyed a three course meal in the Champions Room and watched the nine sponsored races with interest.

This exciting day was delivered under the leadership of Friends of Epworth President Gail Roche, Secretary Ronda Jenkins and their hard working committee.  Thank you to the team for their great fundraising efforts at this and other functions held throughout the year for Epworth. Thanks also to everyone who attended this special event.
