RACE DAY FUN 2013
Our 2013 Charity Race Day saw us blessed once again with spectacular weather and with a record attendance of 181 it was a great day for all those attending. Because of the continued generosity of our supporters, ABF raised a total of $23,500 which will enable us to support more children with Cerebral Palsy and their families throughout Queensland.
Everyone got into the spirit of the day by purchasing raffle tickets and some entered into fierce bidding wars to secure one of our fantastic auction items. A special mention must once again go to the Argus family (owners of the Plough Inn) who again donated $10,000 to the charity! Our gratitude also goes to Dr. Sharon Ewing of Ferny Dental Care for her donation of $5,000 towards our race day for a third year running.
We would also like to thank our engaging guest speaker, Sandy Porter, who provided an insight into life as a young adult with Cerebral Palsy and how a collapsible wheelchair has provided him freedom and independence amongst his mates
The success of the charity's race day is not only attributed to the generosity of those that attend, but largely dependent on those individuals and businesses that continue to support ABF by donating raffle prizes and auction items. These wonderful donors are acknowledged below (please support them!), and listed with all of our supporters on our Sponsors page. We’d especially like to acknowledge Stephen Lee, Manager of The Exchange Hotel who always goes above and beyond to ensure ABF are never short of auction or raffle items at our race days.
To those who attended Race Day 2013, thank you for YOUR support and sharing our day at Doomben and we look forward to seeing you all next year! Don't forget to check out the fashionista photos from our fabulous day on our Gallery page (and special thanks to photographer Andrew Yeo for the great pics)!
