2017 Corkhill Bros Pegasus Charity Race Day at Thoroughbred Park
What a day! Save the date for next year - Friday 22 June 2018
On Friday 23 June 2017, Pegasus saddled up to host our very first Race Day at Thoroughbred Park in Canberra. Men wore their best suits, ladies frocked up and the weather was just perfect!
Corkhill Bros were the generous naming rights sponsor for the day and also kindly donated gifts for the guests - light up pens so we can write in the dark, and some coffee mugs to keep us warm in winter.
Our Race Sponsors included; Corkhill Bros, Riverview Group, ACTSTREME Rendering, HVAC Canberra and Network Electrical Solutions. The three additional races were named in honour of our founder Bid Williams, a generous donor Marcus Quinlivan, and our dedicated Pegasus Volunteers!
Eight races were run and won, guests were treated to a three course meal and beverage package, and special guest auctioneer Tony Trpeski from Independent Property Group led punters through an auction which raised $2,050!
One of our longest serving volunteers Mike Crowe won the framed Corinne Marsland horse portrait in the raffle, all made possible by the hard work of two of our younger volunteers selling tickets - thanks to Sophie and Anna!
In total 140 guests attended across fourteen tables, with table sponsors including: YellowEdge, TechnologyOne, UXC Connect, United Legal, TEMPLar Employment and Training, Huon Contractors, ProCare Group and Clayton Utz.
A special mention goes out to Clayton Utz who kindly sponsored a table for parents of Pegasus participants and volunteers - this crew has never had such a fun day out!
ActewAGL donated the punters club competition prizes of a insulated lunch bag with hand warmers, pens and drink bottles. Thanks for your ongoing support ActewAGL!
The inaugural Race Day was such a huge success that we've secured another one on Friday 22 June 2018 - save the date now!!
