A Night at the Races Fundraising Gala Dinner

Taking over Mackay Turf Club in September A Night at the Races is the ultimate night of fun, excitement and fundraising for the Mackay Hospital Foundation.

Come and enjoy an entertaining evening filled with everything races-related; from Fashions on the Field, bookies, form guides, fun money, photos, live entertainment  and a big screen to watch the races.

On arrival guests will enjoy sparkling champagne as the sun sets over the pristine grounds of the Mackay Turf Club, before moving inside to enjoy an exquisite  two-course dinner crafted by Urban Kitchen.

Throughout the evening guests are invited to partake in activities including betting with fun money, showing off their fabulous race day style in the Fashions on the Field competition; and bidding on one of the many auction prizes.

To add to the genuine race atmosphere, every guest is provided with a special event form guide and fun money on arrival  to join the betting fun.

A race manager will be present on the night to explain how the races are run, where to find the odds for each horse (in the form guide), the rules for betting and how the overall winner will be decided.
