THE Tasmanian Racing Club raised more than $20,000 to support the important work of the National Breast Cancer Foundation at the annual Aviso TAS Pink Cup Race Day at Ladbrokes Park Elwick in May.

The annual event is the biggest fundraising event on the Tasmanian Racing Club’s racing calendar and was well supported, with more than 250 people attending the fundraising lunch.

“Over the past twelve years, this signature event has raised in excess of $250,000 to support the important work of the National Breast Cancer Foundation,” Tasmanian Racing Club chief executive officer Brendan Blomeley said.

The National Breast Cancer Foundation is committed to fund research to achieve the goal of zero deaths from breast cancer by 2030.

“As the National Breast Cancer Foundation receives no government funding, it is only through the generous donations and support from members of the community who attend events like the annual Pink Cup Race Day, that this goal can be realised,” Mr Blomeley said.

During the day, items including a Tasmania JackJumper corporate box experience, stud service fees from Gee Gee Stud, Armidale Stud, Grenville Stud, Brooklyn Park and Kingsley Park, as well as a 5 per cent share in a TASBRED Filly donated by Tasmanian Bloodstock and Brunton Racing, were auctioned by Hank Petrusma.

Other silent auction items were generously donated by many Hobart businesses.

“The generosity of Tasmanians continues to inspire, and the Tasmanian Racing Club was proud to partner with our many generous sponsors to make this day an outstanding success as we raise money to help eliminate breast cancer,” Mr Blomeley said.
