Raffle Draw of Race names – Saturday 11 June

Win Both Business Exposure and a Hospitality Package

Each business is invited to attend the lucky draw for the eight prizes of a race name and reserved table with hospitality at the 11 June race meeting. The draw will take place on or about Thursday 12 May after close of business at a Bream Bay venue to be determined.

Prizes are drawn in reverse order of the stake money allocated to each race – there are 2 x $35,000; 5 x $30,000; and 1 x $15,000 valued races.

With the raffle draw a month prior to the event, each business will have ample time to plan for the day and invite guests if they have won a hospitality table. All businesses, subject to final numbers, can buy additional tickets if they wish to build the numbers in their group.

This has been common practice in previous years as we can cater for 120 seated guests in the Bonecrusher and Surfbreak Lounges with elevated viewing of the races.

Everyone gets to celebrate with lunch and hospitality in the function rooms on the raceday with a minimum of two guests per business PLUS the eight prize winning teams receive significant promotional benefits. Full details of prizes and entry by clicking on the PDF at the top of the page.

Each business race name receives national promotion through Trackside television and the racing and betting media outlets.
