Friends of Epworth raise funds for Epworth rehabilitation
The Friends of Epworth hosted another fantastic race day this year. With thanks to the generosity of guests, over $120,000 was raised which will support the care of patients, including jockeys, in rehabilitation.
Despite the wintery conditions, the room was full of colour and excitement with over 450 guests dressed in their finest racing attire. Hosted by jockey Casey Bruce, the Friends of Epworth Race Day proved once again to be one of her favourite times of the year.
Matthew Hyland, Executive Officer of the Victorian Jockey’s Association continued,
We are grateful to the ongoing support of our major sponsors GJK Facility Services, Victorian Racing Club and Tabcorp, without who this event would not be possible.
