Jockeys, industry executives and footballers gathered for a Charity Golf Day and Dinner.

More than 104 golfers, racing enthusiasts, AFL players and sponsors of the Melbourne Racing Club gathered at Kingston Heath Golf Club last month to raise money for the MRC Foundation’s first annual Charity Golf Day and Dinner.  

The Schweppes team, led by their State Sales Manager Adam Quince, took out overall honours on the day ahead of the Codeware and Foley Durham teams.

While jockey Damien Oliver – who plays off a single-digit handicap – was expected to star on the green, Melbourne FC Footballers Jack Watts, Bernie Vince and Chris Dawes surprised everyone by showing they may have a career on the fairway after football.

More than $30,000 was raised for the MRC Foundation thanks to some spirited bidding during the dinner auction including a VIP Caulfield Cup experience selling for $10,600. The package features direct helicopter flights to and from the racecourse and a lunch in the Committee Room. 

“We are thrilled. It was great to see so many people in the sports industry enjoy the golf and show their charitable side to help raise money for a good cause,” MRC CEO and MRC Foundation board member Brodie Arnhold said.

The money will go towards supporting the Foundation’s three key areas:
– Support for the MRC Foundation’s charity partners including OzHarvest, National Jockey’s Trust and Down Syndrome Victoria;
– Helping charitable and community organisations to address societal issues; and
– Supporting local organisations in the communities around our three racecourses (Caulfield, Mornington and Ladbrokes Park) and 13 Pegasus Leisure Group venues.

AFL journalist Mike Sheahan showed off his skills winning the ‘nearest the pin’ competition on the Par 3 (hole 5).
This event was proudly presented by Ladbrokes and associate presenter Taylor Made.

The Melbourne Racing Club is a not for profit members club with over 25,000 members across racing and venue businesses. They conduct 68 race meetings annually across three premier Victorian racetracks, Caulfield, Mornington and Ladbrokes Park. 

MRC Foundation is the recently established charitable arm of the Melbourne Racing Club.
