Every year scores of Melbourne Cup functions are held across South West Sydney and choosing which one to attend is getting harder all the time.
This year it may be an easy decision if you support the work done by Kids of Macarthur Foundation and would like to see them continue doing their good deeds.
On Tuesday, November 6 – the day of the race that stops a nation – the first ever Kids of Macarthur Health Foundation – Melbourne Cup Sports Luncheon will be held.
It will be held in the Macarthur Room at Campbelltown RSL Club from 12 noon.
Denise McGrath, the CEO of Kids of Macarthur, said everyone was welcomed to attend what will be a wonderful 2018 Melbourne Cup luncheon to support the Kids of Macarthur.
Rugby league legend and foundation Wests Tigers coach Wayne “Junior’’ Pearce will be one of two MCs for the day.
Channel 10 sports reporter Emma Lawrence, sister of current Wests Tigers star Chris Lawrence will be sharing the MC duties with “Junior’’.
“We have invited a host of sporting personalities to be interviewed on the day and of course there is the race that stops the nation,’’ Mrs McGrath said.
Tickets are now on sale and are $100 each or $1,000 for a table of 10.
There will be lots of silent auction items, raffles, lucky door prizes along with race sweeps and a fashion show.
The ticket price includes champagne, beer, wine and soft drinks from 12.15pm to 3.30pm. A two course meal and seafood platters for each table is also part of the package.
