Get in the pink for ladies day

THE Coffs Harbour Racing Club is gearing up to host their annual 'Ladies Day' races on January 13, and will again use the day to raise awareness for Breast Cancer on the Coffs Coast.

"This will be the second year that the Coffs Harbour Racing Club, has used this fun family race day to raise awareness," club CEO Russ Atkinson said.

The race day, a week on Sunday, will raise funds for the Young and the Breastless Trust, Coffs Harbour Regional Cancer Services and the North Coast Cancer Institute.

And the club has already raised $10,000 in sponsorship.

Hospitality packages are still available, but we are told, selling fast, so get your day sorted by contacting the club on 6652 1488.

The day will have a totally pink theme (from the champagne right through to the saddle cloths).

And a feature will sure to be the Fashions on the Field with thousands of dollars worth of prizes to be won.

Kids will not miss out as there's a jumping castle, face painting, games and giveaways to keep them amused.

On the track, good fields are expected for the seven-race TAB program, in particular the feature race of the day the 2008 Sky Gold Cup worth $25,000.

So if you're a business, group or organisation who would like to be involved in this fantastic fundraiser for good causes, contact the club now on 6652 1488 for further information.
