Race Night Fundraiser

A Race Night is the most popular and profitable way to fundraise.

Race nights combine two of the most enjoyable social activities – a day at the races and a night out with friends. With a Race Night package, the client can expect to raise anything from €2,500 up to €10,000 and counting depending on their targets and obviously the work put in prior to the night.

How it works

Step 1: We provide you with a ‘STARTER PACK’ that includes personalised Colour Posters, Blank Race Sheets, Advertising Forms and a Master Booklet for your Organiser. The Blank Race Sheets and Advertising Forms should be distributed to all members in order to get local businesses involved through advertising and sponsorship, and to sell Horse Owners, Jockeys and Trainers prior to the event.

Step 2: Approximately one week before your Race Night is due to commence, you are required to send us a copy of all your race sheets and advertising forms. From this, our experienced staff will organise the content and begin the design and printing process of your full colour race card.

Step 3: On the night of your event you will distribute your race cards amongst all attendees. From this point, you can sit back and relax while one of our professional MC’s will host the event for you. This involves the showing of all races, acting as the TOTE Bookie, calculating odds and conducting your auction race.

The amount of money that can be raised obviously depends on the size of your club and the work you put in prior to the event. Please browse through the figures below for an example of how much an average size club can raise.
*This is based on selling 10 races with each race having a sponsor and an advert opposite each race. You can sell as many Adverts, Sponsors and Races as you can. The more you sell the more money you will raise.
An average size club can raise €2,500 – 10,000 in a night depending on how successful the advertising and horse sales are.

You can achieve your target by (Guide Only):

Before the Night:
– Selling Horses, Jockeys and Trainers in the 10 Races at €10
– Getting 10 Sponsors for the 10 Races at €125
– Asking Local Business to place advertisements in the Race Card at €100 each

On the Night:
– Tote Betting
– Raffle
– The Auction Race
