Roger Oldridge from Ladbrokes presents Craig Williams, on behalf of the National Jockey's Trust, a cheque for $2,149 from The Valley's Racebook Punters Club Competition.
The Moonee Valley Racing Club has hit the ground running in 2018 and has already donated more than $15,000 to the local community. Below is a snapshot of who the MVRC have been supporting -
Barbecure – Cure Cancer Australia
To celebrate Australia Day on Australia Stakes Night, The Valley’s popular public holiday race meeting hosted a range of Aussie activities, which are never complete without a Big Aussie BBQ. We were proud to partner with Barbecure and Cure Cancer Australia to donate all proceeds of the sausage sizzle, totalling $1,000, to this worthwhile cause.

E.J. Whitten Foundation Race Night
The eighth annual E.J. Whitten Foundation Race Night was held on March 2 at The Valley, with plenty of much-needed funds raised on the night for the foundation. With retired Racing Steward Des Gleeson a special guest in the Committee Room and plenty of auction items on offer, it was a fantastic night all round that the MVRC is proud to continue to support to help raise awareness for prostate cancer.
