The MVRC donated $14,500 to the Royal Children's Hospital Foundation in 2017
The Moonee Valley Racing Club (MVRC) is delighted to announce that the Club will again partner with The Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation in raising much needed funds through the sale of our 2018 Cox Plate Carnival Charity Pins.
The 2018 Cox Plate Charity Pins will be available to purchase for $5 during race meetings at The Valley from Ladbrokes Cox Plate Qualifier Raceday on September 8, all the way through to the Ladbrokes Cox Plate Carnival on October 26-27. They will also be available through volunteer pin sellers at each event during Ladbrokes Cox Plate Carnival week and at the MV Legends, the Junction Club and LeighOak gaming venues.
“We are again delighted to partner with the Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation through our Cox Plate Charity Pin partnership and we will work extremely hard with our staff, volunteers and the local community to raise as much as we possibly can for such a worthy cause,” said Michael Browell, MVRC CEO.
All proceeds from the sale of the 2018 Cox Plate Charity Pins will be going to The Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation and the MVRC will also be looking at other fundraising initiatives throughout the Ladbrokes Cox Plate Carnival to help reach our target. With the likelihood of the world’s best racehorse Winx returning for an unprecedented attempt at a fourth W.S. Cox Plate on October 27, the Cox Plate Carnival Charity Pins will likely become a keepsake for the expected sell-out crowd on course on Ladbrokes Cox Plate Day.
The Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation is a distinguished fundraising organisation with over 28 years of experience supporting the hospital’s goals above everyday operations. Through philanthropy, they are changing the future of healthcare for children and young people across Australia and the world.
“The Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation is delighted to be named charity partner for the 2018 Cox Plate Charity Pin,” says Sue Hunt, Chief Executive Officer, The Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation.
“Community support like this ensures the hospital can continue providing outstanding care to our sickest and most vulnerable children.
“As we approach the Royal Children’s Hospital’s 150th anniversary in 2020, it is timely to reflect on the transformational impact philanthropic support has had on children, not only from Victoria, but across Australia and the world.
“The Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation is committed to partnering with our community to enable the RCH to not only be a great hospital, but transform the lives of the children in its care – now and for the next 150 years.
“We are thankful for every dollar raised which will support medical excellence at the hospital, allowing the RCH to attract the best and brightest medical minds from across the globe to care for our children,” says Hunt.
