Kate Nipperess is a trackwork rider and picnic jockey who sustained life-changing spinal injuries in a horrific trackwork accident at Warwick Farm Racecourse last year.
The ‘Let's Back Kate’ Benefit Night is being held to raise funds to purchase an adapted vehicle to enable Kate to drive herself to rehabilitation where she is tirelessly working five days a week learning to walk again.
To help raise these funds, on the night there will be auctioning of limited edition racing and sporting memorabilia. The entertainment on the night includes a Tribute Show to Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly, and will be compered by Sky Racing Radio Personality, Shawn Cosgrove.
Tickets include a two-course plated dinner and three-hour beverage package. If you are unable to attend the Benefit Night but would like to donate, please make a donation via this link- donationletsbackkate.eventbrite.com.au
