Hawkesbury Hosts McFun Day For Children's Charity (Wednesday)

Hawkesbury Race Club has left no stone unturned to ensure Wednesday’s resumption of racing is a great success both on and off the track.

The rare Wednesday meeting (being held because Royal Randwick races the following day to celebrate Australia Day) is being promoted as McFun Day and the club is encouraging families to enjoy a day out at the races before school resumes next week.

To enable families to attend the club has waived the normal admission fee and instead is seeking a gold coin donation which will go towards Ronald McDonald House Westmead and Ronald McDonald Family Room Nepean.

The McDonald’s Garton Group has thrown its full support behind this special charity day. Ian and Kathryn Garton have nine McDonald’s franchises in the Hawkesbury and Penrith regions.

The meeting – the first at Hawkesbury since mid-December – is also being supported by local businesses Eather Group, Richmond Marketplace and Richmond Club.

Excellent racing aside, there will be plenty to enjoy for both parents and their children.

“We will have a Food Truck Precinct with trucks selling a marvellous array of flavoursome street food,” Hawkesbury Chief Executive Greg Rudolph said.

“And there will be a Kid’s Corner with rides, show bags and a host of activities. Wristbands can be purchased for $5, which will enable unlimited rides.

“Raffles and auctions will also take place during the day. We want to raise as much money as we can to go towards Ronald McDonald House Westmead and Ronald McDonald Family Room Nepean.

“They do such a remarkable job looking after the families of sick children, who require hospitalisation, often for extended periods.”

The seven-race program begins at 1.20pm, and gates will open at 11am.
