‘Cork Sports Clubs Go Racing’ is a new fundraising initiative created by Cork Racecourse Mallow to allow local sports clubs to fundraise for their respective clubs at their race-meeting on Friday evening, May 5th. Cork Racecourse Mallow will refund 50% of every admission ticket the clubs sell.

In addition to an exciting National Hunt card, racegoers can enjoy additional free entertainment with a line-up of five live bands, including renowned Dublin-born Irish folk duo Hudson Taylor who will perform after the last race.

Mary Kelly, Cork Racecourse Mallow Sales and Marketing Manager, commented: “We are delighted to be able to offer this fundraising incentive to sports clubs who form the backbone of our local communities. A day at Cork Racecourse Mallow is a great platform for clubs to raise much needed funds and can offer the fun and excitement of a day at the races, hosted in modern facilities. We have seven exciting National Hunt races on the card and Hudson Taylor should really add to the atmosphere when they take to the stage after the last race.”

Clubs interested in participating in this fundraising incentive should contact Mary Kelly directly on 022-50207 or email: mkelly@corkracecourse.ie

The first of seven races goes to post at 5.05pm. Tickets are available to buy online at www.corkracecourse.ie including details on all race day packages.
