Alexandra Park to host Daffodil Race Night
Daffodil Race Night this Friday at Alexandra Park will proudly support the Cancer Society of New Zealand.
Alexandra Park’s Daffodil Race Night on 28 September is part of the New Zealand Racing Board’s Daffodil Racedays 2018. Now in its fifth year, the nationwide initiative has already raised more than $50,000 for the Cancer Society.
"It’s fantastic to see the racing community coming together again this year for Daffodil Racedays. The money raised for the Cancer Society will go towards vital cancer research and provide practical help, care and comfort throughout New Zealand," says Cancer Society of New Zealand CEO Mike Kernaghan.
“Thanks to events like Alexandra Park’s Daffodil Race Night, every dollar raised is used to help New Zealand and New Zealanders beat cancer,” he says.
Dining packages for the 28 September Daffodil Race Night start from $65 per person, and Alexandra Park will donate $10 from every ticket sale to the Cancer Society.
To be hosted in the Tasman Room, the evening will include entertainment, spot prizes, an amazing buffet, plenty of harness racing action under lights, and some wonderful guest speakers.
“There will be also be mascot running around for selfies while out on the track there’ll be celebrity races with New Zealand rugby legend Stephen ‘The Beaver’ Donald at the centre of it all,” says Alexandra Park Sales & Events Coordinator, Roxanne Visser.
“We’re encouraging people to gather their friends and colleagues and reserve a table today. It’s going to be such a fun night for a great cause,” she says.
