Hi all,
We are pleased to announce the 2nd race day for the Shine for Thomas foundation will held on 24th May 2015 at the Sunshine Coast Turf Club.
To those who attended our last one, they know what a fantastic day it was, because really, who doesn't love a day at the races especially when for a good cause "saving the lives of our precious children".
For those who would like to attend, please tell your families and friends to see if you can put a table together.
Sponsorship packages are also available (7 only). Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
Hope it's a sell out like our last race day was. Credit card bookings can be made at www.registernow.com.au/secure/Register.aspx?E=16322
PS ---if anyone is available to help out with some of the organising it would be greatly appreciated.

Just putting a shout out to everyone about the race day. Time is drawing near where bookings will have to be paid for in the next 7 days. This will also help us clarify available seats for late bookings, so please talk to your friends who are thinking of coming to the race day to confirm bookings/payments. Looks like it will be a sell out. We have received some beautiful items which will be raffled and/or auctioned on the day, such as a Delonghi coffee machine donated from Grandview Homes and a stunning handcrafted jewellery set donated by White Wolf Creations (pictured). Big thank you to Rick Gazzard for the kind donations of 4 x $50 meal vouchers for the Palmwoods Hotel and Beerwah Hotel. Our race naming sponsors for the day are SJD Electrical, Lauder and Sons, Butler McDermott Lawyers, Xray and Imaging and Procheck Automotive. There are still 3 more naming sponsorships available.
Looking forward to a great day.

Hi guys. Just an update on the upcoming race day. General support for the lunch has been strong with approx. 160 confirmed attending. We have so far organised sponsors for 3 of the 7-8 races and have begun today a final push for sponsors using radio and newspaper contacts who we have. If that is successful, 40-50 more places will be sold hopefully in the next week or so as part of the sponsor package, leaving approx. 40 tickets available for the lunch. This is just to let you all know if you are intending to come and enjoy the day, sooner rather than later to secure tickets would be the message, as I don't know what is going to happen when the stories hit the radio and newspapers. Our venue is capped at 250 people. Please phone Andrew or Trudy or email enquiries@shineforthomas.com.au Thank you all for your support and hope to see many of you there. ...
