”The Esperance Bay Turf Club is pleased to announce that thanks to our amazing sponsors and community spirit we raised $3,810 for Dolly’s Dream at our Family Race Day”, said committee member Chelsi Forder.
“Our aim was to create a fun filled, happy environment for families to attend, whether race goers or not, and to enjoy a day out in a safe environment. The racing industry itself has always been big advocates of always checking on each other when times are tough. We hope to be able to bring that focus to help the Esperance town and even the wider communities, when someone needs a shoulder to lean on. Nobody is alone in our community and we encourage everyone to in the words of Dolly, “Speak even if your voice shakes”.
We hope that our Family Day at Esperance Bay Turf Club will continue to be an annual thing for our community and for Dolly’s Dream and that It can grow bigger and better each and every year.
Children were lined up all day for pony rides, face painting, entering running races and enjoying the music on the green between races.
From the bottom of our heart we would like to thank each and every participant for their donations and to the people who helped us put the day together, from donating their time, to sponsoring races, it was a group effort from all and none of it goes unnoticed.”
Thank YOU Chelsi, to your committee and to your community. We are so grateful for your support.
