Truro City Race Night - Sat 22nd September
The staff and players are going to hold a a Race Night in aid of the #savetrurocity fund. The evening will be held on Saturday 22nd September in clubhouse bar after the Truro City v AFC Totton FA Cup 2nd Qualifying tie. We are aiming for the first race to start about 7pm.
In advance of the event, we’re looking for sponsorship from people and businesses.
Sponsorship is as follows:
Sponsor a Horse
Sponsor a horse for £20. There are 56 horses available so it would be great if we could get all these sponsored. In return you will get to name the horse and will be announced as the owner on the night. Should your horse win the race you will win £50 and 2nd place will win £30. Donations dependent, there may also be a prize to accompany the monetary win!
Sponsor a Race
There are 8 races available for sponsorship. Sponsorship of a race costs £75.
For this you will receive:
- Full page advert in the race night booklet
- Online recognition on the popular TigerTalk forum
- Your company name called out over the PA on the night by the race night itself.
- Should you wish you will be able to present the winning owner with their prize
Sponsorship can be paid as follows:
- By PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org (please make a note of what you would like to call your horse – nothing too rude!!)
- In person on the Race Night itself
Please email email@example.com if you have any questions about payment or anything in relation to any part of the night.
On the night itself there will be 8 races, all of which featuring 8 horses. The first 7 races will take the form of a tote based system whereby a horse costs £3 to back. Should there be 100 bets, for example, half the £300 will go into the fund with the other half split between all those holding a winning ticket.
The final race will take the form of an auction race whereby each horse will be sold to the highest bidder. The winning owner will take a whopping 50% of the total raised by the auction.
Obviously to host something like this, we will need not only willing gamblers, but some assistance in making it a success. We’d be extremely grateful in the first instance if you could distribute the poster which can be downloaded HERE Spread the word about the evening to anyone and everyone – they don’t have to be supporters! We really want the evening to be a success so the more the merrier.
Secondly we will need some help running the bar. Any contributions towards the bar itself (soft and not so soft drinks!) would be gratefully received as we will be running it ourselves and any profit will also go towards the fund. Moreover, should anyone be willing to offer to work behind the bar that would be fantastic!
I will post an update towards the middle of the week of where we are at and any more assistance that might be needed.
Lots of the squad and staff will be sticking about for the evening, but most of them are terrible gamblers so don’t ask them for tips!!
Thanks again guys.
