RACING FOR HOPE – RDA CUP CHARITY LUNCHEON AT THE SINGAPORE RACECOURSE ON SUNDAY, 20 JANUARY 2019
Singapore Turf Club will once again play host to the Riding for the Disabled Association of Singapore (RDA) by providing the platform to raise funds on Sunday, 20 January 2019 at the Singapore Racecourse. The annual RDA Cup Charity Luncheon is a key fundraiser on RDA’s calendar and it aims to raise $100,000 through the sale of lunch tables and donations this year.
“Giving back to the community is one of the pillars on which Singapore Turf Club is built on. For over a decade, the Club has enjoyed a meaningful and enduring partnership with RDA. In 2019, we are once again honoured to host the RDA and their guests, supporters, beneficiaries and volunteers for a charitable cause as well as a thrilling day out at the races. The Club looks forward to a continued partnership with RDA to make a real difference to the many riders that benefit from its complimentary therapeutic horse riding programme,” said Ms Joy Koh, Assistant Vice President (Marketing & Events), Singapore Turf Club.
Mr Simon Leong, Honorary Chairman of RDA Singapore; “RDA Singapore has been providing free horse riding therapy sessions to people with special needs over the last 36 years. In 2018, we have served some 400 beneficiaries. We could not have done it without the continued support of our corporate partners like Singapore Island Country Club, The British Club, Singapore Turf Club, ANZA as well as many individual donors over the years. This is the 12th year that Singapore Turf Club has supported RDA Singapore and we hope that we will be able to continue with this partnership for years to come.”
Besides the RDA Cup, other racing highlights of the day will be The British Club Sprint, the ANZA Derby, the SICC May Day Charity Cup and the Sharel Charity Cup.
