HIGHWAY Aged in partnership with Gold Circle is inviting companies and corporates to take part in their race day on Saturday 16 April at the Greyville Race Course.
Highway Aged spokesperson Kevin Moodley said: “This is an event whereby Gold Circle allocates an entire day of racing to the organisation.
“The race will be called the Highway Aged Race Day. This allows us to sell races to companies and corporates and the respective race buyer will be able to name the race as per their company's name .
“Thereby the race buyer will receive wide scale marketing through all printed racing material nationally and international marketing through Telly Track.

“We will also be selling tables of 10 individual seated which costs R 3500 per table. All the table buyers will be served starters, main coarse and dessert. The tables will be set at the Classic Room Restaurant the Greyville Race Course, however a company that buys the race will be given 10 free tickets for the tables.”

He added this initiative is for fund-raising purposes since the organisation needs to raise funds to remain operational. “We need to have initiatives therefore it is imperative that we host fund-raising ventures on an ongoing basis. The race day is part of our fund-raising drive.”

Highway Aged is a registered NGO that provides social work service to the elderly in the Pinetown and surrounding areas.
“We also engage in various community-based projects such as sewing, food gardening adult-based education training and bead work. These projects aim to create employment, develop skills, build capacity and empower individuals to improve on general standards of living.

“We also have a structure comprising 16 senior citizen clubs which are day-care recreational facilities that promotes social and recreational activities amongst the elderly. These affiliate clubs which comprises 1200 members benefit from all ventures undertaken by the organisation.”

He said the details of the race day will include: “Business and corporates are to purchase the races at the designated prices. In return the companies that purchase a race will be allowed to bring 10 individuals to have lunch.
“There will also be an in-house tote facility where one can take bets and there will be runners who will take bets on one’s behalf while that particular person is remain seated at their table.”
