HIGHWAY Aged in partnership with Gold Circle is inviting companies and corporates to its Race Day on Saturday 16 April at the Greyville Racecourse.
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.

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

He added this initiative is for fund-raising purposes since the organisation need to raise funds to remain operational.
“We need to have initiatives therefore it is imperative that we initiate 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 which are aimed 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 promote social and recreational activities among the elderly. These affiliated clubs which comprise about 1200 members benefit from all ventures undertaken by the organisation.”
“There will also be in-house tote facilities where you can take bets and there will be runners that will take bets on your behalf while you remain seated at your table,” added Moodley.
