Ladies Day at Plumpton Race Course
The Pink Ribbon Foundation was delighted to be the chosen charity to partner with Ladies Day at Plumpton Race Course on Sunday 14 May 2017 and benefitted from branding at the event as well as money raised during the day via bucket collections and a raffle. Celebrity supporters of the Foundation joined the charity in the Glitz and Glamour Marquee for a wonderful three course meal and were on hand to judge the Best Dressed Lady competition.
Plumpton is a hidden gem in the world of horseracing. The thrill of jump racing, the joy of a win, delicious food and drink, and a stunning rural backdrop provided a memorable sporting experience for everyone who attended, from novice to racing expert.
We would like to thank Harriet and the team at Plumpton for giving the Foundation the opportunity to reach race goers with the breast cancer awareness message and for chance to collect almost £1,000 via volunteers from corporate partner Hastings Direct (www.insurepink.co.uk).
