Hodges get into the spring racing spirit
November 2, 2016 Hodges in the Community
The roses have bloomed and one of Melbourne’s largest and popular events Spring Racing Carnival is underway. Despite the tens of thousands of people who flock to race days during the carnival, we’ve had a great turn out at our weekend auctions and some terrific results for buyers and sellers.
While some of our staff did a wonderful job showing the public through Dan and Carleen’s apartments at The Block open for inspections on Sunday 30 October, others got into the racing spirit at the Ladbrokes Peninsula Cup day at Mornington Racecourse to celebrate our 160th birthday. Hodges hosted a marquee and we fittingly celebrated with 160 of our staff, directors and VIP guests.
The Peninsula Cup is an iconic event and we enjoyed the picturesque views of the track, live entertainment and delicious food while lapping up the atmosphere of being track-side.
It was a fantastic event and the last race of the day sponsored by Hodges, with 10 per cent of our marquee punters club winnings donated to the Robert Connor Dawes (RCD) Foundation. The RCD Foundation raises much needed funds to support research and development into paedeatric brain cancer.
