The Cure Our Kids’ inaugural Cup at the Stables event, will offer guests the opportunity to enjoy champagne, heart-stopping horse races, glamorous fashion, outstanding food and exceptional entertainment and live bands.

Charlotte Inglis says she is thrilled to be stepping out her front door and straight into such an amazing function. “We’ve bought VIP tickets and are very much looking forward to joining Cure Our Kids,” she said.

Cup at the Stables’ host charity, Cure Our Kids, is dedicated to supporting the oncology unit at The Children’s Hospital at Westmead. The charity raises funds to provide services that help ease the challenges facing kids with cancer and their families.

Actor David Wenham, a Cure Our Kids Ambassador says, “as good as or even better than being in the birdcage in Flemington for the Melbourne cup this year, would be to soak up the atmosphere in the stables at Randwick. I have had the privilege of attending previous functions for Cure Our Kids and I now place them in my not to be missed list. Cure our Kids offers extraordinary help and support for kids with cancer. The positive effect Cure Our Kids has on the kids and their families is remarkable!”

“The event has been orchestrated to grant Sydney-siders a fabulous, fun filled day at an exclusive venue, where the prestige and excitement that lie at the heart of thoroughbred racing is literally palpable,” says Cure Our Kids CEO, Carolyn Dodds. “Best of all, by attending, guests will make a vital contribution to improving quality of life for kids with cancer and their families.”

$150 treats guests to a sit down buffet lunch on the lawn and sparkling on arrival; or they can join the Inglis’s with VIP tickets for $330 seated in the “Big Barn” with a gourmet lunch sit down inclusive of all drinks. All proceeds go to Cure Our Kids.
