EVENT DAY UPDATE
Greyhound Racing Victoria is delighted to take part in Neil’s Wheel – an event hosted by Melbourne’s 3AW host Neil Mitchell to raise money for sick children.
The first Neil’s Wheel event was held during Neil’s Morning Program last year and successfully raised $250,000 for the Royal Children’s Hospital. Following on from that stunning success, Neil will once again hold a group of celebrities and organisations hostage in the Melbourne Star until enough money is raised.
“Peita and I are so proud to be representing the greyhound racing community and all our lovely four-legged friends for this campaign while we raise money for the best children’s hospital in the world. Please dig deeply as there is nothing more precious than a child; and nothing sadder than a little one who is unwell. P.S. and both of us would much prefer to be on the ground rather than up in the air!” – Louise Martin
On March 8 from 8.30am to 9.30am, GRV’s General Manager Strategic Communication and Marketing with the support team of Deputy Chair Peita Duncan and her beautiful greyhound Princess, will occupy one of the pods on the wheel and will only be allowed down once they have sourced $10,000 worth of donations.
Money raised will go towards two anaesthetic machines and two patient monitors worth a total of $236,000. This state-of-the-art technology would be a valued acquisition for the Royal Children’s Hospital.
The greyhound racing community is a generous one. And right across the state and we are proud to help make a difference. But we can only do it with generosity and goodwill of the people that are associated with our sport.
Your donation, and if applicable, your business will be recognised by Neil on his top-rating program on the day or if you like you can remain anonymous.
