About the Glen Stower Memorial Race Day

In May 2015 our dad Glen lost his battle with lung cancer at just 56 years of age. He was a much loved dad, poppy, partner, brother, mate and colleague and we miss him more than we can say.
Please join us at the Ipswich Turf Club to honour his memory and raise valuable funds for the Cancer Council Queensland.

The Cancer Council Queensland is focused on providing all Queenslanders with the best possible prospects of preventing, detecting, effectively treating and surviving a cancer diagnosis. Money we raise will contribute to their work in cancer research, support services for patients and their families and cancer prevention and early detection programs. We hope that one day a cancer diagnosis won’t have to be a death sentence, as it was for our dad.

Race Day Raffles:
Raffles will be held throughout the day, with all proceeds going directly to the Cancer Council. A number of local businesses have already donated some fantastic prizes – watch this space for further details. Tickets are priced at $5 each or $20 for 5.

Race Sponsorship:
Local businesses can purchase race sponsorship packages for $450. Packages include 2 tickets to the event and naming rights to a race. The race name will be published in the form guide as well as online betting, TAB and anywhere the race is televised. The Turf Club have kindly offered the opportunity for our race sponsors to display promotional material on the infield of the track on the day of the event, so this presents a great advertising opportunity. 100% of proceeds from race sponsorship will be pledged to the Cancer Council Queensland as a tax deductable donation.

To make a race day booking you can contact Becky Gifford to advise number of tickets required, seating arrangements and any special dietary requirements. Becky is also able to handle any enquiries regarding race sponsorship or raffle ticket purchases.
