About The Property Race Day
The Property Race Day is now celebrating its twelfth year, having raised over £2 million for children's charities. Beneficiaries to date include; SOS Children's Villages, Hope & Homes, LandAid, Starlight, Daktari Bush School, Plan UK, Project Hope UK, The Children's Trust, WellChild and Sebastian's Action Trust. The day has quickly established itself as a key date in the property calendar. This year's event will take place on Friday 13th July, 2018, where our principal aim is to continue raising funds for extremely well deserving charities.
The event will take place at the world-famous Ascot Racecourse in the main Pavilion. This offers the perfect opportunity for networking within the sector, whilst, the free CS2 Property Race Day Train will take guests directly from London Waterloo to Ascot.
The day will include a champagne reception, seven races, a live and silent auction and a post racing live band.
The Property Race Day, which is now in its twelfth year, has firmly established itself as the property industry's day at the races. PRD has raised in excess of £2 million to date for our chosen charities including LandAid.
In 2017 we seated over 850 guests for lunch and will do the same this year - demand for tables has been incredibly high.
There are still some sponsorship opportunities available where your business can benefit from the exposure The Property Race Day and Ascot Racecourse provide. Business support remains invaluable to the fundraising efforts of the day.
