Brisbane real estate agent and greyhound racing enthusiast, Dale Cartwright, has signed a major sponsorship deal with the Brisbane Greyhound Racing Club.
The sponsorship includes the iconic $81,000 Group One Gold Cup to be held on June 4 this year and will see Mr Cartwright’s successful real estate firm, Cartwright Property Group, feature heavily in the Club’s major events and plans up to 2010.
Cartwright Property Group is one of Brisbane’s leading sales and property management consultancy with offices in Graceville, Coorparoo and soon to be opened, Moorooka.
Mr Cartwright said his passion for greyhound racing and the potential of the Brisbane Club were the driving factors for signing the deal.
“This sponsorship is the perfect way for me to give something back to an industry I love, as well as expose my growing business in residential sales and property management” he said.
“The Brisbane Greyhound Racing Club has fantastic future plans and we believe the Cartwright Property Group will benefit greatly from this partnership.”
This is the second sponsorship deal the company has signed with the Club.
Brisbane Greyhound Racing Club general manager, Luke Gatehouse, said he was very excited about the re-signing.
“It is fantastic from a Club and an industry point of view to have someone like Dale supporting and representing greyhound racing,” said Mr Gatehouse.
“Greyhound racing is in a real transitional period, and it is great to have this championed by a well-established Brisbane businessman.”
Cartwright Property Group employs more than 20 staff and is actively growing, even in this very competitive environment.
