The Traralgon Greyhound Racing Club is getting behind a fantastic cause – breast cancer research – this Friday night and is asking local businesses to do the same.
The club is supporting the National Breast Council Foundation's pink theme by donating $100 to the charity every time the greyhound wearing the pink rug (box 8) wins on what will be August 8th (08/08/08).
Any company that follows suit by sponsoring the number 8 greyhounds will gain free entry into the meeting.
Spectators will be treated to $3 Crown Lagers and $2 Yellow glen pink champagnes, while pink chocolate royals will be on the house.
The highlight of the 10 race programme is Race 8 – the Castle Of Mey Final (513 metres), which the club has approval from Buckingham Palace to host.
