Community TAB of Racing and Wagering WA (RWWA) has been partnering with WA race clubs for many years to encourage fundraising for local not-for-profit organisations, and in 2019 there is further motivation for race clubs to be involved.
Every WA race club that is involved in the Community TAB Race Club Community Program in 2019 will go into the running to receive a $4000 grant from Community TAB for their race club.
Community TAB General Manager Matthew Thomas said it is a great way to give back to clubs who have been part of the program and supporting their local communities.
“The program has been very successful since its inception in 2014 and has raised over $500,000 for not-for-profit groups in WA,” Mr Thomas said.
“At the end of 2019 we will randomly draw out one club to receive the $4000 grant to recognise them for their support and involvement, and to support their race club.
“In 2018 34 race clubs took part in the program and this benefitted 42 not-for-profit groups.”
RWWA CEO Richard Burt said the program of matching funds raised by clubs is an initiative that RWWA is very proud of.
“The positive effects of this program have been extensive, especially for regional WA with 49 of our race clubs based in regional communities, the fundraising has allowed the race clubs to reinforce strong relationships within their communities,” Mr Burt said.
“RWWA recognises race clubs across WA play an important role in their community contributing both economically and socially, and via Community TAB, we thoroughly enjoy working with the race clubs on this rewarding program.”
Clubs must officially take part in the program through Community TAB to go into the draw.
