AustSafe Super galloping towards charity race meet

AustSafe Super is set to host the VIP marquee at its 'Unifying Agriculture' Charity Race Day for the seventh year running, supporting community-based charities focused on rural and regional areas, LifeFlight and Royal Flying Doctors Service. 

The industry super fund and Bundaberg Fruit and Vegetable Growers are joint partners for the annual event scheduled to take place on Saturday 5th May at the Bundaberg Race Club.

According to AustSafe Super’s Regional Manager - Central QLD, Tony O’Mara, the Fund is proud to be associated with the charity day given its history and ongoing connection with the agricultural sector.

“As the fund of choice for regional and rural Australia, we’re committed to supporting all things agriculture and this charity day is the perfect opportunity to celebrate the valuable contribution the sector makes to Australia’s productivity. 

“It’s also a relaxing and enjoyable day out – everyone loves a race day. Crowds to the event are growing year-on-year, so we’re confident this year will be the biggest and best yet,” he said.

The 2018 AustSafe Super ‘Unifying Agriculture’ Charity Race Day will feature six races throughout the day, and forms part of the Battle of the Bush Series, a Racing Queensland initiative allowing 16 horses from eight regions to qualify for a $100,000 final in Brisbane (Doomben) on June 23rd.

The day will feature a charity auction in the AustSafe Super-sponsored VIP marquee, as well as major raffle prizes with the proceeds being donated to LifeFlight and Royal Flying Doctors Service. Last year’s event raised almost $10,000 which was split across the two charities.

VIP Marquee tickets available here and entry tickets can be organised via Bundaberg Fruit and Vegetable Growers’ office at 23 Enterprise Street, Bundaberg, or by calling 07 4153 3007 or emailing bfvg.info@bfvg.com.au.  

Now in its 30th year of operation, AustSafe Super is the industry super fund for rural and regional Australia and looks after more than 100,000 members with $2.4 billion funds under management.
