After the loss of her Grandma to brain cancer, Kylie Lampard, wanted to do something to honour her memory. She chose to organise a Race Day for family and close friends to celebrate the life of her Grandma but also give to charity at the same time through a raffle.
On the day 100 people attended the event at Morphettville Racecourse. It was a beautiful day which honoured Kylie’s Grandma with a namesake race, the Joan McCulloch Fashion Handicap as Race 7. The CEO of Morphettville Racecourse sponsored the race which was a great success.
The raffle was conducted thanks to great sponsors who donated prizes – thanks to SAJC, ABS brakes, Angelakis, Groove Haircutters, Croydon Foodland, Alsco, Little Chez Pizza and Festival Theatre for your assistance in raising over $1,000 for cancer research.
After the race day, the family spread Joan’s ashes on the rose bushes in front of the winning post and then let twenty white doves go as a memorial.
The ACRF thanks Kylie and her family for their generosity and support in honour of your beloved Grandma, and contributing to the fight against cancer with us.
