Races to be runawy success for charity

Ladies Oaks Day names official 2024 beneficiary.

It attracts fashion, colour and racing fanfare. But behind one of the region’s biggest race days is an extra-special cause to back.

The Hot 91.1 Ladies Oaks Day will return to Sunshine Coast Turf Club (SCTC) on May 31 and this year endED has been chosen as the official charity partner.

Based on the Sunshine Coast, endED works to combat eating disorders, with Mark and Gay Forbes at the helm.

“Being selected as this year’s beneficiary marks a significant milestone for us,” Mr Forbes says.

“We will be able to broaden our impact and provide essential aid to the community we serve.

“There is approximately 57,000 people on the Sunshine Coast directly impacted by an eating disorder. Support is crucial.”

SCTC CEO John Miller says announcing endED as the beneficiary this year “is a privilege”.

“With 10 per cent of total gate takings pledged to their cause, we affirm our commitment to making a meaningful difference in our community,” he says.

Rod Winner, the 91.1 Hot FM general manager, says the event continues to deliver funds to charities and once again hopes to make a significant contribution in 2024.

“Now in its 19th year, the partnership between 91.1 Hot FM and the SCTC for Ladies Oaks Day has always had a charitable element, contributing nearly $200,000 in donations across the period,” he says.

“We have partnered with numerous worthy and inspirational community organisations across this time, and in 2024, we are proud to be partnering with endED. Mark, Gay and their team at endED have done a wonderful job in the eating disorder space since 2015, and the team at 91.1 Hot FM are proud to be able to support endED.”

Gates for the 91.1 Hot FM Ladies Oaks Day open at noon.
