Cancer Council Queensland has been announced as the beneficiary for the first ever Clifford Park Winter Wonderland Ball. The event scheduled for Saturday 21 July will be held inside Toowoomba’s newest function space, the Clive Berghofer Grande Atrium.

In South Queensland, more than 2000 people are diagnosed with cancer each year, and every dollar raised through events like the Clifford Park Winter Wonderland Ball gives them much-needed hope. Cancer Council Queensland is an independent, community-based charity, the achievements of which are made possible by the generosity of Queenslander’s. Cancer Council Queensland is one of the state’s leading not-for-profit organisations working in cancer control.

Toowoomba Turf Club Chief Executive Officer Blair Odgers said he is excited to form a new partnership. “Clifford Park is delighted to support Cancer Council Queensland and aid Cancer research,” said Blair. Working in conjunction with local charities is part of Clifford Park’s Community strategy. “Being able to host an event in Winter will really enable Clifford Park to showcase our newest asset – the Clive Berghofer Grande Atrium, with climate control heating. It will also provide supporters, with the opportunity to enjoy a night at the races whilst raising needed funds,” said Blair.

The event tickets include a four hour canape package with chocolate fountain, a glass of Moet or Stella Artois on arrival, live entertainment, funny money bookmaker promotion, whiskey tasting, party games and of course, local horse racing. There will also be the opportunity to further help raise funds for Cancer Council on the night.
