1. The Main Sponsor
Ideally you will target a local business to become the main event sponsors and they would normally cover the cost of the event €725 – The Gold Star Package. This leaves everything else as PROFIT!
The “Main Sponsor” would normally get exposure on the front cover (logo), back page (full page advert) and also on the screen on the night during the professional sponsors video produced for your event.
2. Race Sponsors
You will target local business to sponsors a race on the night. The business will get exposure both in the race card – Full page advert opposite the race they are sponsoring and also their advert on the screen prior to the race being show –excellent exposure compared to other race night operators
Local business will be asked to place an advert in the race booklet either full page or half page. The more adverts you achieve the more revenue and profit you will make.
4. Selling Horses, Jockeys & Trainers
The sale of the Horses, Jockeys & Trainers prior to your event is another key revenue stream that you should utilise to ensure maximum profits. Again this is a NO RISK option.
Each Horse, Jockey or Trainer is sold for a set price (normally €10 each)9 Races €10 per Horse, Jockey & Trainer will generate €2,160 revenue and €1080 PROFIT!
1. Tote Betting
Guests on the night will have a change to choose from the race card the horse that they would like to place their bet on. They will be encouraged and advised by the MC how this is done. If the horse they have picked wins, they will get paid pack a percentage of the money taken in.
2. Auction Race
The final race of the night is a great opportunity to raise some serious funds for your event. The professional MC on the will auction off each of the final 8 horse to the highest bidders on the night. The owner of the winning horse bought in the auction will receive a percentage of the money taken in during the auction.
We would always suggest having a raffle on the night. Depending on numbers attending you will generate extra revenue will little or no outlay. This is always a positive way to end the night and send lots of your guests home happy and looking forwards to your next fundraiser.
