The Peermont Emperors Palace Charity Mile will once again host the world class racing charity event – all for a good cause on 05 November this year at Turffontein Racecourse. The event will see 16 worthy charities being paired with 16 media houses and celebrities, as well as 16 top thoroughbreds for a day.
The main race on the day boasts prize money of R1 million, but even more significant is the R1 million in prize money which will be divided between the charities on the day. The winning charity will receive R150 000, second place will receive R100 000 with all 14 other charities getting proportionate amounts of the total donation, depending on the allocated horse’s placement.
Last year’s race day didn’t disappoint with Thembakazi Primary After Care Centre winning R150 000 after being paired with the winning horse on the day, Bouclette Top along with celebrity, Top Billing presenter Jonathan Boynton-Lee.
There are various hospitality options available in the Aquanaut or Furious Room and Deck at Turffontein, all with a prime view of the race track.
Another very popular option is Triple B – The Bourbon, Beer and Burger Festival, which is again a hospitality option at this year’s Peermont Emperors Palace Charity Mile. This family-friendly track side area combines the best of pop-up food, bubbly, bourbon and craft beer, with all the excitement of a day at the races.
