Magic Hearts Derby Thankyou

Whilst the political race was happening across the nation, around 200 guests enjoyed a different kind of racing at the Magic Hearts Derby on Saturday July 2nd. Held at Morphettville Racecourse and hosted by race caller Terry McAuliffe, the event was a fantastic night that showcased the fun in fundraising.
Many female guests embraced the theme wearing beautiful hats and fascinators with HeartKids grandmother Virginia Matthews winning the three hour spa treatment from The Lavender Room for the best creation on the night. Guests enjoyed “mock” races where they could bid to own a horse and if luck feel their way they collected 50% of the winning bids if they had bid on the winning horse. Special thanks goes to all four race winners who donated half of their winnings back to HeartKids! Many also took advantage of the $20 wine wall which sold out by main course and the Magic Hearts Derby sweep raffle, which was won by HeartKid mother Sami Glastonbury, who then generously donated the
winning prize of a fully stocked bar fridge back to HeartKids to auction off in the live auction.
HeartKids mother and board member Kristie Molloy provided an incredible insight into the struggles that our families go through which many within the room were previously unaware of.
A huge thankyou must go to our key sponsors on the night Roadside Services, No Anchovies Studios, Legoe Chambers, The Hessel Group, The Business Principal, Paior Law, Action Linemarking, Delnorth International and Traffic Group Australia. Also a special thanks to all the businesses who donated items for our fundraising in particular Port Adelaide Football Club, Jet Couriers, Australian Holiday Centre and Villa Verde in Bali.
This event would not have been a success without the incredible work of the Magic Hearts Derby Committee and the many volunteers who worked both on the night and in the lead up to the event. Particular thanks to Craig Woods, Louise and Brad Pickford, Kristie Molloy and Judy Weckert. These events are never possible without the dedication from individuals like these so we truly appreciate your support.
