Victorian Waeful Club Member Kerri Spillane talks to us about her Sport of Kings Events and their upcoming Charity Luncheon to be held at Flemington Racecourse on Saturday 21st July 2018.


I have always had a keen interest in horse racing. While I was working at Hardie Grant Media, I was the Chair of the Women of the Melbourne Cricket Club (WoMCC) and for a number of years the WoMCC held a Raceday. In my last year with the WoMCC my committee colleagues decided to do an alternative function, so rather than lose the momentum of a Raceday I decided to start my own annual event.

We secured the VRC Committee Room at Flemington, which is the ultimate racing venue, with its history and traditions makes for a very special experience.

We engage various speakers each year and have award winning Milliner, Karen Hamilton in the room with her latest creations. We have wonderful sponsors and supporters who provide amazing items for auction and raffles to assist with our fundraising and we have also been able to provide every guest with a gift bag.

The cost includes all food and drinks for the whole day as well as entry into the Flemington Members and the Committee room. Parking is also provided if required.

We have supported the National Jockeys Trust for the last couple of years and this year we will be supporting the Racing Hearts program.

This years Sport of Kings luncheon will be held at Flemington on Saturday 21st July 2018. Tickets cost $190 for VRC Members and $200 for non members.
