We are proud to announce that we are a Platinum Sponsor for Gold Cup Charity’s 2024 Luncheon.

While Shellie has stood down as a Director and committee member after 15 years she continues to support such an awesome event.  This charity has done amazing things for our local special needs children. A little bit about this Charity…

In 1999 the Albury Gold Cup Wewak Street School Charity Luncheon Committee was formed, with a commitment to raising money on an annual basis to contribute to the needs of the Wewak Street School. In late 2013 the Committee decided to formalise and expand fundraising efforts of the Committee thus far and Gold Cup Charity Ltd was registered. The objectives of this charity are to generate funds for projects to benefit children with disabilities and special needs in our local area. The team of ladies that create this event in and every year are passionate about the charity’s objectives and host an annual fundraising luncheon, which has grown into a prominent event in Albury-Wodonga social calendar. Proceeds raised to date have been used to buy equipment such as modified bikes, a wheelchair swing, a sensory garden with water feature, a swim spa and interactive whiteboard.  Over the years money has been pooled with other sponsors to purchase a bus, erect a shade cover for a basketball court, build a bus shed, renovate and extend an indoor spa area. The luncheon is held every year at the Albury Race Club. The date each year is the Thursday before Gold Cup Day in March.
