Glitz and Glamour as Charity Mile returns in Turffontein

THE stage has been set at the Turffontein Racecourse as the Peermont Emperors Palace Charity Mile (PEPCM) returns in full swing together with Racing.

It’s a Rush will once again drive a charitable cause through the sport of horseracing during the race which is regarded as one of the most poignant occasions on the racing calendar.

The date set for this enthralling annual premier race is Saturday November 1 at this popular venue perfectly suitable for this PEPCM race-day which has grown to be a star-studded affair. The 10th edition of the PEPCM will see 16 of South Africa’s top celebrities heading south of Joburg to glam things up, all in the name of charity.

The PEPCM will see 16 thorough breds  being picked at the Barrier Draw event to be held

at the Emperors Palace on October 22 to represent 16 charities.

On the event day (Saturday,  November 1) the qualifying horses will race in the interest of charity and their finishing place to determine how much each charity takes home out of the allocated R550 000.

Adding charm to the occasion will be the element of each runner being publicly represented by a celebrity and a media partner.

To be part of the action, head down to Turffontein Racecourse where you can catch a glimpse of your favourite local stars. Gates open at 11am and entry is FREE.

A children’s play area and a live band will be on offer throughout the day.

Don’t miss out! Book your table now; call Agnes on 011 681 1702.
