Race Day November 2014
Posted on: Saturday, 15 November 2014 at 11:05:24 PM
Approximately 200 people gathered in the Friends of SFX Cathedral marquee at the Geraldton Turf Club on November 15th to enjoy a day at the races and help raise funds for the Cathedral restoration. Over $7,500 was contributed to the funds through race sponsorship, ticket sales and raffles. Rachel Gardiner organised the event and was thrilled that all the race sponsors were families and businesses with long associations with horse racing and the Cathedral. The main race of the day sponsored by Geraldton Fruit and Vegetable Supply was won by Sandgroper, part- owned by Ross and Karen (Stella Maris Past Pupil) Drage of Horrocks.
The horses weren’t the only attractions on the day. Alisha Wyatt and Jadine Priolo combined to present a very professional and enjoyable array of entertainment. A talented group of young people presented a fashion parade featuring designs by former Nagle student Lauren Atkinson of Asuar Designs as well as fashions from Geraldton’s iconic Corner Surf Store . The All Things Dance students once again supported our project with several items which, as usual, displayed their high degree of talent and skill.
The Fashions on the Field entrants were joined by Emeritus Archbishop Barry Hickey, the patron of the SFX Cathedral Precinct Project, and Bishop Justin Bianchini as they paraded for the crowd and presented the prizes. The judges were given a difficult task with so many of the guests in the marquee having gone to great lengths to frock up for the occasion.
