Our Rotary cluster has decided to run a fund raising Harness Racing Night on Saturday 12th May at Cranbourne Race Course.
Fund Raising for Tracohma Prevention
The Aim is to raise funds for Tracohma, which is a project of Ian Riesley.
Although it doesn’t exist in mainstream Australia, trachoma persists in remote Aboriginal communities that still lack safe washing facilities and have notoriously poor and chronically overcrowded housing.
In some areas, 4% of Indigenous children aged from five to nine years old have an active trachoma infection. In the Northern Territory, that rate is 5%, which is considered an endemic level.
The cost will be $85.00 per head for a three course dinner in the Members Enclosure on the first floor of the Grandstand.
Dress will be formal.
