Pub and Club Race Night

Race Nights in Pubs and Clubs.

I am always amazed at how many Pubs and Clubs say that the entertainment costs they have are too high, yet very few think about holding a Race Night.

With a Race Night you can deduct any fee for the entertainment from takings, still leaving a healthy amount to be paid to your chosen charity, which in turn will give you extra brownie points. By law, a business cannot profit from holding a Race Night so I would never encourage this, however you CAN cover your costs from the profits and give to your chosen charity at the same time.

There are a few occasions where I can tell the night will not be successful (very few) and I always tell people if I feel this way.

So, I am going to try and help alleviate some of those worries, using examples below of what feedback I get. This is only a few reasons and I will follow up in future blogs.
