Afternoon Race Event – Race Night

One of my Race Nights this weekend has been an afternoon Race Event for a local kids football club. The reason behind holding it in an afternoon was because the club hold an annual Race Night for fundraising, but the kids had heard so much about what a fantastic fun night it is, they wanted one they could attend too. The venue and parents were not too keen on having kids attend an evening Race Night

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.

Reasons Why People Will NOT Book a Race Night

I get many enquiries where the person enquiring decides NOT to go ahead with holding and booking a Race Night, usually due to being unsure of the risks involved. I openly admit there are risks BUT with the right planning you can normally avoid this. 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.

Quite often people think they need a huge amount of people attending a Race Night for it to be successful. This is NOT the case.
