Charity, Corporate & Fund Raising Race Night Packages

We love Race Nights and it shows:

The distinct difference between the types of Horse Race Nights led us to develop our own Betting System for Fun Money Horse Race Nights, that system is fast, highly visual, easy to understand and fun for guests to take part in, we use a variety of props for this purpose including an optional, specially formulated 6' tall Wheel of Fortune.

Big events - small events - our standard packages include an 80" screen but we can offer a choice from 42" flat screens (we keep 4 of these in our standard hire stock) on high mounted stands, 60" 80" 100" front projection and 100" or massive 180" rear projection, we have a system to fit, multi room set ups and the highest quality pa systems, send us an e-mail and tell us what you want and we will build a package to suit.

What is a Charity or Fund Raising Race Night?

Good Advice:

We cannot claim to know all that there is to know about Race Nights or to have invented all of the great Race Night options which can be incorporated into a 'Night at the Races' but we have seen them, worked with them and incorporated them into Race Nights down the years. Some have been great and some have been frankly awful, we will advise you against he bad ones and we will help you with the good ones, we have written a booklet about it and we will be happy to forward you a copy of it when you book with us.

We have been working in the Race Night business for over 20 years, when we first started there were lots of operators using 16mm Cine (there still are a few operators using it), we have always invested in our business and it shows.

Our Digicam originated Race Night DVDs coupled to the very latest, powerful, short throw video projectors harness the latest technology to give you the largest, brightest picture in the most compact space.

  • Over 20 years experience in the Race Night industry has taught us that just when you think you know it all another idea comes along.
  • The reason for this is the sheer enthusiam and energy of Race Night organisers, that is why we like working with them to raise funds whilst having fun.
  • We have the best equipment, experienced, professional staffing and a real love of the Race Night business.
  • Equipment is updated, well maintained and purpose specified.
  • Race Night footage is all modern, digitally originated with professional commentary, featuring on screen leader boards and official results boards, races are chosen for exciting finishes and superb picture quality.
  • We supply fully staffed Race Nights with professional Comperes and experienced Tote Sellers who will provide you with a written breakdown of all of the transactions at the end of the evening....YOU KEEP ALL OF THE FUNDS RAISED, we do not take a cut of your profits.
  • Race nights" are events in which participants stake money on the outcome of recorded or virtual races, where the selection is totally dependent on chance, and where no "odds" or "form" are available to assist the selection.
  • As a general principle, "race nights" may only take place at events where none of the proceeds from the event itself are used for private gain, and all participants must be told what "good cause" is to benefit from the profits from the gaming.
  • No licence, permit or other form of permission is required to operate this kind of gaming provided that the statutory conditions are complied with.

Fund Raising Race Nights throughout the Three Counties and the West Midlands

  • Fun Money Horse Race Nights, no real money changes hands, we turn up with all of the Race Night equipment, the Race Night staff, an ample supply of Fun Money and the Race Cards, each player or team (we think teams or tables are best for this type of occasion) sets out with an equal amount of Fun Money and bets on the outcome of the races with it. The compere will introduce a number of different options for the players to increase their 'pot' of Fun Money including a Race Night quiz question or two between the races with a tenuously horsey theme......great fun, noisy and designed to get the players out of their chairs to earn some extra Race Night Fun Money, at the end of the evening the players/teams/tables with the most Fun Money are the winners.
  • Corporate Fund Raising Race Nights, an increasing number of Corporate Race Night bookers are using Horse Race Nights as part of their Corporate Charity Fund Raising effort. Guests bet at the Race Night Tote with real money and (just at a normal Fund Raising Race Night) a deduction is made for charity. A simple to understand Tote betting system is used and our team of professional Race Night Tote Staff will give the booker a written account of the takings, the payout and the deductions at the end of the evening. The deductions must go to the charity and a representative should be present at the event.
  • The questions for our horsey Race Night quiz are fun and designed for every one to have a chance at, you will not need to be a horse racing fan to win.
  • For Corporate Horse Race Nights where real money changes hands we have a very open and simple to understand accounting system which the booker gets to keep and examine at the end of the event to ensure that everything is above board.
    The Sporting Entertainment Company are an independently owned local company, we use the Hereford Storage facility at Station Yard Services and Hereford Self Store in Withington to store our equipment and to operate from.
