For the past seven years, the AHA Newcastle Hunter Charity Race Day has been a staple on the local hospitality industry’s social calendar, raising more than $600,000 for Variety- the Children’s Charity and other charities.


This year, a new partnership with financial services firm Pitcher Partners will see the event into its eighth year, once again raising money for Variety and its annual NSW Variety Bash event and other worthy causes.


“Supporting charity organisations has always been important for us, and the Variety Bash in particular is a great fit for our industry,” AHA Newcastle Hunter President Mick Starkey said.


“Over the years many of our hoteliers and industry associates have taken part in the event, which sees participants travel to schools in regional NSW providing vital funding and support. As an industry, we’re all about supporting local communities so it makes sense for us to get involved.


“Welcoming Pitcher Partners on board as the major sponsor of the race day means we can continue raising money for this great cause and we couldn’t be happier to have them involved.”

Likewise, the team at Pitcher Partners is also thrilled to be involved in the charity race day and its very important cause.


While we pride ourselves on providing the best advice and service to our clients, Pitcher Partners also has a strong focus on social responsibility and giving back,” Pitcher Partners spokesperson Jason Butler said.


“Being able to support the AHA Newcastle Hunter Charity Race Day, which then, in turn, supports kids in rural NSW who are living with a disability or financial hardship is something we are extremely proud to do.”


“While we pride ourselves on providing the best advice and service to our clients, Pitcher Partners also has a strong focus on social responsibility and giving back,” - Pitcher Partners spokesperson Jason Butler.

This year, the AHA Newcastle Hunter Charity Race Day – sponsored by Pitcher Partners, will be held on Saturday, 30 April at Newcastle Racecourse.
