Day at races with football friends

By on Dec 1, 2014 in News | 0 comments

Friends of Football members and supporters are invited to a day at the races with fellow football fans in aid of a charity that fights the leading cause of severe vision loss.

Macular Degeneration New Zealand is supported by Friends of Football member Allan Jones, who has been an ambassador for the charity, and is also the chosen charity for ASB Premiership side WaiBOP United.

Macular Degeneration causes progressive loss of central vision but the peripheral vision is not affected. It is the leading cause of severe vision loss. One in seven people over the age of 50 years is affected in some way and the incidence increases with age.

Football supporters are invited to join a group going to a fundraising day for MDNZ at Auckland’s Ellerslie Races on Saturday February 14.

You can either book an individual seat at the raceday function in the Guineas Room for $140 or participate in a Friends of Football table at a cost of $125. Your ticket gets you racecourse entry with book, parking, drinks on arrival, buffet lunch, afternoon tea and an open bar. You’ll enjoy entertainment from tipsters, jockeys and celebrities – and have the company of fellow football lovers.

For more details or to book your ticket to the races, contact Friends of Football ( secretary Armin Lindenberg (
