Canada – Annual Day at the Races 2014

On Friday June 6, 2014 over 200 people came out for the Ireland Fund of Canada’s Annual Day at the Races. We were blessed with fabulous weather and winning horses!

The event supports the Artist in Residence Program at the University of Toronto and marks the unofficial start of summer. Guests took advantage of the opportunity to sport their best hats, ties and outfits – judging the best dressed competition was a challenge!

We are very grateful to our race sponsors who help make this day possible, GFX Partners, Bridgehouse Asset Management, President’s Choice Financial, Aer Lingus and St. Michael’s College at the University of Toronto.

A special thanks to the volunteers who gave so generously of their time. The committee was chaired by Ireland Fund board member Eithne Heffernan and supported by Cathy and Con O’Connell, Erin Cassidy, Maura Walsh, Lorraine Morley, Anne Looney, Kitty Freely, Brian O’Leary, Kevin Gallagher and Linda Armstrong.

Thanks to everyone who came out to support this very worthy cause.
