After raising $20,000 in 2014 and 2015 we are again teaming up with Hawke’s Bay Cancer Society to support Daffodil Day.

Olympian guests will be on course for the day! They will spend some time in The Hits family area signing autographs and taking photos. They will then move into the #DaffodilRaceday function for volunteers who support the Cancer Society in the Cheval Lounge.

100% of gate donation fees, along with proceeds from a charity auction, will support this great charity that’s touched the lives of many families in the Hawke’s Bay.
