Almost £4500 raised at Owlerton Ladies Evening
Owlerton Greyhound Stadium’s Ladies Evening – held in support of Weston Park Cancer Charity – saw women from across the region come together to raise £4452.
The glitzy event, which took place last summer, included 16 exhilarating races, a raffle – with prizes from some of the city’s favourite brands, an auction and ‘best dressed’ competition.
The event was organised by Owlerton Greyhound Stadium and the Weston Park Cancer Charity team.
Over 500 people attended, with companies such as Napoleons Casinos, ANT Marketing, City Taxis, New Habits and Hallam FM sponsoring races on the night.
