About Property Race Day Ireland

The Property Race Day 2019

The sixth annual Property Race Day took place on Thursday, 13th June 2019 and saw the industry gather together to raise over €130,000 for the ISPCC & Debra Ireland.

Over 450 of Ireland’s property, investment and financial leaders gathered in the Pavilion, Leopardstown for an exciting and entertaining day beginning with a Moët & Chandon and Heineken drinks reception. Entertainment was courtesy of The Hit Drummers on arrival, the Satin Martinis, and an up tempo DJ & Sax combo, to finish out the evening’s entertainment.

After last year’s popular performance, Ivan Yates returned as MC, and oversaw the evenings proceedings, with the hilarious Mario Rosenstock providing the post-dinner entertainment. Amidst the excitement of the races, cocktail supremoes mixed up delicious drinks as guests bid on an array of incredible prizes at the charity auction, raising over €40,000. Among the amazing prizes on offer was a family trip to New York, for Five Nights with flights, a Chef’s Table experience for six people at the multi-award-winning Chapter One. For the golf enthusiasts, one lucky bidder bought four tickets to the Open on as well as a Four Ball for Royal Portrush- host of the 2019 Open Championship.

To date, Property Race Day Ireland has raised over €675,000 net for Irish charities, commenting on the invaluable funds raised, Chairman of Property Race Day Ireland, Andrew Gunne said

“We are delighted with the funds raised to date and intend to grow this for the benefit of all of these worthy causes involved in the years ahead. As an industry, we are very proud to support so many children’s Charities including Debra Ireland, Hope & Homes for Children, Irish Youth Foundation, Jude Miley Trust, The Hope Foundation, ISPCC & Childline, The National Maternity Hospital Foundation, To Children with Love, and The Children’s Trust. This is a great result considering that it was just an idea Six years ago and testament to the incredible efforts of our amazing Committee,  Jamie Rohan, Johnny Horgan, Paul McDonnell, Paul Grimes, Suzie Cruess-Callaghan, John Hall along with our President, Mark FitzGerald”.

To our Sponsors and Table Hosts – on behalf of the Committee and the Charities, thank you for your support. It is massively appreciated, and the vital funds raised would simply not be possible without your generosity.

MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN

We are delighted that the Property Race Day Ireland has become the number one event in the Irish property and property financing calendar while raising much needed funds for children’s charities.

The Property Race Day Ireland was launched in 2014 following on from the success of the Property Race Day at Ascot, where the UK Committee has raised over £1.2 Million for children’s charities since inception. We would like to give our sincere thanks to the organisers, Invoke PR & Events and Ivan Yates, our MC, and celebrity guests.
We would also like to acknowledge the generous support of the Cornerstone Sponsors Bank of Ireland, CBRE and Arthur Cox, along with each of the organisations who attended.

The President, Mark FitzGerald, along with myself and each of the Committee members, Paul McDonnell, Johnny Horgan, Jamie Rohan, Suzie Cruess-Callaghan, Paul G Grimes, we look forward to seeing you in 2019.

Andrew Gunne
Chairman
The Property Race Day Ireland Committee

Welcome from the President

The Property Race Day is now in its sixth year and the committee, with Andrew as Chairman, once again approached this wonderful event with a huge sense of purpose, determined to make it a financial success for such genuine causes. Of course, they also wanted to ensure that it was a great event for all those who supported it and hopefully will continue to do so in future years.

The property industry is a hugely competitive one but it is fundamentally an industry with a lot of good and decent people, who can come together on an occasion like this for a higher purpose and with a sense of fun.

Mark FitzGerald
President, The Property Race Day Ireland Committee
