Top Oil Charity Mascot Race returns for a second year at Leopardstown Christmas Festival
Charity fun run aims to raise significant funds for worthy charities
24th November 2017 – Top Oil Ireland’s leading family owned home heating and fuel business, is calling on companies across Ireland to get involved in the second Top Oil Charity Mascot Race to raise much-needed funds for charities on 29th December at the Leopardstown Christmas Festival. Each company involved in the mascot race will represent their chosen charity and the winner of the race will award the total prize charity fund.
The charity fun race will see Top Oil mascot Mr. Ted racing against other company mascots on the famous Leopardstown track to help raise awareness and donations for worthy Irish charities. Each company that enters the race must donate €800 to the charity prize fund and nominate their charity to compete with a company mascot or designated character will be provided for them in the race.
Any registered charity can also approach a company to ask them to represent their charity in the race for a chance to win the overall prize money. The winning company mascot will receive the total amount in the prize fund which it can then donate to its chosen charity, as well receiving the title of Top Oil Mascot Race Winner 2017. Collection buckets will be on display in the enclosure during the day to raise additional funds for the participating charities.
Gerard Boylan, Chief Executive of Top Oil, said; “We understand that Christmas is a challenging time for many charities and with the return of Top Oil Charity Mascot Race at the Leopardstown Christmas Festival, we are proud to enable companies and charities an opportunity to profile and fundraise. The charity fun race was huge success last year so we hope this year will be just as successful. We are encouraging companies to get involved and sign up for Top Oil Mascot Race to try a win significant prize for their chosen charity.” The 100 metre race will take place after racing on Festival Finale Day of Leopardstown’s Christmas Festival, where over 10,000 patrons are expected to attend.
