This year saw the team from Mipela celebrate its 9th annual race day with clients and friends at Doomben on 24 March. As always, the bubbles flowed, the food was fabulous and everyone had lots of fun – with a little frivolity thrown in for good measure.
As is tradition, the pressure was on for the last race of the day where everyone generously contributed to a group bet of $1,500. After much cheering from our corporate box, hooves were flying and anticipation was high as Trommelschlagen came in first, Jinx ‘n’ Drinx came in second. We only won $550 on the last race but Mipela tipped in $950 to cover the balance of what everyone had generously donated for the last bet, the most ever donated from this event to the Royal Flying Doctor Service!
