The charitable trots and Ballarat communities have again come out in force with dining all but selling out and auction items aplenty for tomorrow night’s Connor Clarke harness racing Fundraiser.

In aid of Connor, a pony trots driver battling non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and his family, the Ballarat and District Trotting Club has been thrilled with the response to its function, according to club business development and marketing manager Belinda Eden.

“The night will hopefully raise funding to help with the costs of his travel, medical and other on-going costs,” Ms Eden said. “We’ve been inundated with support, it’s been fantastic.”

In addition to about “99 per cent” of dining packages being sold, with $10 of the $35 adult ticket benefitting the Clarke family, the club will host an auction of more than 35 items.

“Everyone has been amazed about the amount of people who have thrown their support behind the night, both people locally and from as far away as Queensland. The trots community has really rallied together.”

The night runs from 6-10pm, with all racegoers welcome to attend and to bid on the auction items, including items that are being live on the club’s Facebook page.

It will also feature four pony trots races and a donation from Harness Racing Victoria and the pony trots community to the Clarke family.
