Join us at Addington Raceway on Friday 16 May for a premier night’s racing that includes the running of the Group 1 $125,000 Canterbury Breeders New Zealand Oaks for 3yo fillies.

It’s also Ladies Night in Twiggers where there’ll be plenty going on. Addington, in association with Aviva, Westfield Riccarton and Pascoes The Jewellers are planning a terrific evening for Canterbury women looking to liven up an autumn evening.

Entertainment will be provided by effervescent Chef, Media Personality and Aviva Ambassador, Jax Hamilton. Westfield Riccarton, along with local fashion stylist Stephanie Rumble, will showcase fashion elements from a selection of their retailers. Add in the chance to win an 18 white gold diamond set abstract ring worth $3,599 courtesy of Pascoes The Jewellers and there’s plenty on offer for the ladies.

Addington is pleased to partner with the charitable organisation Aviva, a Canterbury based specialist family violence agency that was established in 1973 as Christchurch Women’s Refuge. As it's Aviva's annual appeal weekend on 16 and 17 May, a portion of the ticket price will go to them and they will also have an array of silent auction items on display for you to bid on and take home.

Julie McCloy, Marketing and Funding Manager for Aviva commented “We’re so pleased to be involved with Addington Raceway for what will no doubt be a great event. It gives us a great opportunity to raise awareness and some of the almost $1million we must generate each year to support Canterbury children, women and men towards violence-free futures.”
