Ronald McDonald House Charities owe Harness Racing New Zealand Chairman Gary Allen and Terror To Love a great debt of thanks. The good folk at the TAB will round that figure up to $5000 and present a cheque to Ronald McDonald House Charities in the coming days.
The $5000 will be divided equally between the Ronald McDonald Houses in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.
Gary’s win in the TAB/Christchurch Casino Survivor Challenge enabled him to place his winning bet on Terror To Love in the Christchurch Casino NZ Trotting Cup. That historic win netted the chosen charity $4,875.
Understandably Gary Allen was delighted that not only he could prevail in the Survivor Challenge but earn money for his chosen charity.
“I’m delighted we have provided some money to a very worthwhile charity.
“It’s a neat feeling.
“It would be great to be able to do it again someday.”
