Charity Race Nights

How to Book A Charity Race Night

How A Race Night Works

A race night is one of the most rewarding events and a fantastic way to raise valuable funds for your cause be it your local club, charity, school or society.

There are quite a few things that you will need to make your race night a success.

Charity Fundraising Organisers

Depending on your objectives for the entertainment and race night, but most fund raising events are run to make the most money for your charity or cause.

For tips on making the most money we would recommend speaking with one of our Race Night team members. We  are able to give you valuable tips for making money before and during your race night.

Our race night staff are Professionally trained to make sure your event goes by with great success and helping to raise even more money that expected.

There are always many jobs that need to be done before and during the race night to make it a great success.

Pig Racing

Before your race night we always organise the following and incorporate:

A Race Night Promotions Manager – This is an Aces Fun team member.

You will need someone to help put up race night posters prior to the event, speak with local companies to get prizes and sponsorship for the race night. Sell the advanced race night programme if you have one created.

A Race Night Event Manager – Someone to sort out the venue for the race night, Master of ceremonies and event planner.

Horse Racing Organisers

During the charity race night you will need the following.

A Race Night Master of Ceremonies – This is usually an Aces Fun Race Night member of staff but will require confirming when booking us for your event.

Alternatively, you can hire a local MC or better known as a Master of Ceremonies but the local character of the club can usually do a good job and this will help the race night run at a great profit.

Race Night Tote Ticket Sellers – These are staff members or people who take the race night wagers as volunteers.

As our race night betting uses fun betting slips, just like the real thing, it’s very quick to operate and it means that any tote seller can take any race night wager.

Race Night Tote Ticket Payout Members – This is the person who is responsible for paying out the race night winners. Depending upon the size of your race night this can be covered by the seller.

A Big Projection Screen – Someone to be in charge of the displaying of the race night races and the sound system.

Aces Race Night Support Staff – People to help generally on the day of the race night.

Horse Race Nights

Someone who is able to sell your race night programme if you have one available along with your raffle tickets that always sell well if great prizes are to win and not forgetting the cleaners to clear up after the race night punters have all gone home!

As an organisation, you can decide on the size of each race night bet or if left to our organisation then we can run this as we have for many years. The Fun Betting can be anything you like but we would recommend either small denominations of money to increase the amounts of bets placed such as 50p or even £1.00.  You then decide how much of the race night tote the charity will retain for their funds – we would recommend anything between 40% and 60% but this is once again negotiable.

Once you have made all of these decisions, we are able to open the race night tote for the first race.

Punters may place as many bets on as many horses, greyhounds, camels, pigs or any other racing fun characters or animals as they wish in the following race.

When all bets have been placed the race night tote is closed. This is to comply with the current legislation set in the UK.

Big Screen Racing

#Charity #Race #Nights

Once the race night tote is closed the race is selected and displayed on the Big Screen.  Aces Fun supply payout tabulators that make the working out of the race night payout very simple to understand.

We have been providing Charity Race Nights in the UK for many years and are proud of our Professional services and the Team of members we have carefully chosen to work and provide great race nights in the UK.

Celebrating our Corporate Entertainment Services

The Aces Fun Casino Corporate Entertainment Anniversary

Every year is an Anniversary for us at Aces Fun Casinos and Entertainment, we’ve lost count of the Events, Parties and entertaining parties we have been part of, across the South West of the United Kingdom and on a regular weekly basis, to say we are proud of our entertainment services would simply be an understatement.

The Casino Royale and James Bond themed events seem to be very popular but not as much as the race nights over the years, for charity and for business entertainment. We have lost count to the amount of times we’ve put on shows that the punters have said it’s been “The Best Fun Casino Party” they’d ever seen.

Race Night Organisers

We were looking back at the distance and mileage we have covered travelling to so many places across Somerset, Bristol and beyond, the most visited city I think has to be Bristol closely followed by Cardiff or Taunton, I’m not sure if everyone parties on a more regular basis at these locations or Aces Fun Casinos are just more appealing.

During the Summer of 2013 we organised no less than 9 Summer Balls that included Blackjack with Poker nights, Roulette tables mixed with a spot of true entertainment with our battery operated pig racing. Seeing these little pigs racing makes everyone laugh and the atmosphere is fantastic, it amazes me that such little furry things racing across the tables or floor gets the crowds and party going every night.

There’s always a serious side as Fun Casino Organisers and that’s when we provide a Charity Fundraising night that usually involves a charity or organisation needing an entertainment package that includes everything you could want from raffle tickets to the bottle of bubbly that the punters or friends and family can win.

Fun Casino Hire

Casino Fun – Blackjack & Poker

There’s perks to every job, and for Aces Fun Entertainment and the team it has to be dressing up for a James Bond Casino Royale night, getting to wear a tuxedo and looking “Shaken but not stirred” or a Vegas night dressed with a glamorous long sparkly dress that is guaranteed to get attention.

As Christmas approaches we have already provided a few Corporate Xmas party nights and entertainment for private Christmas parties, when arranged the parties receive the utmost from all of the team members to make sure each and every person that attends leaving with a smile on their faces knowing you have had a great night for business colleagues, employees or family and friends.

We do have multiple Poker tables and Roulette tables so there’s never a worry if your party is going to be larger than most, the biggest event we attended was a few years ago for a large Wedding in Somerset, entertaining over 500 guests in the biggest marquee I have ever seen, it reminded me of the millennium dome. The couple that were getting married asked for every type of entertainment that we could provide, so, we turned up with everything, 3 croupiers, 3 Blackjack dealers, 3 hosts, 3 entertainers, 5 raffle ticket touts to buy race night tickets from, 5 Vegas girls, a James Bond and 5 stall holders for other tables and it still wasn’t enough, so we had to hire an extra casino table and 2 additional Poker Tables, all I can say is as the official organisers of the Wedding Reception Party it was one of the best we’ve ever organised and will be remembered for many years.

Newlyweds at the Roulette

We look forward to the New Year Party events in Bristol and surrounding regions as we will yet again be seeing in the New Year at one of our many entertaining parties, this year there will be lots of fireworks, at the casino tables and across the skyline no doubt. It’s always nice for the punters who love to place a stake on Black or Red that they are not using real money, they’re not winning or losing but still being entertained. There’s nothing better though than seeing a customer/client or punter who keeps on winning, at the table or on the big screen racing, the prize is always a nice surprise especially when it’s not expected.

So, Aces Fun Casinos look forward to the next decade as we continue into the Millennium with our entertainment services and hope to Celebrate our next Anniversary with a Party of our own, and by the way……You’re All Invited 😉

Exeter Court Hotel Corporate Race Night

The Race Night #Exeter Court Hotel

Fantastic night with PSP Healthcare at The Exeter Court Hotel. Horse races, camel races, pig races and plenty of good clean fun.

They work incredibly hard but these people know how to party as the event began after dinner and each team of two were given $1000 in fun money notes for the betting.

Between races there was more opportunity to increase their ‘pot’ by answering gambling related and trivia questions plus a  special team challenge here and there. One or two participants  had to be reprimanded unfortunately as they were caught either trying to bribe our tote assistants or stealing wads of fun money notes!

Our eagle-eyed technician spotted them however and they were shown the error of their ways! One of the most enjoyable corporate entertainment events we’ve had in a long time.

Finlay Foundation Charity Event

There’s lots of fantastic prizes to be won and to be auctioned off, good luck to everyone involved and attending.

Casino Party Christmas Party

Birthday party, Christmas party. To celebrate an 18th and a 60th birthday Aces Fun Casinos were delighted to go back to our partying friends in Coldharbour Rd Bristol. The weather may have been cold and wet but the games – blackjack and roulette were HOT! This inventive family, with so many guests (around 100) simply emptied their bedrooms for the casino tables – and it worked very well indeed.

Weddings A Day at the Races

Wedding entertainment A day at the Races A great way to entertain guests, either after the wedding breakfast, before the evening event or FOR the evening event!

Horse racing, pig racing, camel and dog racing, bet using real or fun money. Something a little different for family and friends to talk about for a long time to come. Our musician couple at the weekend (see their cake?) really enjoyed the races and even got chance to place a few bets themselves.

As often happens, a younger guest, Lewis, stole the show, winning thousands of fun money dollars and a nice tin of Quality Street. Second prize awarded to the two lovely ladies in the last photo.
