The Royal Ascot Goat Races is teaming up with the Ruparelia Foundation to undertake an Eco Brick CSR project to build sanitary toilets aimed at improving sanitation at the Good Samaritan High School in Kamwokya.
“This year, we will be supporting Good Samaritan Primary School through the Ghetto Research Lab to construct a sanitary toilet in their endeavour to keep the environment clean and create employment opportunities,” they said in a statement.
The goat races will be happening on Saturday, October 12, 2019 at Speke Resort in Munyonyo.
Ruparelia Foundation’s Rajiv Ruparelia, also the organisers of the event, said the goat races is a place where people can come and network and mix along with business, pleasure and have a fun humorous time with good food and drinks all day long.
The goat races will entail eight races over the course of the day, with each race featuring eight goats. Anyone can sponsor a race, or buy a goat to participate in a race. The proceeds generated from the races will then go to a selected charity.
Races go for anything between Shs6m and Shs10m while goats go for between Shs500, 000 and Shs1m. Already, Gold Star, Euroflex and Orient Bank have already acquired goats of their own.
Away from the goats racing, the event boasts a rich tradition as the most exuberant unofficial fashion showcase in Uganda, and the organisers expect no different this year.
