Time to get tickets, frock up for iconic race day

THERE'S still time to get tickets to one of the region's hottest events - the 2013 Gladstone Caulfield Cup Ladies and Gents Day.

The iconic event has been running for over 20 years, with this year's offering on October 19 from 12pm until 7pm.

Organiser Kelly Boase said the event was traditionally a ladies day, but had welcomed men since moving to Ferguson Park last year.

There's plenty to attract both genders to the event with more than $20,000 in prizes and giveaways, entertainment by Steve Haddan, fashions on the field and food platters throughout the day.

There is a complementary drink on arrival as well as a gift bag for patrons, with the overall value of the bag superseding the ticket price of $90.

Due to the spacious venue, Ms Boase said there were still tickets available (tables are for 10 people), but they were selling quickly.

Funds raised from the race day will be donated to St John's and Star of the Sea catholic schools.
