Have fun and win prizes with virtual racing fashion

Gail Murphy of Gail's Rails

Calling all fashionistas!  Do you wish you were going racing at Punchestown this week?  Are you missing stylish days out and the fun of getting dressed up?  So are we!

That’s why a few style loving friends have come together to create the Punchestown Virtual Fillies Day, today  Friday May 1 !  Virtual racegoers can swap the racetrack for their kitchen, garden, sitting room, bedroom or garden shed!  We know it’s not quite the same, but we are all in this together! So, stay safe, stay home and have some fun with fashion!

Dress up in your favourite race day outfit and put your best foot forward in our Punchestown Virtual Fillies Day. It costs just €4 to enter with all proceeds going directly to The Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation.

There are three categories to enter: Best Fab Filly, Best Fine Fella, Best Cool Couple

So show us your hat, your outfit and your shoes. You could win…BIG!

Kim Kelleher of Jingles boutique is among the judges

There is a prize fund worth almost €5,500 up for grabs!  Thank you so much to all of our generous sponsors who have given us so many great prizes!! It’s a great cause and a bit of craic so why not dress at home!

How to enter: Donate €4 to The Jack and Jill Children Foundation by Texting WECARE to 50300.

Screen shot your donation and post a pic of your outfit by PM to Gail’s Rails @gailsrails or Stuarts Select Style for judging @stuarts_select_style.  Or you can upload your photo on your own social media by using #punchestownfillies day and don’t forget to tag @punchestownraces

No old image will be considered, so remember it has to be taken during this time, at home!!   It’s all a bit of fun and will help raise much needed funds to support the incredible work The Jack and Jill Children’s Foundation do.  Go for it and show us your style!
