Tickets Now On Sale For 7th Annual Deighton Cup: Vancouver’s Most Glamourous Race Day

DeightonCupHighlight_img39The Deighton Cup is cantering back onto Vancouver’s social scene on July 25th at the Hastings Racetrack for its lucky seventh annual celebration of horse racing culture, summer style, cocktails, champagne and good times. Tickets are on sale now and we spoke with event organiser Jordan Kallman from The Social Concierge to find out more.

It’s going to be much more accessible to people this year, because we’re now opening up half the concourse with lower priced tickets which have lots of extra value. The Concourse GA tickets which start at $35 can add in a boxed lunch too for $12 from Cocktails and Canapés, and $5 from every ticket sold will go to the Variety Children’s Charity to add a philanthropic edge to the day, it’s a great cause and we’re excited to raise money for them.
