Toyota Material Handling Australia (TMHA) celebrated a day of horse racing, food and fashion with customers, suppliers, and corporate partners at the TAB Everest Day.
The event was held at Royal Randwick Racecourse on October 14 and hosted by TV personality Kerri-Anne Kennerley.
It featured more than 360 TMHA guests who celebrated the day in style inside the bespoke Toyota Forklifts Legends Enclosure, a 450 sqm glass-walled structure comprising indoor and outdoor spaces.
President and CEO of TMHA Steve Takacs says that he was thrilled to be able to enjoy such a special day among TMHA staff, customers, suppliers, and corporate partners.
“TMHA is Australia’s leading forklift company, and we are privileged to be able to host events such as the TAB Everest Day in the Toyota Forklifts Legends Enclosure,” he adds.
“As well as spending an enjoyable day track side, I am thrilled that TMHA has partnered with and have been able to raise $100,000 as a direct donation to Melanoma Institute Australia.
“Australia has the highest melanoma rates in the world, with one person diagnosed with the disease every 30 minutes. One Australian dies from melanoma every six hours, which is more than our annual road toll.”
Notable attendees included current and former stars including NRL legends Ricky Stuart, Bradley Clyde and David Furner, along with current Canberra Raiders NRL players Jarrod Croker, Jordan Rapana, and Nick Cotric.
A highlight of the day was a Q&A session with renowned horse trainer Bjorn Baker who also had a horse running at the TAB Everest in race seven (Overpass).
ARIA Hall of Fame Inductee Daryl Braithwaite entertained guests with a 30-minute live set accompanied by a four-piece band, including a special performance of his number one Australian hit Horses.
Additionally, TMHA was on hand to crown the winner of race number four, which was the Toyota Forklifts Gloaming Stakes, won by NZ horse Raf Attack.
