Tickets are now on sale for the annual
Skywards “Thanks a Million’’ draw at Dubai World Cup on 26th March at Nad Al
Sheba Club, where the top prize is one million Skywards Miles!In addition to the grand prize, which is equivalent to 25 return Emirates
tickets to Europe or the Far East, Skywards is offering two runners-up a
prize of 250,000 Miles each - enough for six return tickets to Europe.
Tickets, priced at just Dhs20 each, or six for Dhs100, are now on sale at
Emirates’ offices around Dubai and at selected Spinneys, Rivoli and Magrudys
outlets in Dubai.
They will also be on sale at “Breakfast with the Stars” on 24th March where
racing enthusiasts will enjoy good food in the Nad Al Sheba paddock while
watching the horses (the “stars”) exercise on the track.
All funds raised by the “Thanks a Million” draw goes to the charity, Riding
for the Disabled Association of Dubai (RDAD). RDAD teaches therapeutic
horse riding to children and young adults with disabilities such as autism
and cerebral palsy.
This will be the fifth year that Skywards is donating the proceeds of the
draw to RDAD’s campaign to build an indoor arena to enable the young riders
to continue their therapy during the hot summer months. Since 2001,
Skywards has raised Dh925,000 (US$256,000).
Everyone who buys a ticket at the “Breakfast” and on Race Day for the
“Thanks a Million” draw will receive a gilded lapel pin of the Dubai World
Cup trophy as a memento of the great day.
