The Great Chase
Carinya Society has been lucky enough to be involved in the Great Chase since 2007.  The program is run by Greyhound Racing Victoria and is open to charities and not for profit organisations (NFP).  Each group is assigned one or more greyhounds and if your greyhound wins then the charity or NFP wins too.  Whichever organisations greyhound is the overall winner of the Great Chase receives a percentage of those greyhounds’ winnings for the next year.  As well as being a great opportunity to raise some much needed money each of the racing days themselves are fantastic fun.  In 2011and 2012 we were fortunate enough to havig a wning dog raising $500 both years for Carinya. All of the clients supported all greyhounds running in the final at The Meadows track. We look forward all future Great Chase events.



Spring Garden Clean up. September 2014.

Thanks to a wonderful group of volunteers from NAB we were able to clean up our gardens and plant new flowers and shrubs.  It all looks fantastic and the extra mulch will keep the new plants healthy over the summer period. The NAB team along with Carinya staff worked tirelessly on a hot windy day, full of smiles for what they had all achieved. Thank you again your efforts are greatly appreciated.




Carinya Disco

Carinya hosts a disco program.  Live music is provided by Francis Iven and Gerard White and DJ Big Boy (aka Jeff Bahler) play all the latest dance hits.  Everyone had a brilliant day and dance until they can dance no more.
