What’s Pin & Win?

Pin & Win is the Melbourne Cup Carnival’s major annual fundraising activity, that will again support the Starlight Children’s Foundation in 2016.

Since 1995, the Victoria Racing Club has given charities the platform to raise more than $4 million through the sale of the miniature Emirates Melbourne Cup souvenir pins, helping to change lives and support our community.

Every dollar raised through the 2016 Pin & Win program will help fund the Starlight Express Rooms, which aim brighten the lives of seriously ill children. The medical free havens provide the Starlight children with a welcome break from the relentless cycle of medical treatments and procedures.

Souvenir pins can be purchased online, from volunteers at selected Metro train stations and TAB outlets, or from roaming sellers at Flemington racedays until 5 November.
