Organised by the Rotary Club of West Perth, this Waiters Race aims to raise funds to support the McCusker Alzheimer's Research Foundation and WANRI (Western Australian Neuroscience Research Institute) charity associations. This inaugural event in Perth is an iconic race that is held in over 50 countries worldwide annually to pay tribute to the many waiters that make dining experiences worthwhile.

Waiters will make their way around the cove holding a tray balancing a wine bottle, beer bottle and a wine glass. Spectators on the day are also invited to participate in other exciting activities planned for the day.

Gourmet Food Village
In the picturesque location of Victoria Gardens, a series of stalls and marquees featuring gourmet food, treats and delicacies from local WA producers will make up the gourmet food village at the Waiters Race. This will also showcase the finest produce from restaurants from all over Perth. Visitors are able to watch the race whilst indulging in food and drink while enjoying entertainment in the village, all in the name of charity.

Helicopter Golf Ball Drop
Visitors are able to purchase a ticket to secure their golf ball amongst the 3000 golf balls that will be dropped from a helicopter onto Victoria Gardens at 4pm on the day. The golf ball that finishes either in the hole or closest to it wins 1st prize whilst the next closest balls to the hole also win a number of other great prizes shown below. Everyone is encouraged to test their luck in this event and have a shot at all the huge prizes on offer. Tickets cost $20 and can be purchased here.
