Pin & Win
2014 is the 20th year of Pin & Win, the VRC's major annual fundraising activity.
It began in 1995, in support of the Australian Red Cross, and since then has raised well in excess of $3.5 million for local charities through the sale of the Melbourne Cup souvenir pins.
Through Pin & Win, the VRC has partnered with 12 different charities over the last 19 years: SecondBite, Vision Australia, Muscular Dystrophy Association, Challenge Cancer Support Network, Australian Red Cross, Mission Australia, Olivia Newton-John Cancer and Wellness Centre, Alfred Hospital, Camp Quality, Kids Help Line, Kids in Crisis and Riding for the Disabled
Standard pins are $5 and limited edition diamante pins are $10.
2014 pins are available to purchase from 1 October - 8 November 2014.
