Please note that as part of our fundraising efforts for the coming season we will be holding a ‘Race Night’ on Saturday 8th November in the Sunnybank Hotel, Glasnevin (starting at 8pm sharp).
We appreciate that it is a difficult time financially for most people, however our aim is to keep our annual fees down to an affordable level. As a committee we have set ourselves a target to fundraise €10,000 this year – this is about 20% of the annual cost of running the club. If we achieve this fundraising target it effectively means we are reducing our annual fees by 20% – we would therefore appreciate your continued support.
- We will be showing ten films of actual horse races on the night. We are looking for sponsors for each race. The cost of sponsoring a race is €100 – in return the race will be named in your honour & your name and/or company logo will be printed on the race programme.
- There are ten horses in each race. We are selling horses & jockeys in each race for €10. The owner of the winning horse & the winning jockey will each receive €50 in prize money.
- We will also have a tote table set up on the night where you can place bets of €2. You will be given a ticket for each bet and if your horse wins you can collect your winnings from the tote table.
Horse and jockeys can be purchased from John Bridgeman (Mob 087 2591371), Keith Lynch (086 8472837), Michelle Gaffney (087 2288759), Paul Reynolds (087 2334608), Peter Reilly (087 3326636) & Tadhg Murphy (085 1743992). You can also talk to any of these members if you would like to sponsor a race. (Please find Race sellers card & poster below)
It should be a good night so hopefully you can make it & bring a few friends along!
