Naomh Columba launched their latest fundraising initiative at Páirc na nGael on Sunday afternoon last. The ‘Lucky Dip Draw’ is a new departure for the Southwest club, and it is hoped that it will raise much needed funds to aid with the ongoing costs of fielding teams at all levels.
Anyone wishing to enter the draw can purchase a ticket from the draw drum. The price of the ticket depends on the number of the ticket drawn, for example; number 1 costs 1 cent, number 1500 costs €15, number 478 costs €4.78 etc. The tickets are numbered from 1 to 2000, and the draw will take place when all the tickets have been sold.
Club representatives will be in attendance at all major events over the coming weeks, and are appealing to the general public to kindly support the initiative. The prizes up for grabs are a top prize of €2,000, second prize of €1,000, and five prizes of €100. There are also over €500 worth of spotprizes to be won.
