300 Club and Déise Draw
As you may be aware we recently launched our “300 Club” Fundraising initiative. This is similar to the Development Fundraiser we ran in the last number of years whereby people donated €300 to the club to help with the development of our club grounds. The money raised from this latest version will be used to help pay for extending our hurling wall and astro turf, provide additional car parking and repay our loan with Croke Park. Those who sign up for the 300 Club will be given a Déise Draw ticket and it also includes their membership. The €300 can be paid in instalments by Direct Debit or up front, and all monies raised will be used to improve our facilities for all our playing members, both young and old. If you are interested in joining the 300 Club then please contact any committee member and they will be happy to help you join up.
The Déise Draw has been changed for 2017 and it now consists of 6 draws costing €15 a month or €90 in total. The Déise Draw has been our main fundraiser for many years and the funds raised from the draw help us meet the ever rising costs associated with running our club. If you would like to join the draw please contact any Committee Member.
Club Leisure Wear
Our new range of Club Leisure wear has arrived and is proving extremely popular with young and old alike. If you missed out on the gear this time then there’s no need to panic as we will be taking orders in the next fortnight, with dates posted on our website and Facebook page.
We ask that all team managers book their times for training/matches with Michael O’Donovan in advance of returning to training. Managers must notify Michael in advance if they wish to change from their allocated time.
Our club bingo session continues in the CBS Hall this Sunday night with a jackpot of €850.
