Glebe North FC Fire Damage RaffleOctober 20, 2012 ADMIN 0
Glebe North F.C. held a raffle in the White Hart Inn on Friday night. The Funds raised from the raffle will go towards replacing the maintenance equipment that was destroyed in the fire that vandals caused to the ground keeper’s shed in June this year.
Following the fire, the Committee decided to organise the fundraising raffle and we approached the business people in the town and asked for sponsorship and we received a great response, and all the prizes in the raffle were sponsored, and some of the sponsors wanted to have a pitch side sign erected as well.
We want to thank the following businesses for their support, Arvato Digital, the McCormack brothers Brendan, John and Mark, Liverpool Supporters Club, Supervalue, Shared Access, Platinum Gym, Wavin Pipes, Micheal Dwyer Electric, Advance Hair Design, Jack Murphy’s, Paul’s Pharmacy, McCartan’s Pharmacy, Notionz, Harvey ‘s Restaurant, Celtic Motor Factors, Spar Balbriggan and Quality Print Direct who sponsored the tickets.
The Committee would like to thank all the people who sold or bought tickets and the schoolboy managers and parents and helpers and the ladies committee and all our supporters who gave us assistance to run the raffle.
The Committee expect to raise about €5,000 from the raffle which will help us to replace some of the equipment lost in the fire. Result Sheets will be put up around the town over the next few days.
