KerryLadies Gaelic Football (LGFA) has literally gone to the dogs – well next week they will be – as they are planning a fundraising night at the dogs.
Both club and county have joined forces to create a unique fundraiser for the betterment of ladies football in Kerry.
All funds raised on Saturday, May 25 will be distributed evenly between club and county ensuring the growth of club football and the participation of county teams at intercounty level.
With a 10-card race on the night, there promises to be a host of other activities to appeal to all the family from music, raffles, face painting, bouncing castle and a club relay race at the Kingdom Greyhound Track.
“The club relay race will consist of a team of four from each club racing against other clubs in their club jerseys, adding a novel race to the evening’s proceedings,” Paul Murphy, PRO with LGFA Kerry, said.
“There is an added incentive for the clubs who sell the most tickets of having their affiliations fees paid for the 2020 season, along with four O’Neill’s footballs for that club.”
The senior team will be in attendance on the night for fans to meet their heroes and a chance for photographs and autographs to be taken, he added.
Tickets can be sourced from your local club and if any business would like to place an advertisement in the race program, they can do so by contacting Anthony on 087 2713507 or email@example.com, orPaul 087 7665344 or firstname.lastname@example.org.Advertisements costs start at €100 for a full page and €50 for a half page.
