Club Notes 12th June 2017

posted Jun 12, 2017, 9:41 AM by Ger McGloin

Raheny GAA invites all Club Members, Families and Friends to join us in a 5km Fundraising Walk within St. Anne's Park on Saturday 24th June 2017@12:30 - 14:30 [walk starts from pitch 9].
The aim of "The Rush to Flush" fundraising walk is to raise vital funds to renovate the toilet areas within the Clubhouse, starting at the ground floor!! If you have been in the Club recently, you will know that these toilets are long overdue to be flushed out!!  - this is where we need your support...
All players within the Club will be provided with a Sponsorship Card and are asked to seek sponsorship for “The Rush to Flush” walk.  Cards can be returned to mentors before or on the 24th June.
For those club members and friends who do not receive a sponsorship card, a contribution of €10 per person / €25 per family is requested on the day.
On return to the Club we will have music and some light refreshments.
Finally, this is a Club initiative and we need all teams support in improving our Clubhouse/facilities and this is a great place to start... All funds raised from this fundraising walk will be used solely to renovate the toilets. All Club members will be kept updated on monies raised, costs and planned dates of refurbishments.
We hope that you, your teams, families and friends will get behind this project. 


As always we are looking for volunteers to help with registering our new players, or simply to chop fruit. If you have 30mins to spare to help out on Saturday mornings please contact Alison on 086-2909022.
