A lot done, more to do

ONE month into their four month campaign to raise €160,000 to complete the funding for the proposed Tullamore Community Arts Centre and the organisers are quietly confident that they are on target. Although the Members Draw is a four month campaign the organisers are keen to sell as many of the €100 tickets as early as possible.

ONE month into their four month campaign to raise €160,000 to complete the funding for the proposed Tullamore Community Arts Centre and the organisers are quietly confident that they are on target. Although the Members Draw is a four month campaign the organisers are keen to sell as many of the €100 tickets as early as possible.

The huge turnout at the launch of the fundraising campaign last month is an indication of public interest in the Community Arts Centre. However, the organisers of the fundraising campaign are at pains to point out that to make the Community Arts Centre a reality the funds still have to be raised.

If the current sales trend continues the campaign is on target to make €100,000 profit. Normally being on target to raise €100,000 would be a wonderful achievement, pointed out a memmber of the organising committee, “but in our particular case we need to maximise ticket sales and achieve a total profit of €160,000.”

The next stage of the fund-raising campaign is to raise the final €40,000 through Corporate Donations as there is a shortfall of €200,000 in the total cost of building the Community Arts Centre.

“We do not want to burden the general public with more fund raising campaigns in the future so it is very important that our Members Draw is a total success.”
