Come Dine with Me Fundraiser

Saturday 1st of July promises to be a great night.  This novel fundraiser has the potential to involve a huge number of people.

It works like this:

 The club is seeking generous hosts to hold a dinner party at their house at their own expense.

 We are particularly seeking the parents of current players to volunteer.  

 The host invites friends or family around and charges €25 a head - this money is passed to the Club.

 The dinner commences around 6.30pm - 7.00pm

 Between 11pm & midnight, a complimentary taxi will take you and your guests to the GAA for the After Party.

 During the night hosts will be encouraged to share videos and photos on our social media

 The snaps will be collated and shown in the Pavilion along with the Judging & Prize Giving.

 There will be music & entertainment along with a raffle and lots of prizes for participants. 

If you wish to get involved please contact Colm on  087-7638171 or treasurer.edenderry.offaly@gaa.ie or message us on Facebook
