Players at Ballinrobe GAA Club’s Vegas Fun Casino Night on Friday night next (March 18) could win some top prizes, including home heating oil, shop vouchers, hampers, tickets to local events, and membership of Ballinrobe Racecourse.
“Thanks to generous local businesses, we have been able to put together a great list of prizes for players who get to the final ‘top ten’ table on the night,” said John Gilrane, Treasurer, Ballinrobe GAA Club.
“On the night, and afterwards, we will publish the full list of sponsors.”
The event starts in the Valkenburg at 8pm, and tickets, costing €20, are available from club members, a number of local outlets, on the door on the night. The entrance fee will entitle you to a number of free punts on the tables, and finger food will also be served.
“The key point is that this is a fun night that can be enjoyed by club members, spouses, friends, supporters and anyone else who wants to come along for a good night’s entertainment,” explained John Gilrane, treasurer, Ballinrobe GAA club.
“It is an opportunity for the club to raise funds for our extensive under-age and adult football programmes.
“We now have ladies and men’s clubs and we are striving to fulfil our Coaching Plan aspiration of providing football for all.”
There will be music on the night and some mystery guests as dealers. A huge club effort is now underway to ensure it is a genuinely fun night that will also act as an early-season social occasion for club members and supporters.
