News → Save the date: Loreto's off to the races March 22nd!
As you all know we are all very proud that the Loreto First Team will be participating in the Club European Championships in Leicester next June. In order to help raise funds for this event, we plan to run a fun-filled Race Night on Saturday 22nd March. It’s a dead cert and definitely odd’s on to be a brilliant night.
Before the Race Night itself, we need everybody to get involved in supporting this event. A lot of work needs to be done in advance to pre-sell the following:
- 10 Race Sponsors @ €200 each.
- €2,000 Euro worth of Advertisements in the Official Race Night Programme
- ¼ Page Adverts (€50) / ½ Page Adverts (€100)
- 80 Owners @ €25 each
- 80 Trainers @ €25 each
- 80 Jockeys @ €25 each
Many thanks to the following Club Members who have come on board to act as Sales Team Co-ordinators in order to ensure we achieve all our sales prior to the night itself:
1st Team – Sarah Clarke & Cathy McKean
2nd Team – Smithy
3rd Team – Laura Fanning
4th Team – Bronnie
5th Team – Kiara Ryan
6th Team & VET – Leanne Berkery & Hilly Hardiman
Past Players & Associates – Grainne Cregan
Junior Club – Wendy Byrne
Very special thanks to Wendy Byrne who has kindly agreed to produce the Race Night Programme that will contain all the details of the Race Sponsors, names of the Trainers, Owners and Jockeys and the various advertisements. Wendy we are a lucky club to have somebody of your talent and commitment, thanks a mil.
As there will only be eight horses running in each race, all Owners, Trainers and Jockeys will have a one in eight chance of getting into the Winners Circle to each collect a fabulous prize. As well as cheering on your own horse, Punters on the night can try their luck by backing other horses on the TOTE to win cash prizes.
As with all the best Race Meetings, on the night you will have a chance of parading in the Winners Circle in a competition to find both the “Best Dressed” and the “Most Originally Dressed” person. President Sue and our Club Sponsor Owen Chubb of Victorian Garden Buildings will be the deciding Judges and a prize of a €50 Dundrum voucher awaits the winners of each category.
As this is our only fund-raising event this season we want a really large turnout for this Race Night, so apart from attending the Race Night yourself, we are asking all members to invite your family and friend, and make sure you’re all under Starters Orders for 8.30pm when the first race will kick off.
Finally, after all the races are finished, the well known “Loreto Party Spirit” will continue as ever into the early hours with entertainment by both DJ Doug & a Glenside Tribute band and sure who knows, you may be a Winner Alright and meet your very own “stallion” on the dance floor!
See you there Punters!!!
