Cancer support charity, Recovery Haven Kerry and Churchill GAA Club are joining forces for a fundraising Night at the Dogs at Tralee Greyhound Stadium on Saturday, May 20th.
As well as the usual top-class race card, a fantastic night of entertainment is planned at the Tralee track, with a bumper programme of family fun also on the cards – including facepainting, a magician, bouncy castles and live music.
There will also be some super spot prizes up for grabs in a fundraising raffle, which has been very generously supported by several local businesses.
And for the fashionistas among you, the event will also feature a Best Dressed Ladies and Gents competition, with Celsius Menswear Tralee donating a €100 voucher for the best dressed man, while Diane Jeffers of Jasmine Boutique, Tralee, will be assessing the style amongst the ladies – and has kindly offered a €150 Jasmine voucher for the winner.
Speaking ahead of the May 20th event, Churchill GAA Chairman, Kenneth Lenihan, explained the importance of the fundraising night for his club.
“This is the club’s major fundraiser for 2023, and the monies raised will enable us to push on with enhancements to our facilities in both Churchill and The Spa, as well as continuing to resource our vibrant underage scene (boys & girls) and our two senior teams,” he explained.
Equally, Recovery Haven Kerry manager, Gemma Fort, also stressed the importance of people getting behind the event in support of the charity.
“Given the increased demand for our services, we are now in the final stages of a state-of-the-art extension project at our centre at Haig’s Terrace, Tralee, which when complete, will allow us to cater for even more clients in an impressive new Haven. This fundraiser is vital in allowing us to compete this building and continue to provide even more vital services to those who truly need it in the community.”
Tickets for the upcoming Night at the Dogs are on sale now for €10 from Recovery Haven Kerry, 5 Haig’s Terrace, Tralee (V92TN35) or from Churchill GAA club members and officials. Children under 14 go free.
