Westmeath GAA and Club Iarmhí, officially launch their 2016 Fundraising Members’ Draw in The Sheraton Hotel, Athlone on Saturday February 6 at 7.30pm and in the Annebrook Hotel, Mullingar on Sunday February 7 at 7.30pm, to which you all are cordially invited to attend.
This fundraising arm of Westmeath GAA has grown significantly since being founded in 2015, bringing its members a notably increased prize fund of €30,000 this year. Further to this initiative, local company TEG has become the new, title sponsor of Cusack Park and Club Iarmhí for 2016.
“It’s a T.E.A.M. game - Together Everybody Achieves More,’ says Michael Ryan, Westmeath Senior Hurling Manager.
“This year’s fundraising initiative is very inclusive across all codes – each forming an integral part of the one family,” says Tommy Kelly, from local business TEG who are the new title sponsors.
“The results to date in all pre-season competitions have been very encouraging and augur well for a successful season ahead,” cites Paul Daly, Chairman of Club Iarmhí.
Membership this year is €100, and in return each member receives:
A ticket for the members’ draw; Four vouchers, worth €80, for the Annebrook House Hotel Mullingar, The Sheraton Hotel, Athlone, and The Silver Oak Indian Restaurants in both Athlone and Mullingar respectively; a DVD of the notable Westmeath vs. Meath victory in 2015; a newly designed car sticker for 2016.
A bespoke website had been created this year - www.clubiarmhi.ie with dedicated pages for each code. All sponsors and supporters are cordially invited to attend our launches in The Sheraton Hotel, Athlone on Saturday February 6 at 7.30pm and in the Annebrook Hotel, Mullingar on Sunday February 7 at 7.30pm.
We would appreciate your help to provide our teams with the backing and support that their dedication and commitment so richly deserve. Iarmhí Abú!
