Listowel Emmets Monthly Draw
Commencing shortly, we will be running a monthly draw that will take place on the last Wednesday of each month at the Clubhouse. The cost of the draw will be €5 per month which is less than the cost of a weekly Lottery Quickpick. The organising committee is currently selling tickets and we are encouraging people to sign up for a yearly ticket for €60 that will also include you in a special draw for 2 prizes of €100 each that will take place on the night of our first draw.
The annual prize fund will be €10,000 and there will be 8 guaranteed winners each month.
We fully appreciate the financial challenges facing our community at present but by supporting a successful Emmets Club, with players at all levels and ability, it will give the same community enormous pleasure now and in the years to come. We would like to acknowledge your support in the past and hope you will be equally generous again in supporting our club.
The Annual General Meeting of Listowel Emmets will take place on Friday 1st February 2013 at 7.30pm in Frank Sheehy Park. All nominations and motions need to be with the Secretary Norah Browne no later than Monday 28th January 2013.
