A fundraising idea worth considering?
The Cork GAA Clubs Draw commenced in 1992 following the Purchase of Páirc Uí Rinn grounds by the Cork County Board.
It had three main aims:
- To develop Páirc Uí Rinn as a modern stadium.
- To provide funds for coaching and youth development throughout the County.
- To provide Clubs with finance to fund their ongoing developments both on and off the field.
The Draw has been an outstanding success, with the Clubs of the County making over a staggering €15 million euros since the Draw commenced (at no risk to the Clubs as the Cork County Board funds the prizes and admin costs).
The Cork Draw is now run online on SportLoMo.
GAA County Boards and GAA Clubs are one of SportLoMo’s biggest customers.
