Donoughmore GAA Golf Classic

 

Donoughmore Hurling and Football Club will hold a Fund raising Golf Classic at Blarney Golf Resort on Friday 10th July 2015.

 

As you might be aware the running costs of the club are now very great indeed especially with the amount of underage teams to be catered for and the development of our facilities at Lackabawn which are ongoing. The recently developed all weather training pitch complete with floodlights and the proposed construction of a new weighs training facility need immediate financing. The Golf Classic will be one of our major fundraising ventures to help fund these projects.

 

We are hoping to raise as much sponsorship as possible in order to make the day a success and so we would hope that you would be good enough to support us if at all possible. 

 

We would be very grateful if you could co-sponsor a Tee Box or Green at a cost of €50.00.  In return we can assure that your support will receive maximum publicity over the course of the day.  Additionally we would also ask you to consider entering a team for the classic itself, or invite your friends and neighbours to make up a team.  The cost per team of three is €150.00 and this includes a meal in the clubhouse afterwards. 

 

We realise that you probably have many demands for sponsorship but we sincerely hope that you would support us in this venture.

Thanking you in anticipation
