Annual Lotto Package
Support your Club, Support your Community
Dromard GAA is embarking on a campaign to sign up supporters to our weekly lotto draw on a 1 Year subscription basis. In the past we would have sold the majority of our lotto’s at weekends in local pubs and at other social events. With the huge downturn in people going to pubs and attending such events, and indeed with the numbers of young people that have emigrated from the area, the numbers of tickets been sold has been in sharp decline, however the costs of running the club has not changed. In excess of €10,000 must be paid at the beginning of every year for the player injury scheme and affiliations alone and, thereafter there are all the usual week to week costs incurred maintaining the facilities and in teams.
In addition people who no longer live in the area have been inquiring as to how they can participate in the weekly lotto draw and support the club and indeed the senior team who have given such a huge amount of their time to the club over the past 15 years in particular.
The revenue that is generated from this initiative will go to all sections of the club including the Ladies Club, The Minor Club, and 10% will be given to The Latin School Roof Restoration Project.
The main focus of this initiative is to maintain a flow of revenue for the various organisations listed. In order to help achieve this, the club is offering a one year subscription to the lotto so that supporters and contributors are in the draw each week, this equates to a cost to you of just of €1.75 per week. In addition to your numbers being entered into the lotto draw and a chance to win the actual jackpot each week (Currently stands at €9,000), you will also; become a club member at no extra cost, receive a membership card, have voting rights at the AGM, be entered into the draw for All Ireland Tickets, be given access to the Club Newsletter (including videos, interviews, church newsletter and potentially school newsletter) and receive a Dromard GAA Supporters Car sticker.
A local member of the club will be calling upon you during the month of May to go over the proposal in more detail so we appreciate you giving them any support that you can. Payment can be made by cash, cheque, Credit Cards, Bank Transfer, or online payments are also accepted. To pay online go to the “Lotto Membership” section of the Dromard GAA website or click here: (http://www.dromard.longford.gaa.ie/Lotto-Membership)
If you enter into the 1 Year scheme (or for a shorter period) you will not need to purchase the weekly lotto tickets during the period your scheme is active. However, the weekly €2 lotto will still be in place for supporters who choose to contribute that way, just as it has been in the past.
