Win A Trip To New York Draw Rescheduled

Saturday 7th January 2023 at 10:22 AM

Win A Trip To New York draw will now take place on 7th April 2023.

Castlerea Musical society was formed in 1967 for the purpose of staging a pantomime to fundraise for the O’Rourke Park Development Committee (GAA). Its members were all members of Castlerea Community and its hinterlands. From this, a tradition and musical theatre continued in Castlerea. Today, our musical society has staged over 50 productions in Castlerea. The Win A Trip To New York fundraiser was launched to generate much-needed funds to refinance our society post COVID pandemic to ensure we could cover the costs of our 2023 production, “The Addams Family – The Musical”.

We decided to create a fundraiser giving away a trip to New York to support our musical society, while at the same time offering the winner(s) an incredible prize. Running a fundraising campaign like this and raising the funds to pay for the prize takes an incredible amount of work, from a dedicated team consisting of committee members and society members. We have now taken the very difficult decision to postpone our draw until 7th of April, 2023. We have not achieved our goals in the timeline that we set. Different issues arose, some within our control, and some out of our control, means that we are extending our draw in order to achieve our goal.

This fundraiser is a once in a lifetime project for our society, and one that we are determined to make a success in order to proceed with our 2023 Production. We can ensure everyone that, regardless of how the rest of this fundraising campaign performs, one winner(s) will win a trip to New York plus €15,000 spending money on Friday, 7th of April 2023. 

We appreciate your understanding and would like to thank everyone who has supported our draw and society to date.

Castlerea Musical Society
