The official launch of Tullow RFC's 'Stars in Your Eyes' fundraiser took place in Mount Wolsely Hotel on Thursday evening. The launch introduced each of the competitors, although some needed no introduction with the Tullow Tank himself, Sean O'Brien in attendance.
The club had previously done 'Strictly Dancing' fundraisers and this year, one of the chief organisers Gina Haskins said she's looking forward to something new.
'It's always exciting when someone comes up with a new idea,' she said. 'We loved doing the dancing and now 'Stars in Your Eyes' is something different and brings its own challenges, but hopefully it'll be a great night and will raise some funds for the club.'
Gina said that the club have always received wonderful support from the people of Tullow and with 14 acts performing on the night, she's hoping that 'Stars in Your Eyes' will be their most successful fundraiser yet.
The event will take place on Sunday, March 16 with doors opening at 7 p.m. Master of Ceremonies on the night will be local broadcaster Brendan Hennessy and the club also hope to have a celebrity judge or two. Rumours are rife in Tullow that rugby legend Sean O'Brien will be showing off his singing talents on the night, which will in itself be worth the €10 entry fee!
The event will be followed by a disco until late. Tickets are available from Gina on 087 6972742, from James Foley on 087 6531168 or by contacting any committee member. For further updates follow the club on Twitter, Facebook or on www.tullowrfc.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
