Businesses can sponsor a hurler
Published 01/04/2014 | 05:34
OUR SENIOR hurlers are making steady strides back towards the top; it will take a lot of time and effort but they are moving in the right direction.
And now there's an opportunity to lend some practical support as a call has gone out to local businesses to sponsor a Wexford hurler.
Club Wexford, the main corporate fundraising vehicle for the G.A.A. in the county, is behind the scheme, and there are many benefits.
Sponsors will receive annual club membership which includes a Club Wexford rain jacket with logo, entrance for two to all hurling and football matches in Co. Wexford in 2014, and access to Leinster final hurling and football tickets.
They will also be presented with a special signed photograph of the Senior hurler and themselves for display in their business premises, along with access to the sponsored hurler twice yearly to promote and showcase their business in any way that they wish.
The hurlers will be allocated to each sponsor in an open draw which ensures that interested businesses have an equal opportunity of sponsoring any member of the current panel.
The total cost of the sponsorship package is €1,000 which can be paid by bank standing order or in ten monthly instalments of €100 if desired.
Anyone interested should get in touch with the Club Wexford Treasurer Ben Bernie on 087-2563476 or firstname.lastname@example.org
And please bear in mind that the footballers haven't been forgotten, as it's hoped to obtain individual sponsors for their panel in 2015.
