Avonmore Musical Society fundraiser this Friday

Avonmore Musical Society in Arklow will be holding their main fundraiser this Friday 24th March in the Arklow Bay Hotel. 

The Fundraiser is “Dicey’s Mega Bingo”. The price for a Book and Jackpot Sheet is €10. Doors open at 7.30pm and the first game will be at 8.30pm. There will also be a raffle on the night. 

Avonmore Musical Society unfortunately had to cancel their Annual Easter Production of  “Urinetown” and Dicey’s Mega Bingo was the main fundraiser for the show.

But even though “Urinetown” has been cancelled Avonmore are pushing on with the fundraiser with the intention of holding another show later this year. Chairman of Avonmore Tomas Byrne said that Bingo is a new venture for the society and one they are looking forward to. It should be a great social night with lots of fun for all society members and all who attend. Plus there will be the chance of winning money at the bingo and some nice prizes in the raffle.

He would like to say a big thanks to Dicey O’Reilly for holding & hosting the Bingo and to The Arklow Bay Hotel for the use of the venue. The support is greatly appreciated. Although the Easter show was cancelled the committee are working behind the scenes trying to pick an alternative show for the society to stage later this year. 

Friday night is a way to keep all the members together and to raise some vital funds to help with the next production  It was so disappointing for all involved with Avonmore when the show was cancelled but everyone is raring to get rehearsing again Avonmore are also looking forward to travelling to Gorey next week to support Avonmore’s Director Stephen Acton and all our friends in Gorey Musical Society’s production of “WestSide Story” which runs from 27th March to the 1st April in Gorey Little Theatre. Tickets are available at gr8events.ie
