Listowel Emmets Ladies Launch Major Fundraiser

Listowel Emmets Ladies Gaelic Football Club this week launched their major fundraising initiative which is hoped will help the club progress and develop into one of the leading ladies football clubs in Kerry. Themed “Sex and the City meets Listowel Emmets Desperate Housewives”, it is hoped this event will bring the women of north Kerry together for a night of fun and fashion on May 14th in The Listowel Arms Hotel beginning at 8.00pm. “Basically what we are asking is that women donate clothes that are new or nearly new that we can sell on the night” said Mary Beades event organiser. “Listowel is well known in Kerry and the surrounding areas for its great boutiques and therefore we felt this would be a novel way for women to make space in their wardrobes by donating clothes and maybe fill that space again with great value clothes at the event and or by supporting the local businesses in the town.”

Kevin O’Sullivan club chairman stressed the importance of fundraising at this time for the club “we are currently catering for up to 150 girls of all ages and in order to provide quality coaching, equipment and facilities for these players we have to generate some funds”. The response from the public so far has been excellent and the club are asking everyone to support them by donating some clothes for the event and by coming along on the night.

“We have lined up some great features on the night to include hair stylists, photography sessions and exhibitions from make- up and complimentary holistic therapy specialists so there will be something for everyone” said Mary.

Donations will be collected at the Listowel Town Park on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 7.30pm where training takes place or by contacting any member of the Listowel Emmets Ladies Football Club.

Tickets for the event on the 14th May are available from club members, admission €10.
